  • Honky Château

    Honky Château (1972) was named after the French castle, Château d'Hérouville, where it was recorded, and is the first in a string of seven consecutive number-one albums from Elton John. Incorporating a wider range of styles, it includes the hits "Rocket Man (I Think It's Going to Be a Long, Long Time)" and the New Orleans-style "Honky Cat," which swaps guitar for banjo and features an extensive horn section. With the exception of Jean-Luc Ponty's electric violin on "Mellow" and "Amy," John left out the grandiose string arrangements, pointing to his transition from singer-songwriter to pop-rock musician. Also notable, Honky Château was the first album to prominently feature John's road band (bassist Dee Murray, drummer Nigel Olsson, and new guitarist Davey Johnstone) instead of session musicians. And if you listen closely to the tongue-in-cheek "I Think I'm Going to Kill Myself," you can hear the tap dancing of "Legs" Larry Smith accompanying John's honky-tonk piano solo. Fun Fact: John has called the more minimal, New York ballad "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters" one of his all-time favorites.
