  • Victim of Love

    For his 1979 album Victim of Love, Elton John’s goal was to make, as he put it, “a record to which discriminating night clubbers could dance.” And that he did. A one hundred percent disco album, Victim of Love was conceived by producer Pete Bellotte, the man behind some of Donna Summer’s greatest hits. Gone are Bernie Taupin’s complex character studies, and in their place are seven 4/4 dance tracks that segue seamlessly together, beginning with an extended disco cover of Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode.” It’s an interesting album in that John doesn’t compose or play piano on any of the tracks, just sings. Also featured are Doobie Brothers Patrick Simmons and Michael McDonald on vocals, the Tower of Power’s Lenny Pickett on sax, Toto’s lead guitarist Steve Lukather, and in-demand session bassist Marcus Miller and percussionist Paulinho Da Costa.
