WTB: Elton John

"Captain Fantastic & The Brown Dirt Cowboy was written from start to finish in chronological order while John was sailing from France to New York — a journey last lasted just four days. Captain Fantastic doesn’t sound cobbled together, however. It lives up to its name — and John regards it arguably his best record."

What record did the LA Times say was a "near-perfect album that artists often spend a whole career trying to produce"? How long did it take John to write the Goodbye Yellow Brick Road double album? What song is about John's cocaine addiction? Find out the answers to these questions and more as I go through Elton John's back catalogue album by album [well, most of them].
