Mona Lisas And Mad Hatters
Label: Virgin Emi
Honky Château delivered Elton John from singer-songwriter status to pop star, thanks to songs such as "Honky Cat" and "Rocket Man." This is one of Elton's best albums; both he and Bernie Taupin have hit their stride. Casual listeners may opt for any of his Greatest Hits albums, but Honky Château should be in every fan's music collection.
