Elton John: Captain Fantastic And The Brown Dirt Cowboy

John Tobler, ZigZag, November 1975

THIS IS PROBABLY the latest review you've read of the record under scrutiny. Having read several other reviews in various weekly and monthly publications, a concept occurred to me which perhaps could be filed under "Circulation: necessity for exclusive or at least early reviews". There are at least two reviews I've read with which I disagree to a greater or lesser extent. Interestingly enough, they're both by critics who I don't recall reading on the subject of Elton in the past.
