Steve Turner, Beat Instrumental, January 1973

Elton John is a fast worker. He just about has to be because he allows himself only ten days to write and rehearse all the material before recording an album. So far things have been good for him. Honky Chateau was written in four days and half the songs on his next album were produced in a single day.

Total word count of piece: 1616
