John, Elton

Rock Of The Westies
Sealed 1975 Original With The Original Gold Circle Price Code Sticker Still Intact On The Shrink Wrap. Difficult To Find Without A Saw Cut Or Cut Out Hole. ".....The Ballsy No-Nonsense "Street Kids" And The Aggressive Gringo Rock Of The Zz Top Sound-alike "Grown Some Funk Of Your Own" Contrast With The Poignant Power Balladry Of "I Feel Like A Bullet (In The Gun Of Robert Ford)" Or The Dark And Brooding Tale Of Addiction On "Feed Me." Perhaps Inspired By The Crossover R&b Appeal Of "Philadelphia Freedom," The Up-tempo "Island Girl" Bears A Distinct And Danceable Groove That Lies Somewhere Between A Slightly Jamaican Vibe And Disco. Perhaps More Soulful In The Traditional Sense Are The Boogie-based "Hard Luck Story" Or Propulsive Bo Diddley Beat That Drives "Billy Bones And The White Bird." While The Increasingly Fickle Public As Well As Lack Of A Strong Follow-up To The Chart-topping Single "Island Girl" May Have Prevented Rock Of The Westies From Becoming The Heir Apparent To Captain Fantastic And The Brown Dirt Cowboy, In The Wake Of John's Flawless Predecessors It Remains A Strong And Worthwhile Entry That Also Set The Stage For Its Follow-Up, Blue Moves." LIndsay Planer, AMG.
