Vintage Vinyl Wednesday

Whew! What a busy Wednesday! Work, gym, getting locked out of my car -_-  Anyhoos!  There is still time for a little vintage vinyl.

Since it is late, I thought I would bring you something with a mellow speed.

First released in the United States in October of 1970, Your Song by Sir Elton John is listed as # 137 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time (http://www.rollingstone.com/music/lists/the-500-greatest-songs-of-all-time-20110407/elton-john-your-song-20110526).  Written by Bernie Taupin, in collaboration with John, Rolling Stone writes:

The soaring piano ballad would become the breakthrough single that introduced John to America

Originally the B-side to the lesser loved, Take Me To Your Pilot, Your Song peaked at #8  during its  14 weeks on the American Billboard charts, and has remained one of the most beloved ballads of all time.

This recording is from my copy of Elton John’s Greatest Hits album, which was released in November of 1974.
