Description

Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. Originally released in 1972, Honky Chateau is a rollicking collection of ballads, rockers, blues, country-rock, and soul songs. Elton John is at the top of his form, crafting immaculate pop songs with memorable melodies and powerful hooks. Breakout hits include “Honky Cat” and “Rocket Man.” Honky Château was titled after the 18th century French chateau where it was recorded, Château d’Hérouville. The album reached number one in the US, the first of seven consecutive US number one albums for Elton John. A third single, “Hercules,” was prepared for release, but never materialized. This album marks the beginning of John’s transition from a singer/songwriter to a more rock ‘n’ roll style. It was also the first album to feature John’s road band of Dee Murray on bass and Nigel Olsson on drums (along with new member Davey Johnstone on electric and acoustic guitars and other fretted instruments) as the core group of musicians.
