Captain Fantastic And The Brown Dirt Cowboy

Captain Fantastic And The Brown Dirt Cowboy

Elton’s ninth studio album was an unquestionable critical and commerical smash. It entered the Billboard Top 200 Chart at the #1 spot, something no album had ever done before, was nominated for two Grammys: Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Performance – Male, and has been certified triple platinum by the RIAA. In 2012, it placed at #158 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list.
