This collaboration between Elton and Leon Russell, about whom Elton has waxed poetic many times, captures the essence of good time piano rock and roll. The pair trade verses and solos while the supporting band adds depth to their songs, evoking the 1970s vibe for which Elton is famous. The album reached #2 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart, #3 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, and has been certified gold by the CRIA and silver by the BPI. The song If It Wasn’t For Bad was nominated for a 2011 Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals. The record scored a perfect five-star review from Rolling Stone.
