So busy had he been over the previous year and a half (more on that in a moment) and so harsh was the now-overlooked criticism he was receiving from critics and the general public, he was drained by the end of creating this album. He told journalist John Tobler in 1973 that <em>Madman</em>, &ldquo;in fact has been the most personal and painful album to make.&rdquo;</p> <p>Consider that in the time since Elton began recording his eponymous LP, just 19 months prior to starting the <em>Madman</em> sessions, he had completed three tours each of the US and UK (in fact, the 1971 sessions at Trident had to be scheduled around 61 of his concerts across the US, Japan, Australia, and the UK) and released no less than four albums!</p></div><div class="imagetext__ctas"></div></div></article><div data-css-mh7vmj="" class="separator separator__module-default"></div><blockquote data-css-svpuxd=""><span>“<!-- -->I&#x27;d wanted to do this kind of uncluttered album when we cut Madman.

Elton and Bernie had already pretty much gone through the backlog of material that filled their first three albums. As Bernie said during a November 1970 interview on WNEW Radio in New York, “During the last year we haven’t written as much as we did because we’ve been doing so much.” They considered including two songs that Elton had recently recorded, <strong>Honey Roll</strong> and <strong>Can I Put You On</strong>, but both were instead designated for the movie <em>Friends</em> earlier in the year.</p> <p>Bernie also noted that all the traveling they were doing (the lyricist went out on the road with Elton during this time and joined him for some promotional events) would affect the lyric content of their material.</p></div></div></div><div data-css-mh7vmj="" class="separator separator__module-default"></div><div data-css-1dcfv9p="" class="text text--cols-2"><div class="text__contentwrapper"><div class="text__content text__content--cols-2"><p>Indeed, it already had. There is no better evidence of that than the songs that open each side of the LP. <strong>Tiny Dancer</strong> is a love letter to the vibe, weather, and especially women of California who Bernie observed during his first trip there in August 1970. He noticed immediately the difference from the British environment he had grown up in, later saying how listening to the song over time reminded him of driving down the warm L.A. freeways with the radio on and the windows open, amongst a virtual ocean of swaying hips in faded denim bell-bottom jeans.</p> <p>And then there is <strong>Indian Sunset</strong>, song one on side two of the vinyl. With all of his already fertile British imagination creating wonderfully evocative stories of the Old West and other Stateside things he read about in books or heard in songs by Marty Robbins and the like, actually seeing what was going on in the US gave the Lincolnshire lyricist a much deeper appreciation of the plight of Native Americans.</p></div></div></div><div data-css-mh7vmj=""

Playing block chords to the lyric sheet perched on his white piano, and still developing his vocal phrasing, he explained, “as soon as you get to the word ‘ballerina,’ you know it’s not going to be fast; it’s got to be sort of gentle and quite slow.”</p></div></div></div><div data-css-mh7vmj="" class="separator separator__module-default"></div><div data-css-1dcfv9p="" class="text text--cols-2"><div class="text__contentwrapper"><h2 class="text__heading">EltonJohn.com spoke with BJ Cole, the song’s pedal steel guitar player, about his recollections of the sessions for &#x27;Tiny Dancer&#x27;.</h2><div class="text__content text__content--cols-2"><p>“I knew Elton (Reg) because I was in a band called Cochise and the guitar player, Mick Grabham [later in Procol Harum], had been in Plastic Penny, who were published by Dick James Music. Rick Wills was in that band as well, who went on to be in Foreigner, and also, our drummer had been playing with Joker’s Wild, which was the band that David Gilmour had before Pink Floyd. So, although the band Cochise never amounted to a massive thing, I got to meet an awful lot of people who went on to be big. We did our demos in the Dick James Studio, which was legendary, and got to know Reg that way. He was around the office. Just a lovely guy. I sort of identified with him, what with the glasses and everything. And I also got to know Steve Brown, who was the guy that later rang me up to come to Trident.</p> <p>“They’d used pedal steel on <em>Tumbleweed Connection</em>. Gordon Huntley. He was the top pedal steel player in London at the time; he’d been around for years. So I was very honored to get the call from Steve. He rang me around four in the afternoon and said, ‘Can you come in this evening? Around 10pm.’ So I packed up my Emmons Pedal Steel, imported from America, and off I went!</p> <p>“The song wasn’t fully arranged when I got there. I said hello to Elton, Gus, Robin, Paul Buckmaster and everyone (I knew all the band, except Davey, from DJM)…set up around 10 or 11 o’clock. And between getting there and finishing around 6 in the morning, we were actually banging the arrangement together - all of us. It’s one of the longest and most complex arrangements he’s ever done, and that’s because we spent about six hours working on it. Paul was mainly there to take notes for writing the string arrangement, some of which came off the pedal steel part.</p> <p>“Elton was delightful. He was just one of the guys, basically. He was business-like, in a musical way. Relaxed. And we all did the Goon stuff, that was the British humor at the time. That was the sensibility.</p> <p>“I over-played on that session…to the max [laughing]. I had plenty of time to expand into the role, especially in the middle section where I slide up and down over quite a wide range. Which I normally wouldn’t think of doing. It was very interesting: Gus or Robin didn’t cut in the bits they wanted to use [in the mixing process]; they left it all in and faded me in and out. The strings and the backing vocals were the only things that were added. But I’m very proud of my part and of how I came in at the second verse [before any other band instrument]. There is no other pop record like it, really, in terms of the pedal steel’s contribution.</p> <p>“It was a very special experience, and it had a major impact on my career. It wasn’t my first session, but it started my career as a session player, really. After that, everybody rang me! I was just working flat out. The pedal steel wasn’t as clear on the vinyl, but as soon as it was mastered for CD, it became much more clear; I think there was some eq’ing going on in the upper frequencies that enhanced the part. I do not play with an ‘American accent’, as British players tend to do on pedal steel, and I am a voyeur, like Elton is. Like Sting is. They take the American style and they reinterpret it. I play like an English pedal steel player who is reinterpreting an American instrument. I take the same role as they do. Elton is passionate about American music. And I am passionate about American music…and an American instrument! And that is the thing that has created my career.</p> <p>“The session all worked out so well. I think I was in a state of shock after it. Everyone was very jolly. But I had no idea what a big thing it was going to be until I saw ‘Almost Famous’ and they’re all singing it on the bus.”</p></div></div></div><div data-css-mh7vmj="" class="separator separator__module-default"></div><article data-css-13o9mbn="" class="imagetext imagetext--left"><div class="imagetext__imagewrapper"><img src="https://d3c0x8onoccsn3.cloudfront.net/400/800/DA1653249675Lev-Good.jpg" alt="Levon"/></div><div class="imagetext__contentwrapper"><h2 class="imagetext__title">Levon</h2><div class="imagetext__content"><p>Recorded: February 27, 1971 - 1st session attempt not used / Master: 2nd session</p> <p><strong>Musicians</strong><br /> Elton: piano and vocals / Barry Morgan: drums / Brian Odgers: bass / Brian Dee: harmonium / Les Thatcher: acoustic guitar / Caleb Quaye: electric guitar / Lesley Duncan, Sue &amp; Sunny, Barry St. John, Liza Strike: backing vocals / orchestra arranged and conducted by Paul Buckmaster.</p> <p>After attempting three songs in an earlier session that Saturday, Elton and the band regrouped after a break and recorded this, the first final take of the <em>Madman</em> sessions.

It was when Barry Morgan, the drummer on <strong>Levon</strong> played the drum fill in the wrong place, and it was fabulous. It was during take three or four, and he misread the chart. Barry accidentally jumped down a complete line and carried on playing even though he realized what he&#x27;d done. He played a written drum fill in the wrong place. When Barry came up to the control room to listen to the playback, I was grinning my head off. I said, &quot;Barry, that was a ... brilliant drum fill. What on earth made you put it there?&quot; He said, &quot;Oh man, I&#x27;m really sorry. I screwed up.&quot; I said, &quot;Barry, it was a moment of genius.&quot; He said, &quot;No. No. We&#x27;ll have to do another take.&quot; I said, &quot;No way, you&#x27;ve got to hear it.&quot; So we played it back, and everybody thought it was brilliant. And he was like, &quot;Are we going to do another take?&quot; I&#x27;m going, &quot;No.&quot; And he&#x27;s going, &quot;Come on, guys. We have to do another take.&quot; And we&#x27;re going, &quot;No.&quot; The only reason it bothered him was that he knew he&#x27;d made a mistake, but it was a ... brilliant mistake. That doesn&#x27;t happen if you are programming music. Then it is all coming from one person&#x27;s point of view and not from a dozen or more people. There are no surprises.

As Gus explained, “When Elton first played me the song, he said, ‘Right, that (opening) lick, I don’t hear it on piano…I really think it’s a guitar lick. An acoustic guitar.’ And I went, ‘Oh man, now this is really complicated!’ Because of its feel and harmonics.”</p> <p>Having worked with Davey recently on albums by the band Magna Carta as well as Bernie Taupin’s first solo album (of spoken poetry over music), Gus recommended him for the job after a previous attempt at the song with guitarists Michael Chapman and Mick Ronson on May 18, 1970, during the sessions for <em>Tumbleweed Connection</em> did not work out. “So Davey came in and did it,” Gus said. “And then subsequently played on two of the other songs [on <em>Madman Across The Water</em>] because Elton was so knocked out with his playing.”</p> <p>So knocked out, in fact, that Davey was soon asked to join the band full-time, and has remained with Elton pretty much ever since, appearing on all but a handful of Elton&#x27;s studio albums. Davey has also played on every band tour but one that Elton has done since 1972, and now is in charge of much of the behind-the-scenes work on the tours, closely consulting with Elton as to what songs are played on stage each night, and rehearsing the band for each tour.</p> <p>Not bad for a guy asked to come in and lay down a little A-minor acoustic lick on a Saturday afternoon.</p></div></div></div><div data-css-mh7vmj="" class="separator separator__module-default"></div><div data-css-1dcfv9p="" class="text text--cols-2"><div class="text__contentwrapper"><h2 class="text__heading">As Davey explained it on his social media in August 2021:</h2><div class="text__content text__content--cols-2"><p>&quot;50 years ago, in August of 1971, I walked into a studio in the Soho district of London. I was a 20-year-old musician who was getting noticed because of my guitar, banjo, mandolin and sitar playing.</p> <p>&quot;The session was being produced by Gus Dudgeon, already known for his work with David Bowie, Ralph McTell, Mike Chapman and Magna Carta. The artist that day was named Reg, and on meeting this shy but immensely talented guy, I knew I was becoming part of something magical.</p> <p>&quot;Reg used the stage name Elton John, and he had just done a club tour in the USA with his trio which featured Dee Murray and Nigel Olsson.</p> <p>&quot;He had woken up a sleepy music scene with his outrageous piano-driven rock and a bunch of irresistible songs penned by himself and lyricist, Bernie Taupin.</p> <p>&quot;The album <em>Elton John</em>, known as the Black Album, was having radio success in the states and the excitement in the air for his next offering was palpable.</p> <p>&quot;A couple of great guitar players, Mick Ronson and Mike Chapman had played on what was to be Reg’s new album title track, <strong>Madman Across The Water</strong>, but the result wasn’t what they’d hoped for, so Gus had asked me to come in and do what I do.</p> <p>&quot;Reg played me the piano figure he wanted done on acoustic guitar, so I said, &#x27;Something like this?&#x27;</p> <p>&quot;Cries of &#x27;That’s it!&#x27; from Gus Dudgeon, Reg, and the brilliant orchestral arranger Paul Buckmaster made me feel I’d nailed it!</p> <p>&quot;Reg’s next challenge for me was a folky uptempo piece called <strong>Holiday Inn,</strong> a song they wanted banjo on. I suggested mandolin would work better, and sticking my Scottish neck out further, came up with an intro for the song, then cemented my &#x27;audition&#x27; by adding a sitar solo which Buckmaster wrote a wonderful Indian style string part around.</p> <p>&quot;Since that day, I’ve never addressed my dear friend by the name of Reg - it’s only been Elton for me for the past 50 years.&quot;</p></div></div></div><div data-css-mh7vmj="" class="separator separator__module-default"></div><blockquote data-css-svpuxd=""><span>“<!-- -->This is a number which Bernie and I’ve just written.

Elton performed this song live, in front of a totem pole on set, on the <em>Dick Cavett Show</em> (ABC TV) on March 30, 1971. However, the footage appears to have been lost. In 2004, Tupac Shakur sampled vocal lines from <strong>Indian Sunset</strong> for his song <strong>Ghetto Gospel</strong>.
