Elton John - Hammersmith Odeon 1973

This is Elton John live in concert at West London's Hammersmith Odeon back on the 22nd December 1973. Despite suffering from a heavy cold, Elton John clearly wanted to give this concert his best effort, the results are self evident, both the band and Elton were clearly up for the gig, possibly spurred on by national coverage on BBC radio in the UK. Looking at the set list not far from four decades on, I remain surprised at the amount of career defining material he had already produced at this stage. As boots go this is better quality, both in terms of audio and performance than a lot of officially released live albums from the early 1970's. Source: PRE-FM from BBC transcription reels. Sound Quality: Very good stereo mp3@192kbps. Genre: Rock and contemporary pop. Set: Full Set (almost). Set List: CD 1: 01 - Intro - Funeral For A Friend - Love Lies Bleeding 02 - Candle In The Wind 03 - Hercules 04 - Rocket Man 05 - Bennie And The Jets 06 - Daniel 07 -
