Captain & the Kid songs Product Information
Captain & the Kid album for sale by Elton John was released Sep 19, 2006 on the Interscope (USA) label. This 2006 sequel to Elton John's revered 1975 outing, CAPTAIN FANTASTIC & THE BROWN DIRT COWBOY, finds the erstwhile Reginald Dwight (the Captain) looking back on the decades between the two albums with his longtime writing partner, Bernie Taupin (the Kid). Continuing the earlier record's autobiographical themes, THE CAPTAIN & THE KID is highly charged with emotion (see "Tinderbox" for a close examination of John and Taupin's up-and-down professional relationship), and the British pop icon unveils some of his most powerfully moving and beautifully spare vocal and piano performances in years, which can be sampled on the poignant, achingly minimal single "The Bridge." This introspective atmosphere stands in sharp contrast to John's giddy turn on the Scissor Sisters' Bee-Gees-like "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'," which topped the U.K. charts shortly before THE CAPTAIN's release, and helped to prove that he remains a vital and dynamic musician more than 30 years into his incredibly accomplished career. Captain & the Kid CD music contains a single disc with 10 songs. ...See Full Description

The last effort 'Peachtree Road' was feeble, so my expectations were low. This album has all the qualities of classic Elton.
By mrasnoble (Staffordshire, UK)
It's been 31 years since Elton became Capt. Fantastic. In this follow-up to the greatest concept album of all-time, Elton and Bernie revert back to simplicity and what made them unarguably the greatest writing tandem in music history.
By Jason Glover (Mobile, Alabama, USA)
||is this 1975 or 2006?|
I think this album rates right up there with Honky Chateau and Tumbleweed Connection. The melodies are very simple yet the songs very dramatic when you read the lyrics.

||Not so Fantastic, Captain|
Actually it's More Brown Dirt Cowboy, i.e. it doesn't even touch the landmark album from the 70s. (Speaking of which, Elton hasn't put out a decent album since 1976's "Rock of the Westies" although "The One" from the early 90s had its moments.

Captain & the Kid buy CD music LET IT BE...NAKED contains a FLY ON THE WALL bonus disc including song rehearsals and conversation snatches.
Includes liner notes by Kevin Howlett and interview excerpts with The Beatles
In its original form, LET IT BE signaled the end of an era, closing the book on the Beatles, as well as literally and figuratively marking the end of the '60s. The 1970 release evolved from friction-filled sessions the Beatles intended to be an organic, bare-bones return to their roots. Instead, the endless hours of tapes were eventually handed over to Phil Spector, since neither the quickly splintering Beatles nor their longtime producer George Martin wanted to sift through the voluminous results.
LET IT BE... NAKED sets the record straight, revisiting the contentious sessions, stripping away the Spectorian orchestrations, reworking the running order, and losing all extemporaneous in-studio banter. On this version of the album, filler tracks ("Dig It," "Maggie Mae") are dropped, while juicy b-side "Don't Let Me Down" is added. The most obvious revamping is on the songs handled heavily by Spector. Removing the orchestrations from "The Long and Winding Road" and "Across the Universe" gives Paul McCartney's vocals considerably more resonance on the former, doing the same for John Lennon's voice and guitar on the latter. This alternate take on LET IT BE enhances the album's power, reclaiming the raw, unadorned quality that was meant to be its calling card from the beginning.

New World Record - Expanded Edition CD (1976) Top Seller
Captain & the Kid CD music Also available in a 3-pack with FACE THE MUSIC and DISCOVERY.
1976's A NEW WORLD RECORD is both a classic of commercial '70s pop and an archetypal ELO album. From the outer-space synths and rich orchestrations that open the album to Jeff Lynne's meticulous production and Beatlesque melodies, A NEW WORLD RECORD is magnificent ear candy. Both ambitious enough to appeal to "serious" rock fans and ultra-catchy enough to sound terrific on Top 40 radio (the plaintively gorgeous, McCartney-like "Telephone Line" and the anthemic "Livin' Thing" were well-deserved smashes), ELO was one of the few '70s bands whose appeal covered both the FM and AM spectrums. The album even resurrects "Do Ya," a classic single by Lynne's former band, the Move, in a splashy new version.
The next ELO album, 1977's elaborate double-album OUT OF THIS WORLD, was probably the band's commercial high point, but A NEW WORLD RECORD is the group's artistic high-water mark.
Their #5 smash from '76 gave ELO its first platinum record, and it's probably their most consistent creation. The hits Livin' Thing; Do Ya , and Telephone Line join Rockaria; Tight Rope ; a full six bonus cuts and more!

Last Man Standing CD (2006)
Captain & the Kid songs Around the time of his 71st birthday, rock-&-roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis unveiled LAST MAN STANDING, a celebratory outing that features a stunning cast of guest musicians, ranging from B.B. King and Little Richard to Merle Haggard and Neil Young. Among the many highlights of this album are Lewis's lively collaboration with guitarist Jimmy Page on Led Zeppelin's "Rock N' Roll," a rendition that wonderfully plays up the tune's 1950s leanings, and the Killer's honky-tonk spin on Hank Williams's "Lost Highway," which points to his often-overlooked country recordings and features Delaney Bramlett's searing six-string work. Like the latter-day recordings of his old Sun labelmate Johnny Cash, this Lewis collection points to a remarkable legacy, while also displaying his still-formidable talents, resulting in a musical testament to aging impressively well.
Personnel: Jerry Lee Lewis (vocals, piano); Keith Richards, B.B. King, Willie Nelson, Buddy Guy (vocals, guitar); Delaney Bramlett, Don Henley, George Jones, John Fogerty, Kid Rock, Little Richard, Merle Haggard, Mick Jagger, Neil Young, Ringo Starr, Rod Stewart, Toby Keith, Bruce Springsteen (vocals); Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Jimmy Rip, Kenny Lovelace, Robbie Robertson (guitar); Ron Wood (pedal steel guitar); Ivan Neville (organ); Butch Hutchinson (bass guitar); Jim Keltner (drums).
Chicago: At Carnegie Hall CDs (1971) Top Seller
||Bonus Tracks; Remastered
Captain & the Kid album for sale After issuing three consecutive studio double LPs, Chicago topped themselves with this four-album live box set. As the title suggests, At Carnegie Hall, Vols. 1-4 (Chicago IV) (1971) finds the band at the venerable New York City venue during a five-night stand (April 5-April 10) in the spring of 1971. The septet -- which includes the respective talents of Terry Kath (lead guitar/vocals), Robert Lamm (keyboards/vocals), Peter Cetera (bass/vocals), Danny Seraphine (drums), Lee Loughnane (trumpet/vocals), James Pankow (trombone), and Walter Parazaider (woodwinds/vocals) -- were at their unquestionable peak of initial popularity. Their previous three double LPs continued extended runs on the pop album chart and likewise spawned a number of hit singles. So by the time the group hit the Big Apple for these shows, they were among the hottest things happening. Chicago's set list is wholly representative of the material from Chicago Transit Authority (1969), Chicago II (1970), and Chicago III (1971) and includes several extended multi-song medleys from each. The band winds its way through muscular versions of the epic "Ballet for a Girl in Buchannon," "Travel Suite," as well as lengthy renderings of deeper cuts such as "South California Purples," "Fancy Colours," and the ten-minute-plus opening "In the Country." One of the set's most notable highlights is the politically charged "For Richard and His Friends." The lengthy and well-jammed-out cut is both groovy and propulsive. However, the acoustics at Carnegie Hall are quite frankly not (and really never have been) properly suited for heavily amplified music. While the percussion and electric guitars are clearly audible, the woodwind and brass section come off sounding extremely thin and devoid of any real timbre. This is unfortunate, as a primary component of the band is the contrasting textures between the two. Enthusiasts seeking a much more sonically accurate portrait should by whatever means necessary locate the Live in Japan 1972 two-CD set -- which also includes tracks from Chicago's fifth effort. ~ Lindsay Planer

Living with War CD (2006)
Captain & the Kid CD music Neil Young has never been one to avoid political commentary. Ever since "Ohio," his classic anthem of moral outrage about the Kent State student massacre in 1970, Young's music has pulled no punches about the injustices of American policy both foreign and domestic. 2006's LIVING WITH WAR continues that trend; in fact, the album is the most overtly political of Young's long, dazzling career.
A collection of protest songs that takes the Bush administration directly to task for their actions in Iraq and elsewhere, LIVING WITH WAR boils with outrage and aches with pathos (the grungy, midtempo opener "After the Garden" is a fine example of the latter). "Let's Impeach the President" and "Lookin' for a Leader" leave little question as to Young's opinion of George W., while the crunching, electric-guitar-heavy feel of the album underscores Young's bitter aggression. The album draws on the artist's lineage to the socially conscious activism of the 1960s, yet it feels energized, angry, contemporary, and timely, further highlighting Young's status as one of rock's longest-running and most integrity-driven heroes.
A Grammy and Juno Award-nominated studio album, the album's lyrics, titles, and conceptual style are highly critical of the policies of the George W. Bush administration.
Personnel: Neil Young (vocals); Neil Young; Darrell Brown (vocals); Rick Rosas (bass instrument); Tommy Bray (trumpet); Chad Cromwell (drums).

|Captain Fantastic & The Brown Dirt Cowboy CDs (1975)
||Bonus Tracks; Anniversary Edition; Remastered; Deluxe Edition
Captain & the Kid buy CD music This Deluxe Edition of CAPTAIN FANTASTIC & THE BROWN DIRT COWBOY includes a bonus disc of a previously unreleased concert from 1975, featuring the only performance of the entire CAPTAIN FANTASTIC album.
Sitting atop the charts in 1975, Elton John and Bernie Taupin recalled their rise to power in Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, their first explicitly conceptual effort since Tumbleweed Connection. It showcases each at the peak of his power, as John crafts supple, elastic, versatile pop and Taupin's inscrutable wordplay is evocative, even moving. Although the musical skill on display here is dazzling, as it bounces between country and hard rock within the same song, this album needs time to reveal its treasures, but once it does, it captures John and Taupin at a career pinnacle. They collapsed in hubris and excess not long afterward, but this remains a testament to the strengths of their creative partnership. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
