Listened to this one last night...     Elton John: Honky Chateau SACD   Everything I said about Goodbye Yellow Brick Road goes double for this album. This one is even better sounding. The reason is that the production is more straightforward... not as much doubling and tripling of vocals. Basic arrangements focusing on the piano and rhythm section.

Too many audiophiles who wander into our forum stick to their predetermined conclusions like glue and grab at straws for justifications of their misconceptions, instead of trying to figure out how sound...
 P.T. Barnum had a quote that related to that I think....
