Elton John - Diving Board 2LP -ltd-
The Diving Board” is Elton John’s 30th solo album and the second of his studio
releases since 1979’s Victim of Love without any of his regular band members.
The album was written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin and produced in Los Angeles
by The Union producer T-Bone Burnett. Burnett suggested that John return to
the piano, bass and drums format of his very early years and the result, John says,
is “the most exciting solo record I’ve done in a long, long time.” The Diving Board
was written in two days.
