It’s live album week at Cosmic America, so we delve into an artifact from the early stages of Elton John’s career. Recorded in a New York City studio, broadcast on radio, and then widely bootlegged, 11-17-70 (or 17-11-70 if you’re British or annoying) is an interesting look into an Elton John that was still focused on 50’s era rock and roll as his primary artistic motif. Not a lot of songs, but certainly a lot of energy. You can check out the album on iTunes, or you can listen to the unedited radio broadcast here.
