ELTON JOHN Levon UNI 45 in MONO

ELTON JOHN
Levon b/w Goodbye
UNI #55314 Released 1971

It’s not even one of my favorite EJ songs but it’s totally brilliant, especially this cool mono version. Maybe it's just a bit overplayed for me (to be honest, I sometimes feel the same way about “Tiny Dancer”), but whenever I hear this ode to Alvin Tostig's son, I realize it’s a master production by two incredibly great songwriters.

And check out the UNI Records sleeve--there’s that 8255 Sunset Boulevard address again!! That was one hot building back in the day.
