Hi Lizardson, because you are so kind, I have one question for you.
In the web, some times ago, I found the e-book of Borderline produsctions (without pics, but with all the data).
I lost it in my bookmark. Do you know about? Can you help me to find that links?
Thank u in advance.
By the way, if you like, take a look to my old web site celononcelo.com
All the best.

i just saw this video with Elton John in it. I guess that it’s about Dave Stewart’s (from the Eurythmics) first group in the 70s that never released their album back then, and now there’s a big VH1 special on them tonight @ 6.

anyone else heard about this?

That's amazing!

I love Nick Drake and I've recently started listening to some earlyish Elton John: Madman, Friends, Westies, stuff off rare masters etc and was thrilled when I found this.

Thanks for the up!

Hi,
Thanks for these amazing demos. Curious, though, why the Linda Peters song 'Pied Piper' is missing from the download. It's a shame!

Thanks for sharing this treasure. In a interview I made to Linda Thompson, 11 years ago, she told me than she was very drunken in this session and did not remember anything.

Cheers!!!

When this was reposted on the Talkawhile board, it drew a response from Simon Nicol (no less) saying that he did not take part in this session and, so far as he can remember, has never made music with Elton:
