Description

Good Morning To The Night – an album that cannot be described as simply a “remixing” of Elton’s material. It is more of a re-awakening. Using hundreds of elements from dozens of songs, the eight tracks are continual mash-ups that quickly create their own identity while still honoring the source material… most of it culled from deep within the more obscure corners of Elton’s catalogue.

For example, the track Black Icy Stare begins with a backing vocal line from the 40-second mark of a 1974 B-side, Cold Highway, before hooking into the horn line from Caribou‘s You’re So Static. As the beat pushes forward, a Lesley guitar line out of …Static chases an organ, taken from …Highway‘s chorus, as the song slides square into the rhythm section and lead vocal from the chorus to Solar Prestige A Gammon. The fact that all of these songs happen to come from the same album sessions should not lead the listener to think that the same consideration was taken throughout the rest of the Good Morning To The Night – it is the only song to be so constructed.
