Empty Sky is the debut studio album by British singer-songwriter Elton John, released on 6 June 1969. It would not be released in the United States until January 1975 (on MCA), with different cover art, well after John's fame had been established internationally. Recorded during the winter of 1968 and spring of 1969 in a DJM Records 8-track studio, Empty Sky is the only album in the early part of Elton John's career not produced by Gus Dudgeon, instead helmed by friend and DJM staffer Steve Brown

Empty Sky is often too easily assessed with a heavy dose of hindsight. After all, what Elton and Bernie accomplished in the succeeding half-decade could not help but overshadow the 1969 album and earlier efforts, three stand-alone singles, none of which charted. Yes, the cultural echo of the 1969 LP has perhaps been reduced to a note or two in the Elton John vs. Pnau album, Good Morning To The Night (2012), and a fleeting glimpse of the back cover in a particularly heartbreaking scene in the recently-released movie ROCKETMAN

Although he had made a number of re-recordings of popular songs for a budget record label in the late '60s, Empty Sky was the first true solo album Elton John recorded after leaving Bluesology; it also marked the beginning of his long and fruitful collaboration with lyricist Bernie Taupin. Empty Sky is quite indicative of the post-Sgt. Pepper's era. With its ambitious arrangements and lyrics, it's clear that John and Taupin intended the album to be a major statement.

The title track of Elton John's debut album is about a prisoner lamenting the loss of his freedom. Written by the fledgling partnership of Elton John and Bernie Taupin, the song is quite long, at 8 minutes 28 seconds. Like the rest of the album it was recorded at the Dick James Music Studios in London and was produced by Steve Brown. Bernie Taupin talked about this song in a 1989 interview with Music Connection. 'Empty Sky' has something magical about it," he said in Rolling Stone. It came together so brilliantly, and still sounds so good. It's hard for a piano player to write a Rock & Roll song. It sounded like a Stones song. While Empty Sky was released in 1969 in the UK, it wasn't officially released in the US until 1975 with a different album cover. More songs from Elton John.

Empty Sky. Enchantment Passing Through. Fat Boys And Ugly Girls. Empty Sky (оригинал Elton John). Чистое небо (перевод Алекс из Москвы). I'm not a rat to be spat upon, Я не крыса, на которую можно наплевать, Locked up in this room. Заперев в этой комнате. Those bars that look towards the sun.

Elton John : Empty Sky. Pop Rock, United-Kingdom (1969 - DJM) Узнать больше. 1. EMPTY SKY. I'm not a rat to be spat On locked up in this room Those bars that look towards the sun at Night look towards the moon Everyday the swallows play in the clouds of love Make me wish that I had wings take me high above. And I looked high and saw the empty sky If I could only, I could only fly I'd drift with them in endless space But no man flies from this place.
