Hey Andy, yesterday Elton would have been 70!!!

@Dumbzo
...probably an hommage to Gary Burton? It sounds somehow reminiscent to the Jazz/Country fusion style that Burton developed in his quartet with Larry Coryell in the 60s...

Many thanks. Re "going for a Burton" - World War 2 Royal Air Force slang for "get killed", but no idea what relevance that has to the music.

'Going for a burton' refers to the beer brewed in the English Midlands town of Burton-upon-Trent, famous for its breweries.
It was indeed used by the RAF during WW2, pilots who crashed, especially those who crashed into the sea, that is, 'in the drink', were said to have 'gone for a burton'. But it can also mean being AWOL, or sloping off work for pleasure.
Oh and Thanks for the music.

Thanks Andy, was sure I had this, turns out I was wrong! Maybe I used to have it, but it went for a Burton.
