    This is a sweet set, live on WBAI FM radio in 1971. Anderson Theater, NYC

    Is it true his Rocket Man inspired Elton John's song, or is that some kind of myth.
    RIP anyway.

    Bernie Taupin said he "stole" the title and idea from Tom, but as usual, Tom never saw any residuals.

    This has some of the best of Tom: Live Pearls...love LOVE LOVE it.
    I often listen to this before the studio LP releases....the gaps can be annoying so skip them. I have it without the strange gaps. PM me....

    Oh and
    Oh yeah, Tom's Rocket Man is far more emotional and beautiful....IMHO.

    Sorry to hear this. I didn't know a ton of his music but what I have heard could be very affecting. RIP.
