Rocket Man (A Tribute To Elton John) Hugo Montenegro
A popular instrumentalist and film composer in the 1960s, Hugo Montenegro released an instrumental tribute album to Elton John in 1975 called "Rocket Man." Here's the title track, introduced by an original piece called "Blastoff."
The ARP synthesizer was played by Hugo's son John Montenegro. Larry Carlton played the guitar.
This recording is taken from the original vinyl (a few scratches!), which you can see in the photos.
