Album artwork for Rock Of The Westies by Elton John

Rock of the Westies represented hard-core kick-ass rock ‘n’ roll at its finest. John lets his hair hang down here and the result is one of the best rock masterpieces in history. John’s previous works were comprised mostly of ballads with a few three-chord rock songs sprinkled in for balance.

Rock of the Westies was a reversal of sorts. It rocks from the outset and somewhat echoes some early works from the Rolling Stones. Songs like “Medley,” Yell Help,” Wednesday Night, Ugly,” “Grow Some Funk of Your Own,” “Hard Luck Story” and “Dan Dare (Pilot of the Future)” are creative rockers.
