He Who Rides the Tiger Best known as the lyricist for most of Elton John's biggest hits, Bernie Taupin recorded his own mini-masterpiece in 1980 with the release of 'He Who Rides The Tiger'. Guests include Elton himself, David Foster, Tom Scott and Jeff Porcaro, but what is most striking is Bernie's fantastic voice. It is amazing that this album did not strike gold on the radio when it was released. It has become quite a collector's item, though, with Japanese pressings of the CD fetching well over $100 on eBay and Amazon. (BTACD001) More info
