Released with cardboard innersleeve. Being slightly smaller than the outer jacket, it does not fit a standard 33RPM LP very well at all. The LP is cramped. This presents a likely danger of damage, either minor or worse, simply by removing and replacing this LP in the original jacket. I would bet most releases in existence have some sort of related damage as it seems almost impossible to avoid. As you can tell, I look for these dangers, feel fortunate my copy's damage is very minor.
I highly recommend adding your own paper or plastic inner sleeve to store the LP. If you wish as I do to continue to store the cardboard glossy inside as well, you may be forced to use a generic paper as opposed to certain plastics which may be either too thick or so thin they are not able to be stuffed. This is because of limited room inside the jacket.
I save paper sleeves from old thrown out LPs for reasons such as this.

Perhaps the best place to being with Elton John’s album Caribou is with the cover art, where we find everything that was wrong in the 70’s embodied and exhibited in the image of Elton, where he’s superimposed in front of a painting by the amazing Maxfield Parrish, a painter and illustrator who had a revival of sorts in the 1970’s, whose work comes alive from within, and contains a comfortable warmth, something that the music on this album did not.

Despite the two major hits from this release, “The Bitch Is Back” and “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me,” there’s not much to say as Elton follows the yellow brick road into a world that shouts total excess and gayness … and is the last album we’d see Elton on without a hat until 1992 when eventually the hair transplants took. To say this album was recorded quickly would be an understatement, where in but nine days, it was recorded and put to bed before the band headed off for a tour of Japan, with producer Gus Dudgeon calling the album “ … a piece of crap,” saying, “The sound was the worst, the songs went nowhere, the lyrics weren’t even on par with good, Elton’s singing wasn’t there, the playing was haphazard, the production was simply lousy, even the sleeve came out all wrong,” and Dudgeon would then go on to add additional backing vocals, overdubs and horns, all while Elton had not only left the building, but the country, where what he’d left for Dudgeon to clean up, is what we were presented with. And to add insult to injury, or perhaps that people during the 1970’s couldn’t tell a real blonde from a fake, the album was on the top 100 shelf for 77 weeks in 1974, and has been certified double platinum.

The album’s only saving grace, and for which I was holding it in my hands during 1974, was because of the Tower of Power horn section, feeling that those folks could make anything smoke, along with the appearance of Carl Wilson (of Beach Boys fame), whose guest appearance wasn’t even laid down in the presence of Elton John, it was a complete afterthought, as was the work by Dusty Springfield.

During the 1970’s there was a ton of money being thrown around in the music business, and yes it was a business, where with this album, Elton John had signed the most lucrative musical contract of all time, a staggering eight million dollars as royalties alone on this and his next five albums, which the man immediately put up his nose, claiming that he could no longer fly over the Swiss Alps without taste of cocaine flashing back on him. People are going to try and tell you that what Bernie Taupin and Elton John assembled here were carefully crafted pop songs, yet all and all, the only thing they created was a fashion statement of bad taste and a lack of concern for their own reputations and giving fans something of value, rather than simply taking all he could get while delivering as little as possible.

There’s not a song on Caribou that doesn’t suffer from a lack of myopic focus, a lack of purpose and context, with the album sounding as if it were conceived with the ambiguity that only drug induced over indulgence can bring. And while this is all not being made up, the album climbed higher and higher in the charts, with writers and critics pushing all of the negativity aside, where they embraced Caribou as a catchy and whole lot of FUN.

So I’ll put it to you this way, once people come face to face with the fact, and know that there’s no one in the driver’s seat, that the waitresses are standing in for the cook, that the stereo’s not only turned on, but turned up to eleven and there’s nothing coming out of the speakers, why in the world would folks have shelled out enough money to have allowed Elton John to sell over two hundred million albums all totaled. “You want the answer?” It’s because dying radio had become listener frieindly, MTV was on the verge of breaking out, and people happily swallowed spoonful after spoonful of what came across the airwaves, regardless of its quality.

Yes, I’m no fan of punk, but my finger is pointing right here and saying Caribou, like it or not, The Bitch spawned punk.
