Album Description
Sleeping with the Past is the 22nd studio album by British singer/songwriter Elton John, released on 29 August 1989. It is his best-selling album in Denmark (where it was recorded for tax purposes) and is dedicated to his longtime writing partner Bernie Taupin. The album featured his first solo #1 single, "Sacrifice", in his home country of the UK, which helped the album also hit #1 there. John and Taupin meant for the songs to reflect the style of 1960's R&B icons such as Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding and Sam Cooke, whom they admired. It also became his first platinum album in the UK since 1983's Too Low for Zero, and was also certified Platinum in the U.S. by the RIAA. Guy Babylon made his debut on this album and would continue to play keyboards with John for the next 20 years. Fred Mandel left the band shortly after. John went into rehabilitation in 1990.
