When "Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting)
" was released on June 29, 1973 (from the forthcoming Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
album), it included two previously unreleased tracks from an earlier session on the B-side. Both were written by the then-established team of John/Taupin. The first, "Jack Rabbit", was undoubtedly inspired by country boy Bernie's upbringing. Born on a farm near Sleaford, Lincolnshire, but for his serendipitous partnership with Elton, he might have ended up managing a chicken farm.
