One of their best rock tunes.  The Bitch Is Back is performed at many of Elton John’s modern concerts even up to this day.    There is a rumour that John Lennon provided a second tambourine on the track!  Can’t find absolute verification on that though…   The sixth number one song they have had in Canada.

Here’s a performance from the Million Dollar Piano concert series
