Start of quite an amazing relationship
5 November 2012 | by ebiros2See all my reviews

Two rooms of course refers to the way music making partnership between Bernie Taupin and Elton John works. They never worked in one room to make music together.

The story is about how Ray Williams of Liberty Records had an idea to connect Elton John who was looking for a lyricist, to Bernie Taupin who was looking for a song writer, and what ensued after that.

In Elton's own words, "...start of quite an amazing relationship that's lasted 20 years, and never having written a song in a same room together."

The program is unique in that Bernie Taupin, Elton John, and people surrounding them has equal part in describing the early stages of their partnership. They got $275 from Dick James to go to Los Angeles, and play at the Trubador that launched their career.

This is an important documentary because it's described by the principles themselves, and there's no other documentary in existence that describes the music of Elton John, and Bernie Taupin quite in this manner.
