In the early history of Elton John, the soundtrack that he and Bernie Taupin wrote for the little-remembered film Friends holds an unusual place. When its title track appeared early in 1971, Elton had finally just made his singles chart breakthrough on either side of the Atlantic with ‘Your Song. There was a similar contrast in the fortunes of the soundtrack album, which missed the British bestsellers, but climbed to No. 36 in the US, had a 19-week chart run and was soon certified gold. The film was directed by London-born Lewis Gilbert, who had made one James Bond film at this point, You Only Live Twice, and would direct two more, The Spy Who Loved Me in 1977 and Moonraker two years later.
