Tuesday 12:30am ET: Feature LP – Elton John – Victim Of Love (1979)

Victim of Love, released October 13, 1979, is the thirteenth studio album release for Elton John. It is a disco album, released shortly after the peak of disco’s popularity. It was not critically or commercially well-received, and is Elton John’s third lowest charting album to date in the US, after 1986’s Leather Jackets and 1985’s Ice on Fire.

It also peaked at No. 11 on the Canadian Adult Contemporary chart. In addition, all the tracks on the album reached No. 55 on the US Billboard Disco Top 100 chart.
