ELTON JOHN - DON'T SHOOT ME I'M ONLY THE PIANO PLAYER, 1972. Original DJM promo poster, 30"x20". Design by Michael Ross. The album was released in early 1973, but this superb poster is dated 1972 and may conceivably feature the originally intended cover art. The signature cannot so far be deciphered. Vintage Elton John posters from the classic early albums are very scarce.
