Elton John was THE album that was the spark that launched Eltons career, spawning the evergreen "Your Song," which is perhaps still his most loved hit today - the album is still timeless and sounds, in this newly re-mastered form, as emotive and original as ever. Collectively, the two discs on this beautifully compiled DELUXE EDITION paint as complete a picture and you are likely to get of this classic album from inception to completion Disc Two is expanded with 20 tracks, including 15 previously unreleased tracks sourced from various archives and live BBC Sessions and three unreleased demo tracks ("Thank You Mama," "All the Way Down to El Paso" and "I'm Going Home"). Includes many piano demos, giving a fascinating insight into how the songs developed, none more so than the demo of "The Greatest Discovery" Features a 28-page booklet with extensive new sleeve notes, period photos and lyrics.
