The legendary career of international singer/songwriter and performer, Elton John, has spanned more than three decades. By all measures, Elton is one of the world’s most successful touring artists and one of the top-selling solo artists of all time. Elton John has sold more than 200 million records world-wide, with 29 consecutive Top 40 hits, earning 35 gold and 25 platinum albums.
These classic catalog titles from Elton John all feature new SACD surround sound mixes and totally remastered SACD and CD audio stereo programs. All were created using the original analog master tapes. These new SACDs update the classic mid-1990s reissues, including liner notes, graphics and bonus tracks.
“John has always had a jones for the mythology of the American West. Along with lyricist Bernie Taupin, he indulges his cowboy fantasies in songs such as “Burn Down the Mission.” “Amoreena” plays unforgettably in the opening scene of the Al Pacino film Dog Day Afternoon.” – www.rollingstone.com
