ELTON AT 50

Fifty years ago today, Elton John made his U.S. debut at the Troubadour, which led L.A. Times critic Robert Hilburn to note “he’s going to be one of rock’s biggest and most important stars.” Universal is marking the occasion with the announcement of a 50th anniversary edition of his debut album.

A limited edition Record Store Day exclusive gatefold two-LP version of Elton John will be available on 8/29.  Pressed on transparent purple vinyl, the first disc features the 2016 remaster of the original album, while the second contains a selection of bonus tracks off the 2008 CD Deluxe Edition—never released on vinyl—as well as two previously unreleased demos of “Border Song” and “Bad Side Of The Moon.” On 10/30,  the original Elton John album will be released as a single LP.

The album includes his breakthrough single “Your Song” as well as “Take Me To The Pilot,” “Sixty Years On” and “Border Song.”
