A former student of the Royal Academy of Music in London, England, the man born Reginald Kenneth Dwight in 1947 left school and immediately began his path in the music industry.

Another remaster and another addition to Universal's very successful "Deluxe Edition" series,some of which have been excellent value. We have already seen "Captain Fantastic" and "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" given the deluxe treatment. According to the expanded essay by John Tobler contained within the booklet of this double cd reissue of one of Sir Elton's career defining early 70's albums for DJM records,it has been released (along with Tumbleweed Connection Deluxe Edition) to commemerate 40 years of recording. And what a wealth of material it contains. It's not so much how good the album sounds,it's all the extra material contained on the second disc,most of which is previously unreleased,that make these new deluxe editions a must have for any fan of Mr.John.

It's not the first remaster of course. Almost all his classic 70's back catalogue was first given a clean up in 1995 by the late Gus Dudgeon,Elton's longtime producer and collaborator. The remainder of the 70's albums and most of the 80's and 90's were finished by 2003. And for those of us who were quick enough and have the relevant hardware to snap them up,six of his classic 70's albums were reissued in Hybrid SACD 5.1 by Universal America's excellent "Chronicles" series a few years back. If you have an SACD player,they are pretty nice sounding surround remixes (track down the deluxe edition of "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road:Remastered SACD/+DVD" and you'll understand what I'm talking about).

So onto the 2008 clean up.The albums themselves sound like they were recorded yesterday,very nice indeed.

Reginald Dwight's 2nd album proper was recorded in a week in January 1970 at Trident Studios in London and then released in the spring of 1970. It included the monster hit "Your Song" and after years of soul-destroying session work and an underachieving debut album "Empty Sky" - both the single and the self-titled album finally kick-started Elton John's extraordinary career which is still strong nearly 45 years after the event. This 2 June 2008 DELUXE EDITION is a fully upgraded 2CD version of that forgotten 2nd album and along with the DELUXE EDITION of "Tumbleweed Connection" (the album that followed it - see my separate review) - these two beauties are in my books already up there as reissues of the year. Here are the classily photographed side-profile details...

Format: Audio CD
YES!!! The bonus cd is worth the money! the demos are revelatory in every way, you can hear Elton John still a bit shy behind his piano, with a voice waiting to be spread across the world. I will concentrate the review on the bonus tracks, for reviews on the album there are many that you can read, but man, it is a FANTASTIC ALBUM!
The bonus cd starts with a 'Your song' piano only demo which is a beauty in itself, in this album you'll also be able to hear Elton singing along some of the orchestral movements of the final version of the 'Greatest Discovery'. These piano only demo songs just inspire me to write an Indie Movie of true characters and go along with it, they are so truthful, there's no S..t here, and anyone who appreciates music will just love them.

Elton's talent is evident in every song, the melodies are just brilliant, I never get tired of these songs it has so many GREAT moments even forgeting about 'Your Song' which is the big hit. 'Sixty Years On' in its piano version will make you cry... is such a brilliant underrated song.

Seriously these demos are worth the money of this reissue. 'Rock n' Roll Madonna' sounds amazing, with a great groove, although in this one I'd say the band version is superior, which doesn't mean this one is not good though. B-Sides and rarities were already included in the previous reissue (Grey Seal, Bad Side of the of the Moon and Rock n' Roll Madonna) is nice to see they are also included here along with the rest of the goodies into a single cd.

And finally you get three songs from a BBC sessions (Border Song, Your Song and Take me to the pilot) and again they sound naked and truthful... I have many Elton John live albums but the innocence of these recordings are unique.

Let the music play!
