ELTON: Out of the Box


The limited-edition vinyl box set Elton John released last October in conjunction with luxury goods maker Burberry is coming undone.

The six albums in the box — Elton John11-17-70, Madman Across the Water, Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, Too Low for Zero and Songs From the West Coast — are all remastered on 180-gram vinyl and are now available individually. At the time of the box set’s release, Elton said, “Choosing these six wasn’t easy; however, I think they are a very good representation of my catalog between 1970 and 2001.”

They are all available now in the EltonJohn.com shop.

11-17-70, the live album he recorded on that date in New York, will also be released in an expanded form next week for Record Store Day.
