|Elton John Diamonds Limited Gatefold 180gram Heavyweight Vinyl 2LP Set
Kicking off with the ever-stunning ‘Your Song’, this definitive collection brings together all the landmark hits of one of the greatest song books of all time, including ‘Tiny Dancer’, ‘Rocket Man’, ‘Candle In The Wind’, ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’, ‘Sacrifice’, ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight?’. Making its first appearance on an Elton hits collection, ‘Diamonds’ also features Elton’s duet with George Michael on the classic ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’.
‘Diamonds’ coincides with the 50th anniversary of Elton’s phenomenal songwriting partnership with Bernie Taupin. Meeting in 1967 through a music magazine advert seeking songwriters, Elton and Bernie went on to become one of the most enduring songwriting duos of all time, achieving a sustained level of success that puts them head and shoulders above the competition. Catapulted into the limelight as a songwriting force in 1971 with ‘Your Song’, the duo never stood still creatively, defining an era with their run of back-to-back classic 1970’s albums. While ‘Candle In The Wind’ topped the charts in three different decades and 2013’s critically acclaimed ‘The Diving Board’ was a top three hit in the UK, their legacy is one that is unrivalled in terms of longevity, creativity and commercial success.
The 2LP version is pressed onto heavy-duty 180 gram vinyl and contains gatefold artwork.
