Win a Super Deluxe Edition of Elton John’s ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’
On March 25, Elton John will release a Super Deluxe Edition of his legendary double album ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.’ Ultimate Classic Rock has teamed up with Universal to give one lucky winner a copy of this set.
Released in 1973, ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ is one of John’s most acclaimed and beloved records. It includes the classic radio staples ‘Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding,’ ‘Candle in the Wind,’ ‘Bennie and the Jets,’ ‘Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting’ and the wistful title track. Our retrospective on the album says that it “finds an artist at the top of his talents, in a moment when the world was at his feet” and is “the quintessential Elton album.”
The Super Deluxe Edition contains the remastered double-album, a 1973 concert from the Hammersmith Odeon, a DVD of the documentary ‘Elton John and Bernie Taupin Say Goodbye To Norma Jean and Other Things’ and 100-page hardcover book with photos, memorabilia and an interview with John and lyricist Bernie Taupin. There is also a tribute CD featuring nine modern acts — including Ed Sheeran, Fall Out Boy and the Zac Brown Band — covering songs from the album. You can pre-order the Super Deluxe Edition at Amazon and buy the digital versions over at iTunes.
