2021 EU limited edition 12-track vinyl LP, exclusively released for Record Store Day 2021. On EMI / UMC label. Barcode: 0602435557878.
After the rapturous reception for Jewel Box, Rocket/UMC/EMI are honoured to announce a strictly limited one-off bringing together of Elton John’s fabled Regimental Sgt Zippo album that was slated for release in 1968, but ultimately shelved.
For one day only, we enter a parallel universe where this, not Empty Sky, would have been Elton John’s debut album.
Recorded at Dick James Studios in Central London between late 1967 and Spring 1968, six of the 12 songs were released on Jewel Box, but five are here in their finished versions for the first time and a debut release for You’ll Be Sorry To See Me Go.
Overseen with customary forensic attention to details by Elton’s archive team, RSZ is an absolute feast for fans of Elton John and Bernie Taupin.
