Hey, Rich Dale here. Greatest Hits albums are one thing, but it’s finally time for Sir Elton to release a giant box set. Later this year, he’s releasing a career-spanning box set.
And it will definitely not be “the hits”. Instead, the eight-disc Elton: Jewel Box (yeah, I said eight) will focus on deep cuts, b-sides, early recordings, and 60 previously unreleased tracks!
Elton himself had a hand in curating the Jewel Box, and personally I wouldn’t have it any other way. He said “having time during lockdown to take stock and pull these moments from my memory from each era has been a joy.”
I couldn’t find a track listing, but he’s had some great b-sides through the years. I was always one to flip over my 45’s, and heard great songs like “Young Man’s Blues” and “Skyline Pigeon”.
The set is scheduled to be out Nov. 13th.
