Elton John‘s Goodbye Yellow Brick Road will be receiving the Super Deluxe Edition box set treatment this spring.
The 1973 classic was originally expected to be issued in Autumn 2013 (the 40th anniversary year) but was pushed back to avoid clashing with John’s new album The Diving Board.
We can reveal that amongst the contents the new box will be an album of cover versions of tracks from GBYBR and a live 1973 concert. There will also be a High Fidelity Pure Audio edition (hopefully with 5.1) which will be available, although at this stage it’s unclear if this will be separate and/or in the box set.
Expect this set late March / early April 2014.
