With Elton's latest movie "Rocket Man" receiving reviews like "ROCKETMAN is an epic musical fantasy about the incredible human story of Elton John's breakthrough years". This 45 played a big role in Elton's early development, watch Elton early vinyl releases "rocket" in value in the coming months.

Here is a magnificent copy of Elton 1969 solo recording of his own composition

A fine clean example of Elton's 2nd UK single using his new found name, over 2 years before he hit the big time with "Crocodile Rock" on DJM; Elton and Bernie Tauplin, give notice of what was about to unfold as they write two meaningful songs with classy lyrics and easy delivery. In a style the world grew to adore, as Dick James Music's platform made Elton a worldwide superstar.

To acquire any of his early recordings in tip-top condition, 50 years down the line, is the huge challenge for all dedicated Rock collectors.

This copy is better than we've ever encountered over the decades, and would be hard to eclipse.

Condition Report

two clean 3 prong die cut centre labels. Tight small centre-hole suggesting little of no turntable activity, that the lack of faint spindle trails and the vinyl confirms. Full gloss, with just a few of the merest occasional sleeve contact hairline when angled in in the light. A future upgrade would be more than optimistic and totally unnecessary. A stunning copy!
