The ultimate greatest hits compilation from the legendary Elton John.
‘Diamonds’ coincides with the 50th anniversary of Elton’s phenomenal songwriting partnership with Bernie Taupin. Meeting in 1967 through a music magazine advert seeking songwriters, Elton and Bernie went on to become one of the most enduring songwriting duos of all time, achieving a sustained level of success that puts them head and shoulders above the competition. Catapulted into the limelight as a songwriting force in 1971 with ‘Your Song’, the duo never stood still creatively, defining an era with their run of back-to-back classic 1970’s albums. While ‘Candle In The Wind’ topped the charts in three different decades and 2013’s critically acclaimed ‘The Diving Board’ was a top three hit in the UK, their legacy is one that is unrivalled in terms of longevity, creativity and commercial success.
The 2CD version of ‘Diamonds’ contains 34 songs, a 10-page booklet with contemporary illustrations of iconic Elton looks, while the 2LP version is pressed onto heavy-duty 180 gram vinyl and contains gatefold artwork. Housed in an attractive lidded box, the 3CD limited edition boxset version of ‘Diamonds’ also contains a 72-page hardback book containing annotations for the stories behind each track plus a set of five postcards of illustrations of Elton. As well as a collection of some of the best loved songs of all time, all illustrations in these three formats are by contemporary artist Richard Kilroy.
A new 3CD version of Elton John's Diamonds, the Greatest Hits package celebrating 50 years of Elton John and Bernie Taupin’s sensational songwriting partnership. 51-tracks, slipcase with new colour cover, containing a triple jewel case + 10 page roll-fold booklet. This new format will align with the release of the highly anticipated film, Rocketman, the music and magic of Elton John’s incredible life brought to the big screen.
