    For instance, I'm the only person I know who has bought the same album three times just to get different stickers on the front! (Eltons' Songs from the west coast cd) I'll take pix and stick them in my QQ profile for ya!

    You have me beat, Fred. I've never been a "stamp collector." I only bought one copy of Tori's album that came with different covers. Now, to get those extra "bogus tracks" or better fidelity, that's different. I'm on my 13th copy of Kind of Blue.

    Songs from the West Coast, was my first EJ album....great album.....SW, Live At Last. is great too !

    I recall those different coloured "Invincible" covers! what a relief I'm only a casual MJ buyer/listener.. (I still had to have the "Thriller" SACD, of course!) .. otherwise I'd had to have bought all 6 of those too!

    SFTWC (or "Songs From The Wet COAT" as an initial mock-up cover of the album had a rather funny genuine typo on - I kid you not!..) was/is a good album indeed, though I wasn't overly thrilled with it when I was invited to a playback of the album at the Townhouse Studios before it came out.. Elton's management filmed interviews with the attendees as they left the studios.. my response: "I think he should try something different!"

    it is a cool place to start with latter-day Elton.. although I hope you have all the EJ SACDs now..!? good as his stuff has been in the last 10 years, those 70's smash albums are quite something in surround...!!

    as a footnote, SFTWC was prepared for 2-channel SACD release, DSD transferred from the analogue tapes (**) by Joe Chiccarelli.. but never appeared, for some unknown reason.

    another interesting aside...
    while SFTWC was your First Elton John album Rob, it was my Forty-First..!

    (**) the SFTWC album was recorded on analogue tape at Elton's behest - he was massively into Ryan Adams at the time and was obsessed with recording all his future studio output to analogue tape as Ryan Adams did.. as he preferred the analogue "sound" to modern day digital recording.

    I have all the EJ SACD's, Adam. The surround mixes are some of the best, if not the best ? Musically i prefer the SFTWC & Peactree Road, overall.

    definitely some of the best surround mixes I've heard.

    interesting.. as nice as SFTWC & PTR are, for me they don't compare to any of his 70's stuff.. with the exception of 1979's "Victim of Drugs".. I mean "Victim of Love"! (or do I..!?).

    no, that's true.. though going off-topic's not a total crime if it keeps a thread alive and entices new people to chip in with responses to the initial discussion!

    Perhaps I can't count. And I wasn't counting Deluxe Editions twice. Here's some rare ones:







    Alternate covers:





    70's UK 8 track only cover (same tracks as above):


    I counted Love Songs twice, because the US & UK have different tracks and covers:

    Haha! You're like an abacus! QQ can always count on you!

    I didn't include any of the 4 Deluxe Editions either but I did include "The Superior Sound Of..". I didn't know it was that rare, I don't check on these things nowadays.

    I also included the 2 different "Love Songs" compilations, I have both on CD, LP & Tape

    Oh yes and I counted the "Chartbusters" set (just once, I have 4 different versions of it, the three you've attached pix of, with the Laserlight being on the European Delta imprint and a silver pressed unofficial release on Waterways Records called "I Remember When Rock Was Young").

    I don't have the "Lady Samantha" 8-track (though I have been offered it and seen it for sale, it was just one of those things I felt I had to draw the line at! I have more versions of "And The Tide Will Turn For Rebecca.." than is sane anyhow!).. nor do I have the "..And His Band Live 2009" series, as I wasn't at any of the gigs 'Concert Live' did 'Instant Live' (direct to CD) recordings of. so that explains the one I'm missing. phew!

    yep I've got that one (of course).. not that I play it much..

    just giving the new Audio Fidelity mastering of "Rock of the Westies" CD a spin at the mo.. it does sound amazing.. the best I've ever heard the album (and I've heard it every which way, believe me! from LP, to 8-track, to cassette, to DJM CD, to Rocket Remastered CD and a load of other Japanese CDs.. it's never sounded as good as the original LP until now, better possibly it really is superb).. but but but I've got this nagging feeling all the way through.. yes, it sounds great.. but Greg Penny's 5.1 surround mix would be even better...!!!!!!

    interesting news tidbit.. with some crossover info that could hint to interesting developments/changes to way Elton's catalogue is handled..

    http://www.eltonfan.net/cgi-bin/news...&tmpl=viewnews

    the 3 things that leapt out at me:

    1.) Elton has moved to Capitol,
    2.) Lucian Grainge (UMG CEO who has recently been pushing blu-ray audio) was in attendance,
    3.) Elton mentioned the move back to analogue recording and how important that is to him.

    I've concurred the following.. Capitol may be more inclined to try new things to re-ignite interest in Elton's "old stuff" (as happened when Queen moved from EMI to UMG).. the head honcho guy who's pushing blu-ray audio may just have some interest in using Elton to promote the format, knowing he still has a following.. not the first time EJ has rabbitted on about the virtues of analogue etc.. but it's reassuring to know the sound quality of Elton's new music is still of importance to him (even though his hearing must be completely screwed by now!).

    Of course, Capitol is a now subsidiary of UMG. So, although there may be new people administering his catalog(ue), he hasn't really moved at all.
