This deluxe edition of "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road " includes four bonus tracks; three b-sides (previously released, however) and one previously unreleased acoustic mix of one of John's signature songs, "Candle in the Wind".

All tracks are available as High Resolution DSD 5.1 and 2.0 as well as a standard stereo CD layer.

The original album is split across two Hybrid SACD's, in order to make room for the extra tracks.
The deluxe edition also includes a DVD of "The Making of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road", an edited version of the TV programme 'Classic Albums' featuring interviews with the band, John himself, and various people involved with the product that went on to become John's best-selling studio album.
