["DJM CD 4" followed by "810 062-2" on the spine.

[12-page booklet has all song lyrics and 'The Superior Sound of Elton John' explanation on page two:]

"In an effort to keep with the new technology in
recorded sound, Gus Dudgeon has recently spent
five weeks in D.J.M. Recording Studios remixing a
large portion of Elton John's back catalogue from the
original multi-tracks into the new Digital Stereo
format.

He has tried to keep the mixes identical to the
originals but, with the benefit of all the latest
advanced technological equipment, the quality of
sound has moved this timeless music into a new
dimension of listening enjoyment."
