Elton John originally planned to record the 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' in Jamaica as an attempt to find a new relaxing atmosphere, but nothing good came of this venture. The guys got to the studio in the midst of a staff strike, and some of the equipment soon broke down so their studio time had little to do with a "good vibe". The recording budget dwindled quickly and the band, together with the producer, decided to escape to a castle in northern France where they had worked on their first two albums.

In 1976 CBS records took over distribution of DJM records, the Elton John albums were all re-issued with a new cat. no. ie Empty Sky Vinyl DJH 20203, Cassette DJH 40403, 8-Track DJH 80403. The cassettes and 8-tracks came with a revamped sleeve design and a fold-out lyric sheet. Empty Sky had the US cover design, Lady Samantha and 17-11-70 had completely different sleeve designs and released on tape only.

ELTON JOHN eponymous album is his SECOND ALBUM... Please change that mistake! It is an unbelievable mistake! Even children learn at school, the correct order of Elton's complete collection, so a 6 years old child could see the mistake!

I have a 12" version of the Thom Bell Sessions from 1979 that is not listed. The serial number is MCA-13921 and was released on the MCA label. It has the songs "Mama Can't Buy You Love", "Three Way Love Affair", and "Are You Ready For Love" in that order.

Bit ridicuolous putting Philadelphia Freedom under a separate heading (Elton John Band) theres a countless number of slightly diferent credits for various artists/records throughout Discogs which don't get listed separately.
