8CD Box Set

The ultimate exploration into Elton John’s extensive back catalogue, ‘Jewel Box’ encompasses a selection of deep cuts chosen by Elton himself; rarities from the earliest stage of his and Bernie Taupin’s musical journey; B-sides spanning 30 years, and songs discussed in Elton’s best-selling, critically acclaimed 2019 memoir, ‘Me’. The eight discs come in a beautiful hardcover book, enclosed in an outer slipcase. Each section contains extensive notes and, for ‘Deep Cuts’, there is track-by- track commentary by Elton. The set contains an unprecedented number of previously unheard, unreleased tracks from 1967-1969, the years that cemented the foundations of the iconic John- Taupin partnership: ‘Jewel Box’ truly is a treasure trove for Elton John fans.

Disc Guide

Discs 1 & 2: Deep Cuts – A selection of personal favourites, curated by Elton. The box set book includes a track by track written commentary by Elton John with Alexis Petridis.

Discs 3, 4 and 5: Rarities 1965 -1971 – Elton’s much sought-after 1960s and early 1970s demos and music that cemented the foundations of the iconic John-Taupin writing partnership. The compelling, previously unreleased, missing piece in his illustrious story. Daryl Easlea narrates this fascinating story with contributions from those who were there at the time.

Discs 6 &7: B Sides 1976-2005 – Flipsides, never before compiled together. Those B-Side gems that are now given another chance to sparkle – many never previously available digitally.

Disc 8: And This Is Me . . . – To coincide with the release of the updated paperback edition of Me, the final collection celebrates the songs mentioned by name by Elton in his acclaimed book, closing Jewel Box with the 2020 Academy Award winning (I’m Gonna) Love Me Again.
