2LP - 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Black Vinyl with nine session demos and a booklet featuring an essay and images etc.
Elton John’s 1972 album Honky Château is reissued for its (belated) 50th anniversary. The album features songs such as the transatlantic top 10 single ‘Rocket Man’, ‘Honky Cat’ and ‘Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters’ and was very much Elton’s step into global superstardom. Recorded at the now legendary Château d’HérouvilleIt (25 miles north-west of Paris) it was originally released in May 1972, and kicked off a stream of classic albums including 1973’s Don’t Shoot Me I’m Only The Piano Player and Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.
