Elton John - The Covers Record
Vinylskivor (LP-skivor & singlar)
hos Vinylbutiken Stockholm
Now with this new line of 180 gram HQ vinyl albums featuring a bonus CD of the same album, you can have the "analog" and the "digital" for the price of one: no downloads, no internet connections - just the big black disc in one hand and the little shiny one in the other so you can have your favorite music on both your turntable and in your car in one shot.
Back in the days when full-length LPs were still considered a luxury item, record labels devised a way to get people to buy them: hire an unknown singer to do a full-length album's worth of cover versions of all the latest hits. People bought these albums because it was an affordable way to amass a collection of the latest hits, and cheaper than buying the original singles. In the late sixties Elton John was one of these "unknown singers" and although the cover albums did not afford him with much creative room (given that by contract he was not allowed to reinterpret any of the covers), they did pay the rent. An interesting glimpse at Elton before he became a pop star who knows if his mastery of the pop song is not in some small way owed to this early apprenticeship inside the belly of the beast.
