RocketLight:

I am also a (rare) big fan of THE BIG PICTURE so it will be a guaranteed purchase for me as well.

Curious to hear from other site-posters what recent and future vinyl that you have or will purchase from these 2017 vinyl re-releases.

Some of these re-releases were never available on vinyl until now...

So far I've bought all of Elton's re-released vinyl and I will 100% buy the rest of them.

HONKY CHATEAU on new 180 gram vinyl 2017 release:

Great to kick back and listen carefully to this entire album with repeated listens.

Sound quality; very faithful remastering without any noticeable differences to the original 1972 pressing. Clear and quiet vinyl.

What I enjoyed most was listening to Nigel & Dee playing and Elton's voice on this record. This trio knew how to play together! This was their first full album together (new studio recording) and listening to them play was a real pleasure. Nigel's playing was full of energetic and interesting fills without being noisy or distracting. Dee's bass was so interesting and original. Listening to the ease which EJ's vocals moved up and down was amazing. I miss that voice and that falsetto. It reminds me how much Elton's voice was really unmatched. The album is also Davey's first full album with EJ and there are a few songs which show what he was soon to become.

A really understatedly very good record - solid throughout. Who would have thought to include electric violin and tap dancing on a pop record! Gus was a master at production in those days.

Packaging; almost faithful to the original. It does open up like a double-album similar to the original. The cover does not have the photo added to the cover but is simply printed on the cover. The back does not have that "latch" which was like an inserted diary lock. Otherwise, the information, photos, and double-album style packaging are completely faithful to the original album.

CARIBOU and DON'T SHOOT ME I'M ONLY THE PIANO PLAYER:

Both of these albums are scheduled for a late July release on 180 gram vinyl and eltonjohn.com has added an interesting fact-feature on both records:

Enjoy!

THE BIG PICTURE and ROCK OF THE WESTIES...

These two albums are the August releases on 180 gram vinyl with remastering applied. August 25th is the USA release date.

The good thing about THE BIG PICTURE is that it is apparently its first appearance on vinyl! It is a guaranteed buy for me as I still really like this album.

BLUE MOVES and EMPTY SKY are the follow up albums slated for a September release.

I didn't purchase CARIBOU or DON'T SHOOT ME I'M ONLY THE PIANO PLAYER on the new vinyl so I am unable to comment on the 180 gram vinyl quality. Did anyone one this site buy these recently released vinyl versions?
