Background: Elton John was Elton John’s second album, but his first to be released in the United States. On the strength of “Take Me to the Pilot,” “Border Song,” and “Your Song,” the album reached #4 on the American charts and #5 in Britain.
In Japan, first pressings of the album were issued on red “Everclean” vinyl, which was created for the purpose of having lower static electricity and thus attracting less dust than regular black vinyl pressings. Only the first issues were pressed on red vinyl; all later pressings were black. Elton John is one of four titles that were released commercially in Japan on red vinyl.
