Offered for sale is a still sealed limited edition U.S. double picture disc set of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road by Elton John.
These sets were sold in the U.S exclusively through Walmart stores.
About this copy: This copy of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is a 2019 pressing on the Universal UMC label. While this is technically a U.S. issue, the discs were pressed in the Czech Republic and there is a sticker indicating this on the back cover.
As the album is still sealed, the records are presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is fully intact with no rips, tears, or holes. There is a hype sticker on the wrap that says, “Exclusive Picture Disc.”
A nice copy of a classic LP, and the first time this album has been issued as a picture disc.
Background: Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, originally released in 1973, was a huge success, topping the album charts in both the U.S. and the UK, helped by the success of four singles – “Bennie and the Jets,” “Saturday Night’s All Right for Fighting,” “Candle in the Wind,” and the title cut, “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.”
It was designed to be a blockbuster and it was. Prior to Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Elton John had hits — his second album, Elton John, went Top 10 in the U.S. and U.K., and he had smash singles in “Crocodile Rock” and “Daniel” — but this 1973 album was a statement of purpose spilling over two LPs, which was all the better to showcase every element of John’s spangled personality. … This touched on everything John did before, and suggested ways he’d move in the near-future, and that sprawl is always messy but usually delightful, a testament to Elton’s ’70s power as a star and a musician.
In the late 1970s, collectors were showing a lot of interest in picture discs and colored vinyl, so record companies around the world issued a number of popular titles in both formats as limited edition pressings. Among them was Elton John’s 1973 LP, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, which was issued in the UK as a limited edition on yellow vinyl.
