Following a stellar run of smash albums and singles throughout the early-‘70s, Elton John turned in 1977 to the warm sounds of soul music for his next step. Thom Bell was already a name producer for the ‘Philly Sound’ and for his work with some of the era’s biggest R&B acts like The Stylistics and the Detroit Spinners. The fruits of their collaboration would not find an official release until 1979 by which time Elton’s ever-restless muse had moved on but the sessions were not destined to languish in obscurity. By the late-‘90s copies of the original 1979 12” were changing hands for serious money among house heads and in 2003 Ashley Beedle’s spirited remix of the lead track ‘Are You Ready For Love’ gave Elton a much-deserved Number 1 single. For Record Store Day 2016 they’re once again available in all their full-length glory on this 2-track vinyl release.
