Deluxe Anthology Box Set featuring 34 Ultimate Hits, 17 Personal Favorites, 5 Postcards & 72-Page Hardback Book!

Elton John releases the "ultimate" hits anthology Diamonds to coincide with the 50th anniversary of his songwriting partnership with Bernie Taupin. The retrospective covers all of the landmark songs from Elton's peerless career, starting with his early breakthrough "Your Song" and embracing "Rocket Man," "Candle In The Wind," "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word," "Sacrifice," "Are You Ready For Love?" and the duets "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" with Kiki Dee and "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me" with George Michael.

This deluxe 3CD box set edition contains 34 tracks over two discs, plus 17 bonus tracks of personal favorites curated by Elton himself including covers of "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" and "Pinball Wizard" as well as "Kiss The Bride," "The One" ad collaborations with Luciano Pavarotti ("Live Like Horses"), LeAnn Rimes ("Written In The Stars") and Pnau's "Good Morning To The Night" mix. It comes complete with a set of 5 postcard illustrations of Elton as well as exclusive annotations for each track and specially chosen 7" or CD-single picture sleeve graphics from various territories around the world in a 72 page hardback book.

Says Elton of his partnership with Bernie: "We are at 50 years, and our relationship is healthier than it's ever been. There have been times in our relationship when we've written with other people, but it still didn't stop the love. I love Bernie more than I've ever done and I think he probably feels the same way about me, because we've both led separate lives; we both write in separate rooms. We have an amazing respect and love for each other that's only grown."

Adds Taupin: "We still get a kick out of what we do; it's what we do. When we come together and write something, it still has that magical quality to it. It doesn't get any better than that. That feeling hasn't aged."
