180g Vinyl Pressing Remastered by Bob Ludwig
Rumor has it that at one point during the '70s Elton John's record sales accounted for 2% of all records sold worldwide. Success on that scale has rarely ever been topped and in that tumultuous decade Elton was a megastar. He released a staggering 14 albums, 10 of which spent time in the UK Top 10 and three of those at No. 1. And on top of that he had 17 Top 20 singles. Elton's tenth studio album, Rock of the Westies, served as his second consecutive effort of 1975 alone to enter the Billboard 200 Chart at No. 1 following Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy. Home to the No. 1 single "Island Girl" and the double A-side single "Grow Some Funk Of Your Own" b/w "I Feel Like A Bullet (In The Gun Of Robert Ford)" which topped out at No. 14, Rock of the Westies wonderfully balances hard-hitting rockers with soul-stirring ballads, two unequivocal Elton John hallmarks. Now available on 180g vinyl - remastered by Grammy Award winning mastering engineer, Bob Ludwig - in celebration of Elton John's 50th anniversary in the music business.
