Elton John Releases Career-Spanning Box Set ‘Elton: Jewel Box’ - Mastered by Abbey Road's Sean Magee

Mastered at Abbey Road by Sean Magee, Elton John delves deep into his archive for a new career-defining boxset entitled Jewel Box, which features an astonishing amount of rarities, deep cuts and B-sides.

This collection contains 148 songs spanning 1965 to 2019, of which 60 are previously unreleased. Presented on 8CD, 4LP, 3LP, 2LP vinyl and on digital and streaming formats, the collection will be housed in a hardback book and will be accompanied by extensive notes including track-by-track commentary by Elton.

 
Every track was mastered at Abbey Road Studios by Grammy-winning mastering engineer Sean Magee, with Jewel Box described as “the ultimate treasure trove for Elton John fans." Elton has also shared the previously unreleased track Sing Me No Sad Songs which was conceived in 1969.
 
 
Elton says: "To delve back through every period of my career in such detail for Jewel Box has been an absolute pleasure. Hearing these long lost tracks again, I find it hard to comprehend just how prolific Bernie Taupin and I were during the early days.

The songs just poured out of us and the band were just unbelievable in the studio. I always want to push forward with everything I do and look to the future, but having time during lockdown to take stock and pull these moments from my memory from each era has been a joy.

As a devout record collector myself, this project has really excited me and I couldn’t be happier with the level of craft involved in such a carefully curated, lovingly constructed box set. I’m sure my fans will enjoy it as much as I have.”
 
The final disc in the collection is titled And This Is Me, which coincides with the release of the paperback edition of Elton’s autobiography Me. It’ll feature tracks mentioned by Elton in the book alongside the Oscar-winning duet with Rocketman star Taron Egerton, (I’m Gonna) Love Me Again.
