Elton John will release a massive eight-disc box set teeming with rarities and unreleased tracks. Elton: Jewel Box, which will be released on November 13th, includes a whopping 148 songs spanning Elton's entire career — with three discs dedicated to rarities from 1965 to 1971. The collection will be available on eight-CD's, four-LP's, three-LP's, and two-LP's. As a teaser to the set, Elton has released a lyric-video for the previously unreleased 1969 track, “Sing Me No Sad Songs.”
Jewel Box is broken up into four sections: “Deep Cuts,” “Rarities,” “B-Sides 1976-2005,” and “This Is Me. . ,”. which features songs that were specifically name-checked into Elton's recent memoir, Me, and serving as a soundtrack to the book.
Jewel Box comes in a hardcover book “with the discs housed in the back, all wrapped in an outer slipcase. Each section comes accompanied with extensive notes including a track-by-track commentary by Elton for 'Deep Cuts.'”
