Out today (November 13th) is Elton John 's massive eight-disc box set packed with rarities and unreleased tracks. Elton: Jewel Box includes a whopping 148 songs spanning Elton's entire career — with three discs dedicated to rarities from 1965 to 1971. The collection is available on eight-CD's, four-LP's, three-LP's, and two-LP's.
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.'”
