When Sir Elton John gave his first performance at The Troubadour in Los Angeles, he was a lad of only 23.

It has been 50 years since that first performance and Sir Elton is celebrating with a special vinyl release of his self titled debut album.  The new release is a double album release with a remastered version of the album plus a second disc featuring demos and bonus tracks.

The special edition comes in transparent purple.

A second special release will be released as a gold vinyl single album on October 30.
