Goodbye Yellow Brick Road Back


The Copy of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road LP that I have is pressed in the US and distributed my MCA Records. The album peaked at number one in the Billboard Top 200 in 1973. Some of the songs in the album also made an impact at their respective song categories. The album was Ranked number 91 by Rolling Stones Magazine’s 2003 list of the greatest album of all time. This LP really showed how versatile and great as a performer Elton John really is and you can see by the awards that this album gave him. I was glad about having this LP because you can clearly see that the previous owner really took great care of it the cover has no wears or tears and the vinyl record has no scratches. When I get a free time I will definitely enjoy listening to this record.
