Hot on the heels of a sold-out 2019 Record Store Day release and 40 years after Elton John became the first major Western pop star to play the USSR, the seminal performance ‘Live From Moscow’ with percussionist Ray Cooper finally gets a full release on 2LP vinyl, 2CD and digital formats. First broadcast by BBC Radio 1 in 1979 and the subject of the acclaimed documentary film ‘To Russia With Elton’, the audio has been fully remastered for this release by Bob Ludwig from the original BBC analogue tapes. A sensation from start to finish, with pared down, unique versions of Elton classics like ‘Daniel’, ‘Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting’ and ‘Bennie And The Jets’, plus cover versions of ‘I Heard It Through The Grapevine’, ‘Get Back’ and ‘Back In The USSR’, the 1979 Russian tour has gone down in history as one of the landmark moments in rock history as well as being a personal career highlight for Elton. He says: “It was one of the most memorable and happy tours I have been on. The last show was probably one of the best concerts I’ve ever given in my life.”
