A New Item Added To My Music Collection!

Hi everyone, 

I thought I'd share with you all my most recent purchase, which arrived in the post last week. For people who don't know, Elton John, my most favourite singer, released a brand new studio album in September.  The album is called "The Diving Board" and I bought the 15 track Standard Edition of the album on release day.  However, I had to wait a while to get what I'm going to show you now.....are you ready for it?! 

"The Diving Board - Super Deluxe Edition"! 

I'm very excited!

"The Diving Board - Super Deluxe Edition" comes in a nice size box that feels like it was done on canvas. 

It is a Limited Edition, only 5000 (I'm unsure if that's per country or all up), it even shows you on the back what number it is. I have 2653/5000! 

When you open the box, there's a black ribbon there to help lift the box contents out. The box contains the 15-track double vinyl LP in a gatefold sleeve, a print of the picture used for the album cover and a nice hard-cover book, which has the 19-track extended CD and bonus DVD, featuring Elton live at Capitol Studios in the back.

I feel it is nicely packaged together, I actually thought that the CD and DVD would be in the digipack version you see at the stores labelled as the Deluxe Edition but I was proven wrong. Had they done what I thought, the CD/DVD case would have been sliding loosely around the inside of the box.  

If you're an Elton fan and you don't have the album yet, I suggest you get this as soon as you can. 

Stay tuned for my review of "The Diving Board".


  1. Great post about a wonderful album, Bradley. I've enjoyed listening to it myself and, I agree, the box feels just like a canvas painting. Lovely!

  2. Wow! That looks quite fancy! I haven't heard any of the new songs and will be curious as to what you think of them and which is your favorite on the album. :)
