''Step Into Christmas'' News

Written by Chief Editor.

In 1973, Elton appeared on an episode of the Gilbert O’Sullivan Show in the United Kingdom. The rocker used the opportunity to perform Step Into Christmas, which had been released as a single in November of that year. 

Now the music-maker has shared the recently unearthed original clip of him performing the holiday classic, along with a new three-song EP.

The pianist was joined on the television show by his classic 1970s lineup of guitarist Davey Johnstone, bassist Dee Murray and drummer Nigel Olsson along with a rare appearance by Elton's songwriting partner Bernie Taupin on percussion.

Additionally, the former Reg Dwight has released a new three-song EP which includes the original studio version Step Into Christmas along with its B-side Ho! Ho! Ho! (Who’d Be A Turkey At Christmas) as well as the live version of Step Into Christmas from the Gilbert O’Sullivan Show.
