Written by Chief Editor.

Elton's Instagram page says that's it is vital to support record shops. They mean a lot to him, so he's releasing a special version of Live From Moscow With Ray Cooper for Record Store Day 2019, which falls on the 13th of April.

2019 is the 40th anniversary of Elton's historic first tour of Russia – he was the first Western rock star to ever perform in the country.  

The show in Moscow on May 28, 1979 was broadcast on BBC radio in the UK.

This special 2 LP release for Record Store Day is taken from the original broadcast masters.

It's been remastered by Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering and cut at Abbey Road.
