On June 12th, Regimental Sgt Zippo--which was originally going to be Elton's debut album--was released as part of Record Store Day 2021.
There are actually two different days set aside this year because of Covid-19. The other date is July 17, and that's when A Tribute To Curtis Mayfield is out on vinyl for the first time. Amen is one of the tracks, and was recorded by Elton and Sounds of Blackness.
Limited to 4,950 copies worldwide, the double LP RSD Exclusive will be issued on light blue and grey mixed vinyl. This was previously released, only on CD, in 1994.
Aretha Franklin, B.B. King, Rod Stewart, Phil Collins, Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder and Steve Winwood were some of the other artists who did A Tribute To Curtis Mayfield sessions.
