To mark the upcoming reissue of Elton John’s Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, the legendary singer/songwriter is delivering a valentine to fans: a previously unreleased video for Harmony, originally planned as the fourth single from the lauded 1973 album. The video will be available on Vevo starting Friday.
The Harmony video was compiled by Tam Johnstone, the son of Davey Johnstone, the longtime guitarist for John and a player on the Goodbye album. The 1973-74 tour footage used in the video was recently discovered in the attics of John’s former tour managers Marvin Tabolsky and John Babcock. The clip also captures an encounter between John and Stevie Wonder.
The remastered Goodbye Yellow Brick Road will be reissued March 25 on CD, vinyl, limited-edition yellow vinyl and in a box set with a recording of Live at Hammersmith1973 on CD, a DVD of Bryan Forbes’ 1973 film Elton John and Bernie Taupin Say Goodbye to Norma Jean and Other Things and a 100-page illustrated hardbound book of rare photos, memorabilia and interviews with John and Taupin.
