Following the RSD clear vinyl pressing early this year, Universal Music will make Elton John‘s Live From Moscow concert recording more widely available, with a new black vinyl edition coming in February, along with the CD debut of the performance.

The show in Moscow was with percussionist Ray Cooper, and was performed on 28 May 1979. It was originally broadcast on BBC radio in the UK.

This release is taken from the original broadcast masters, which have been remastered by Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering.

Speaking on the concert, Elton explains: “I can honestly say it has been one of the best experiences of my life. It was one of the most memorable and happy tours I have been on. The last show was probably one of the best concerts I’ve ever given in my life. Working with Ray, with just the two of us on stage, was both exhilarating and challenging.”
