MSN Music is teaming up with Universal Music Group to give away a copy of the lavish anniversary update of Elton John’s classic 1973 album "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" autographed by Sir Elton himself.  


To win this one-of-a-kind package visit our Facebook page and share the post announcing this contest with your friends. After you share the post, let us know by contacting us at msnmusicfans@microsoft.com. The lucky winner will be notified via e-mail, and we'll arrange shipment of the autographed super deluxe edition "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" set. Submissions need to be made on or before midnight PT Monday, April 14.


This five-disc expanded edition includes a remastered version of the original double album plus a CD featuring new recordings of key tracks by contemporary artists picked by Sir Elton including Ed Sheeran, Miguel, Hunter Hayes, The Band Perry and Fall Out Boy with additional album tracks and B-Sides.  Also included is the complete "Live at Hammersmith 1973" concert on two CDs plus a DVD of Bryan Forbes’ 1973 film, “Elton John and Bernie Taupin Say Goodbye To Norma Jean and Other Things.”


A 100-page illustrated hardback book featuring photos, memorabilia and new interviews with Sir Elton and longtime lyricist Taupin completes the package.


Elton John was already a Top 10 artist in the U.S. and U.K. when he, Taupin and Elton’s band began recording "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," but the project marked heightened ambitions underscored by its original release as a two-LP double set. 


This year finds Sir Elton back in the headlines with a headlining performance at this June’s Bonnaroo festival in Manchester, Tenn., a critically acclaimed 2013 album, "The Diving Board," and plans to renew his wedding vows with partner David Furnish next month.
