Goodbye Yellow Brick Road album by Elton John, signed neatly on the front cover in black ballpoint. In very fine condition. The record is included. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks and by a typed letter of provenance from the original recipient: “In 1978 I opened an interior design, property renovation, fabrics, ornaments, lighting etc. shop in Primrose Hill…My general assistant, buyer, designs etc, was Susan Hall. Her husband was John Hall. He worked for Rocket Records...John asked me to handle various alteration works within the building. John Reid—Elton's ‘manager’ ran the company and I negotiated and took instructions from him. One of the latter jobs was to gut part of the basement and build a bedroom and bathroom for Elton to use when he stayed over…As often, when settling accounts, taking instructions etc., we were sitting in John Reid’s office and he passed over to me, the Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, which he said Elton had signed and sent to me as a small thanks for the works.”
