“Empty Sky” is Elton John’s debut studio album, released in 1969. Recorded during the winter of 1968 and spring of 1969 in a DJM Records 8-track studio, it stands out as the only album in the early part of his career not produced by Gus Dudgeon. Instead, it was helmed by friend and DJM staffer Steve Brown. The album features tracks like “Skyline Pigeon,” which John has described as the first song he and Bernie Taupin ever got excited about writing. Although commercially less successful, “Empty Sky” remains a significant milestone in Elton John’s musical journey. Embark yourself into Elton John's music origins with this vinyl record.
