In 1977 Elton selected producer Thom Bell (The Spinners, The Stylistics) to flavour his music with the Philadelphia Sound. This disc expands the original three-song vinyl EP released in 1979 and features the US Top Ten single, Mama Can't Buy You Love. In 2003, a remix of Are You Ready For Love reached #1 in the UK Singles and Billboard Hot Dance Club charts.
