Elton John on “The Morecambe & Wise Christmas Special” in 1977

Elton John‘s new album, ‘The Diving Board,’ is coming out on Sept. 24 and he’s offering fans the chance to hear the first single, ‘Home Again,’ via instant download when they pre-order ‘The Diving Board’ through iTunes. The record is being released in a variety of configurations, including Standard, Deluxe, Super-Deluxe and 180-gram vinyl formats; fans who pony up for the deluxe versions will be treated to an assortment of extra content, including bonus tracks, a DVD, and live sessions.

Seems like a good time as any to take a look back into 1977 for this appearance.
