17-11-70+ is the expanded edition of Elton John’s debut live album, originally released in March 1971 by DJM Records.

Elton John first live album, 17-11-70, provided a major boost to the young singer-songwriter’s career. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Record Store Day, Sir Elton John was named the first worldwide Record Store Day Legend, with his favourite live album 17-11-70 released as an expanded edition, limited to 4,000 copies, for the first time. 

17-11-70+ adds six previously unreleased songs from the performance at A&R Recording Studios in New York City, and “Amoreena” which was included on a mid-’90s reissue on CD, gets its first appearance on vinyl. The six previously unreleased tracks on this special vinyl release are "Indian Sunset", "Your Song", "Country Comfort", "I Need You To Turn To", "Border Song", and "My Father’s Gun".  It was mixed by long-time Elton engineer Matt Still and remastered by Bob Ludwig and pressed onto two 180-gram discs.

“The album 17-11-70 was not meant to be a live one at all,” Elton said in a press release on his website (eltonjohn.com). “We did one of the first ever stereo radio broadcasts live at A&R Recording Studios in New York City in 1970 on the 17th of November. It was Phil Ramone’s studio, one of the greatest producers of all time, and we just went in the booth and played it as a three-piece: Nigel Olsson on drums and vocals, Dee Murray on bass and vocals, and myself. There was a studio audience of about 100 sitting outside the booth, hearing it coming through the loud speakers, and we just played. I’m astonished by how good we were, listening to this record. It wasn’t initially coming out as a live album, but there were so many bootlegs in those days that the record company put it out. I’m glad they did because it really is something I’m very very proud of.”

The album front and back cover photos, taken by Elton’s photographer David Larkham were taken during Elton’s debut week of concerts at The Troubadour in Los Angeles in August 1970 (not from this live recording session).

17-11-70 joined three other Elton albums (Elton John, Tumbleweed Connection, and Friends) on the US Billboard Top LP Albums charts during the spring of 1971, peaking at #11. The album also reached #20 on both the Australian and UK Albums charts. No singles were released from this live album. 

Check out the tracks: “Take Me To The Pilot”; “Bad Side Of The Moon”; "Amoreena" and “Sixty Years On”. 

This 2017 Record Store Day Limited Edition expanded double LP of 4,000 copies with reproduced artwork is pressed in Europe on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl via Mercury Records.
