The first series of albums (which were also released in a limited edition velvet box, bearing Elton's signature[1]) was released in 1995 and included:

The second part of the series was released in 1998, and included:

Victim of Love, 21 at 33, The Fox, Jump Up! and Breaking Hearts were eventually remastered and re-released on their own accord in 2003.
