Rare Masters (1992) Duets

Rare Masters is an album by Elton John that was released in 1992. This compilation album features all A-side and B-sides released by John between 1968 and 1975 that were not included on original studio albums or Greatest Hits volume II.

The album also includes five outtakes, recorded between the same time period, that had previously been unreleased. It is also the only place where the soundtrack to the 1971 movie Friends has been made available on CD.

When the Elton John back catalogue from 1969–1975 was remastered and released in 1995, many of these songs were released on those albums as well, also in remastered form.
