A huge fan from the age of 11, Kate chose to record Rocket Man for the Two Rooms project. It was the first cover tune she released since Donovan's Lord Of The Reedy River in 1981.
This is a similar, but stripped down version of the UK trifold digipak. The disc is packaged in a simple cardboard sleeve (using a slightly enlarged version of the image shown on the UK release).
The instrumental version of Candle In The Wind is one of Kate's more elusive tracks. It only appears on the 12" and (most) CD Rocket Man releases.
