Unseen footage for new Elton John documentary

Tam Johnstone, son of long time Elton John band member Davey Johnstone, is currently making a documentary about the original Elton John band from the early 1970's.

It all began with late bass playes Dee Murray's wife Anett wanting to make a documentary about her husband. She got in touch with a couple of crew members from the early days and discovered that they had shot Super 8 footage while on the road with Elton and the band.
That unseen footage from the years 1971-1974 is now part of the documentary on the whole band.

Here's a taster using some of that footage used in a new video for Harmony from the 1973 double album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road:
