Elton John photo shoot in Montserrat for the 'Empty Garden' single cover and press photography for the 'Jump album

Martyn Goddard recalls, "The reason for being summonsed to the Caribbean was to shoot a cover for Elton's upcoming single 'Empty Garden' and press photography for the 'Jump Up!' L.P. Laura and I bounced around the sun soaked island in a Mini Moke, checking out locations that we might use but at the daily meetings it was becoming obvious it would be the hotel beach or nothing. On the fifth day the weather was great and all was set for the shoot until Elton decide he had to listen to the commentary of Watford vs West Ham in the 4th round of the FA Cup. The road manager, sensing desperation on Laura's part and resignation on mine, said Elton was recording at AIR Studios, Montserrat on Sunday morning and we were invited to fly over and shoot the cover during the lunch break.

Unfortunately on our arrival Montserrat looked more like Morecambe on a wet winter's mornng than a sub tropical island. The studio pool was the location and for about an hour I had Elton John at my beck and call, which became a bit of a workout as the album title involved a fair bit of jumping! One hour's work in a week but a whole lot of planning and anguish".

    Delivery charges are added during the checkout process and calculated on a 'by country' basis.

In these instances we will notify the customer of when they are likely to receive a print.

    It you have any queries regarding delivery charges or need a print delivered by a specific date, please let us know and we will do our best to sort this out.

  • VAT

    VAT (Value Added Tax) is a tax added to prints and other goods that are delivered to the UK.  

    Prints delivered to countries outside of the UK do not have VAT charged to them.

    Our prices are displayed excluding VAT, so for orders outside of the UK the price shown is the price that will be charged. For UK orders VAT is added during checkout.

    The current UK rate of VAT is 20%. Import charges may apply to orders delivered outside of the EU. Books are exempt from being charged VAT.

    If you have any queries regading VAT please email info@rockarchive.com

  • Framing

    A great print deserves a great frame. At Rockarchive we would be delighted to advise you on how best to select the right frame for your print. Please just let us know when you place your order or contact us once you have received your print and we will discuss the various options with you.

    If you live in London we can arrange to get your print framed for you. Once the print is framed you can either collect it from our London Rockarchive Studio, in Kentish Town or we can arrange for it to be delivered to your London address (at an extra charge).

    If you live elsewhere in the UK, we can arrange to get smaller sized prints framed and shipped to you. However due to postage regulations acrylic (eg perspex) rather than glass needs to be used in the frame.

    If you live outside of the UK, we are sorry we are unable to ship framed prints to you.

    For all framing enquiries please contact us at info@rockarchive.com or call us on +44 (0) 20 7267 4716
