Description

50th Anniversary Vinyl 4LP Box Set with 2016 Bob Ludwig Remaster and Three Discs of Demos, Live and Alternative Versions Plus 40-Page Book!

Madman Across The Water, Elton John's fourth studio album, was largely written after his and Bernie Taupin's celebrated first visit to America, giving them a wide new vista of inspiration for their songwriting. Recorded at Trident Studios in Central London in February and August 1971, it was first released in November that year and, as America's love affair with the star blossomed, climbed to No. 8. The LP included the staples "Tiny Dancer" and "Levon," as well as the brooding title track, and was the first to feature all of the key contributors to so many of his future records and live shows, Dee Murray, Nigel Olsson, Davey Johnstone, and Ray Cooper. Appearances are also made by Rick Wakeman, B.J. Cole, Chris Spedding, and Herbie Flowers.

This 50th Anniversary vinyl 4LP box set features the 2016 Bob Ludwig remaster of the original album, 2LPs of demos, live and alternative versions, and an LP with a BBC Sounds For Saturday concert, first broadcast in 1972. The set also includes a 40-page booklet with introductions by Elton and Bernie, photos and essay featuring interviews with many who helped make Madman Across The Water, plus a reproduction 1971-poster, as well as memorabilia and artwork taken from the Rocket Archive.
