Elton John’s fourth studio album release in little over two years, "Madman Across The Water" has been a long held favourite of artist and fans alike. "Madman" was largely written after Elton had made his initial foray to America; offering the opportunity for lyricist Bernie Taupin to witness first-hand the landscapes and people he’d only seen on a screen or on the page.

Recorded at Trident Studios in Central London in February and August 1971, it was the first album where all five players of Elton’s fabled band line up – Dee Murray, Nigel Olsson, Davey Johnstone and Ray Cooper – were featured, albeit not on the same tracks.

While the UK was still deciding about Elton, these nine tracks struck a chord with Elton’s US audiences, reaching the Top 10 and its singles, Levon and Tiny Dancer both hit the US Top 50. After years as a ‘best kept secret’ to Elton’s fans, Tiny Dancer has gone on to become one of his most loved songs, third only to Rocket Man and Your Song in global streaming lists.

This celebration of the album to mark its 50th anniversary comes in two different formats.
