Elton John fans are going to love this news. It was just announced today that Elton John’s legendary album Madman Across The Water is going to be released in a 50th Anniversary issue in just a few short months in June 2022. This iconic album which stands as one of Elton John’s greatest albums ever released featured two of his most loved songs in “Levon,” and of course “Tiny Dancer.”

The Madman Across The Water album was released originally on November 5th 1971. Not many people realize the all star cast of musicians that performed on the album, including Rick Wakeman of Yes who played Hammond organ on three of the album tracks including the title cut “Madman Across The Water.” Released two years after his debut album, Madman Across The Water is also the album in which we see the classic Elton John band come together that featured Nigel Olson on drums, Davey Johnstone on guitar, Dee Murray on bass and Ray Cooper on percussion. Of course, we must also pay tribute to the incredible work of Paul Buckmaster and his string arrangements. The album also featured Roger Pope on drums who would later become a member of the Elton John Band during the Rock Of The Westies and Blue Moves albums.

The 50 Anniversary issue is loaded with remastered cuts, demos, live material and rarities. This looks to be one of the most incredible reissues of a major rock and roll album ever. We love the addition of the original version of the song “Madman Across the Water,” which featured Ian Hunter’s guitarist and songwriting partner Mick Ronson on guitar.

Below is the tracklisting for the multiple version of the 50th Anniversary Issue that will be released on June 10, 2022.
