    I never knew Rick Wakeman played on Madman Across the Water

    Stick this in the "ya learn something new every day" file:
    I recently picked up this EJ album on hi-res format. Although I've heard these songs before, I've never owned Madman Across the Water. Reading the liner notes, I see Rick Wakeman is credited on 3 tracks including the title track. Man, he must have been a busy guy in the early 70's.

    What a great album "Madman" is!

    I think he also played on Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, but I may be wrong about this.

    I didn't know that about Madman. Guess I never read the liner notes in all these years, but yeah, there it is in black and white . . .

    Cool.

    I agree, it's a fantastic album.

    You are not! And if you compare the synthesizer 'tone' on "Who Are You?" to the one on "White Rock", you will find a striking resemblance.

    I checked Wakemans bio on AMG, and ironically they don't mention the Madman connection, but they do mention him working with Sabbath as well as Bowie and a bunch of other groups before joining Yes.
    and all these years I thought Yes discovered him!

    from AMG:

    By his late teens, he was an established session man, playing on records by such diverse acts as Black Sabbath, Brotherhood of Man, and Edison Lighthouse. At the end of the '60s, his name also began appearing on the credits of albums by such artists as Al Stewart and David Bowie, and one set of sessions with a folk-rock band called the Strawbs led to his joining the group in 1970. After two albums with the Strawbs, Wakeman joined Yes, a post-psychedelic hard rock band
