17-11-70 (US title 11-17-70), released in 1971, is the fifth official album release for Elton John, and his first live album. The recording was taken from a live radio broadcast on 17 November 1970, hence the album's title. According to John, a live album was never planned as a release. Recordings of the broadcast, however, were popular among bootleggers which, according to John's producer, Gus Dudgeon, eventually prompted the record label to release it as an album.
Among them: Britain’s runaway star in the making. His music is contagious. 11-17-70 joined three other Elton albums ( Elton John, Tumbleweed Connection, and Friends ) on the Billboard Top LP’s charts during the spring of 1971. In addition, many of those chart weeks included six albums by other artists containing Elton songs or performances: Three Dog Night’s Golden Biscuits and Andy Williams’ Love Story included covers of Your Song ; Mary Travers’ Mary had her doing Indian Sunset ; Sister Kate by Kate Taylor (James’ sibling) contained covers of Ballad Of A Well-Known Gun and Country Comfort – the latter. was also included on Rod Stewart’s Gasoline Alley – and Elton played on, wrote for, and co-produced the Long.
The album 17-11-70 was not meant to be a live one at all; we did one of the first ever stereo radio broadcasts live at A&R Recording Studios in New York City in 1970 on the 17th of November. It was Phil Ramone’s studio, one of the greatest producers of all time, and we just went in the booth and played it as a three-piece: Nigel Olsson on drums and vocals, Dee Murray on bass and vocals, and myself. There was a studio audience of about 100 sitting outside the booth, hearing it coming through the loud speakers, and we just played. The plane itself was losing its appeal in general, thanks to changing economics and increasing fuel costs, and was eventually dismantled for parts. But for four years in the mid-1970s, and much like Elton’s caree. hat a ride!

The great thing about this early live record is its obscurity - not just that this isn't one of his better-known records, but that the set list is a fanboy's dream, heavy on album tracks, covers, and the kinds of song that make Elton John's early work so individual.
