We study the analyticity of the topological pressure for some one-parameter families of potentials on countable Markov shifts. We relate the non-analyticity of the pressure to changes in the recurrence properties of the system. We give sufficient conditions for such changes to exist and not to exist. We apply these results to the Manneville-Pomeau map, and use them to construct examples with different critical behavior
