Instead of repeating the formula that made Elton John a success, John and Bernie Taupin attempted their most ambitious record to date for the follow-up to their breakthrough. A loose concept album about the American West, Tumbleweed Connection emphasized the pretensions that always lay beneath their songcraft. Elton John released Tumbleweed Connection on Oct 30, 1970. And in a way, it's kind of a puzzling move at this stage of John's career. For two British guys in their 20s trying to make a name for themselves and recording in London, no less, John and Taupin surveyed a world they couldn't have been more far removed from. But, pulling inspiration from music the Band 's second album and movies John Ford films, they get closer to the Old West than many of their contemporaries who were kicking around similar dust in the post-Woodstock era of the early '70s. Tumbleweed Connection centers around and is structured by Bernie Taupins lyrics. Like the Band and Creedence, both of whom have influenced him, Taupin writes about the mythical American south and west and seems to prefer the past to the present as a subject. There Goes a Well Known Gun is about an outlaw on the run Country Comfort concerns the pleasures of the farm. This item:Tumbleweed Connection by Elton John Audio CD . In Stock.

Tumbleweed Connection is part of the early catalog of Elton John's work that Guns N' Roses singer Axl Rose reportedly once said he would love to own the publishing rights to as a work of art. Indeed, it does contain some of John's most expressive work as an artist, but with the showy stage presence and pop melodicism still under construction. Tumbleweed is characterized by John's balladeer approach, with John at his storyteller best on songs like Burn Down the Mission. Elton John - Tumbleweed Connection 1970.
