Elton's soulful mix of country, blues and rock and killer tunes like Country Comfort; Son of Your Father , and Ballad of a Well-Known Gun made this concept LP a #5 hit in '71 (bonuses: Into the Old Man's Shoes and the original version of Madman Across the Water )!
Tumbleweed Connection is part of the early catalogue 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." Even if the lyrics were generally written by Bernie Taupin, John's voice and inflection made every song seem deeply personal. The beautiful "Come Down in Time" displays the subtleties and sophistication of his talent, with the piano not yet serving as the instrumental focal point it would later become. The album also features the favourite "Ballad of a Well-Known Gun" and "Where to Now St. Peter?" --Steve Gdula
This is an unusual Elton John album, as it is much more along the lines of American folk than the then current "pop". Read morePublished 16 months ago by Denise Grieve

What a delightful and complete work!The lack of commercial singles did not keep this album form becoming a million seller in 1970. Read morePublished on March 26 2004 by Antonio M Vazquezpausa
Love song is my second favourite track, with it's mezmerizing and hipnotic acoustic riff that's very relaxing. His vocals are honest on that one, too. It's a great song. Read morePublished on March 8 2004 by Tnahpellee
As a 30-year Elton fan, Tumbleweed Connection was always my favorite Elton album. It has a wonderfully intimate feel, top-notch songwriting, and a warm, organic tone. Read morePublished on Feb. 19 2004 by S. Ferguson
1971 was an odd time for Elton to jump in the saddle, genre-wise. He had just established himself as an international pop star with his U.S. debut, "Elton John," the year before. Read morePublished on Jan. 31 2004 by Bill Slocum
