Tumbleweed Connection Exculsive Green Vinyl


Ships on: July 26, 2024

Released in the UK in October 1970, Tumbleweed Connection is a much-loved album within Elton John’s back catalogue. Steeped in what was to become known as ‘Americana’, it was written and recorded entirely in London in March 1970. Although released afterwards, it was actually recorded before "Your Song" had become a hit and before Elton’s triumphant debut performances at The Troubadour in Los Angeles. Its iconic sepia sleeve evokes a long-forgotten west, and contains some of Elton and Bernie Taupin’s greatest early songs: "Ballad Of A Well-Known Gun", "Burn Down The Mission" and "Amoreena". This strictly limited 180gm green vinyl edition celebrates the album’s 50th Anniversary and provides a timely reminder of Elton on his journey to superstardom.
