  • Tumbleweed Connection

    On the heels of Elton John's eponymous breakthrough, Tumbleweed Connection (1970) is a heavily themed album centered around the American Old West. Influenced by the Band's Music from Big Pink, it draws from country and blues and mixes Civil War references with Paul Buckmaster's cinematic orchestrations. The scene is set with the blues rocker "Ballad of a Well-Known Gun," featuring backup vocals by Dusty Springfield. It journeys through the more experimental, harp-based "Come Down in Time," the steel guitar cry of "Country Comfort," the soulful love song "Amoreena," and the acoustic piano and vocal tale "Talking Old Soldiers" before its rollicking, gospel-chorded close, "Burn Down the Mission." But it's "My Father's Gun" that stands out as the album's centerpiece with its building gospel choruses and passionate performances. Created as a narrative of interlocking songs, Tumbleweed Connection did not produce any hit singles but is undeniably one of John's most vibrant classics; it not only cemented the songwriter as a strong melodicist but a riveting storyteller.
