Tumbleweed Connection is the third studio album by English singer-songwriter Elton John, released in October 1970 in the United Kingdom and January 1971 in the United States. It is a concept album based on country and western/Americana themes. All songs are written by John and Bernie Taupin, with the exception of "Love Song" by Lesley Duncan. The album was recorded at Trident Studios, London, England in March 1970 and released in October of the same year.

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. Half of the songs don't follow conventional pop song structures; instead, they flow between verses and vague choruses. These experiments are remarkably successful, primarily because Taupin's lyrics are evocative and John's melodic sense is at its best.

Tumbleweed Connection. This definitive deluxe reissue of Elton's third album (first released in 1970) includes 13 additional tracks – previously unreleased cuts, demos and BBC Radio performance sessions of songs from the original album. One John/Taupin song, Sisters Of The Cross, has never been released before and can be heard in demo form here.

Songs in album Elton John - Tumbleweed Connection (1970). 1. Ballad of a Well-Known Gun.

Tumbleweed Connection centers around and is structured by Bernie Taupin’s 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. He is not a great lyricist but he is certainly an interesting one and he provides Elton John with a fine vehicle for expressing himself. John is a fine singer in the soul-folk vein. His singing and his melodies on this album are exceptionally good. What isn’t so exciting is the busy arrangements that seem to diffuse the energy of the performances. For example, John’s Country Comfort has nothing close to the power of Rod Stewart’s simpler, more straight-forward interpretation.

Back home, Sounds was unreserved in its praise: There isn’t one track on this album I could fault, wrote Penny Valentine. In January 1971, little more than three months since the Elton John album became his first US chart record, Tumbleweed Connection entered the Billboard charts at an impactful N. 8. Even more impressively, it gave Elton two of America’s biggest albums at the same time, with his previous, eponymous release at N. 1 that week. Within seven days, those positions were N. 1 and N., respectively; another week on, he had two of the top six albums in the country.
