By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
"Tumbleweed Connection" has the dubious distinction of being the only Elton John album from the Seventies that did not offer up a certified "hit" (neither did "Madman Across the Water" if you want to get picky, but "Levon" was always a highly requested song on FM radio). However, the lack of acknowledge hits just speaks in favor of this album, because anybody who listens to Elton John's albums knows full well that his best songs are rarely (if ever) the Top 40 hits.
Half the songs on "Tumbleweed Connection" are 4:59 or longer in life, which means the odds were long that they would ever be played on the radio. Yet theses songs, such as "Country Comfort" and "Burn Down the Mission," stand out as some of the best work by John and lyricist Bernie Taupin during this period. There is something of a "country/western" flair to the album, at least as interpreted by two Englishmen, represented by not only those two songs but "Ballad of a Well Known Gun," "My Father's Gun," and "Talking Old Soldiers."
I think those who were listening to Elton John before he became a star (operationally defined as anything before "Honkey Chateau," always had a preference for these early albums, especially those where Paul Buckmaster was doing the arranging and conducting. Ironically, on many of these songs, such as "Come Down in Time," it is John's voice and not his piano playing that stands out. Of course, this is before the dazzling costumes and bizarre collection of eyeglasses, which made Elton John the Liberace of pop rock. This is way back almost to the beginning, when it was all about the music. By the time "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" came out, those days were clearly over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wanted: Elton dead or alive.. 23 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is Elton's 3rd album and shows a marked to change to the albums before. Elton trys something very different in doing a 'deep south, cowboy' album. It's risky, but it pays off in what's really an exception album.

The songs really cover 4 areas, the civil war, fathers, cowboys and loved ones. Ranging from poetic dixie songs to grand sprawling epics there's a lot to like, just don't expect 'the usual Elton', whatever that is..

I'd recommend this to any Elton fan, anyone interested in Country and Western music and people wanting insight into the wild west.

My personal favourite tracks are "Burn Down the Mission" which is a pianomans dream and "Into the old mans shoes" which includes a moving strings section, great lyrics and catchy melody.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Classic 1970 Album! 4 May 2007
By Martin A Hogan HALL OF FAME TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Although this album had no hit single, it represents one of Elton John and Bernie Taupin's strongest albums. Filled with imagery and a strong feeling for the old west, the songs bounce and rides along like an old western movie. Impeccably recorded, this SACD version (DSD) sounds crisp and clear with a strong bass and drum. Oft-covered songs like "Country Comfort" and "Burn Down The Mission" have been long favored FM songs. This is another Buckmaster/Dudgeon production and veterans Nigel Olsson and Dee Murray also play here. Dusty Springfield and Kate Taylor (James Taylor's sister) make cameo backing vocals as well. The inclusion of the original version of "Madman Across The Water" is a great addition. Nothing beats Elton John in Surround Sound!
