Featuring Jimi Hendrix, Billy Cox and Buddy Miles, Band Of Gypsys presents six of the most heralded live recordings in rock history including classics, "Machine Gun," "Who Knows" and "We Gotta Live Together." Available on 180-gram vinyl for the first time in the US. Includes 8-page booklet and reprint of a classic Capitol Records poster.
Limited 180 gram vinyl LP pressing. On Tumbleweed Connection, Elton John and Bernie Taupin attempted their most ambitious record to date for the follow-up to their breakthrough album. A loose concept album about the American West, Tumbleweed Connection emphasized the pretensions that always lay beneath their songcraft. The album was recorded at Trident Studios, London, England in March 1970 and released in October of the same year. It peaked at #2 on the UK Albums Chart and #5 on the US Billboard 200 chart. Dee Murray and Nigel Olsson appear for the first time together on this album as the rhythm section on "Amoreena". Olsson had played on one track on Empty Sky for John in 1969. It is Murray's first appearance on an Elton John album.
