Tumbleweed Connection, Sussex

It was my favourite album as a teenager, and it still stands the test of time.Elton_John_-_Tumbleweed_Connection
But on idly reviewing the album on Wikipedia today, one thing struck me now that didn’t 40 years ago. The album cover photo, which at the time seemed so evocative of the American West, is so clearly England. Bluebell Railway in Sussex in fact. The ‘Daily Telegraph’ advert is the giveaway.
