From the Land of Band Box Records

Tumbleweed Records

(From Discogs):

This label was launched in 1971 by a group of businessmen, among them Bill Szymczyk, who would soon be famous as producer for Eagles and Larry Ray, both associated with ABC/Dunhill Records.

The label was located in Denver and largely financed by Gulf+Western. It took only nine albums to spend all the money, after which the label folded in 1973.
Since there was substantial financial support, packaging and production values were of a high level (for such a small label).

Albert Collins

COLLINS ALBERT
Albert Collins was a noted blues musician on the national scene. Here is his Wikipedia story of how he came briefly to record on the Colorado Tumbleweed record label: “In November 1971 the Denver label Tumbleweed, which had been newly created by Larry Ray and Bill Szymczyk, released the Collins album There’s Gotta Be A Change; it was the label’s first official release. The single “Get Your Business Straight” b/w “Frog Jumpin'” was released by Tumbleweed in February 1972. In 1973 Tumbleweed closed due to financial problems, leaving Collins without a record label.
