Leon Russell - Leon Russell SACD AFZ235

One of the most startlingly original debut albums ever, "Leon Russell" was the culmination of many years' apprenticeship behind-the-scenes of the music business, where he was a well-known and long-respected figure. As one of the most accomplished musicians to emerge from the '60s music scene, Leon Russell proved equally accomplished as a singer, guitarist, keyboard player, composer and producer.

Musically he occupied the swampy middle ground between two very New Orleans-influenced artists, Dr John and Randy Newman, but Russell added to that slightly surreal gumbo a soulfulness and commercial songwriting ability all of his own. This eponymous collection was his third album and contained hits like Delta Lady – which has George Harrison’s distinctive slide all over its boogie – and Roll Away the Stone. There are also strong nods to Russell’s southern heritage in a cover of the classic I Put a Spell On You and the none-more-70s title Pisces Apple Lady.
