"There may not be a more versatile or accomplished musician in all rock'n'roll"
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 Russellproved equally accomplished as a singer, guitarist, keyboard player, composer and producer.
Combining those skill after a long apprenticeship in Hollywood recording studios, by the '70sLeonwas widely recognized as one of rock's true renaissance men.

Wilson, Joe Cocker and back-up singers, Merry Clayton and Clydie King.
Among the wonderful songs included are "Delta Lady," his standard-to-be, "A Song For You," and "Hummingbird."
