Leon Russell never quite hit all the right notes the way he did on his eponymous debut. He never again seemed as convincing in his grasp of Americana music and themes, never again seemed as individual, and never again did his limited, slurred bluesy voice seem as ingratiating…

Leon Russell never quite hit all the right notes the way he did on his eponymous debut. He never again seemed as convincing in his grasp of Americana music and themes, never again seemed as individual, and never again did his limited, slurred bluesy voice seem as ingratiating. He never again topped his triptych of "A Song for You," "Hummingbird," and "Delta Lady," nor did his albums contain such fine tracks as "Dixie Lullaby." Throughout it all, what comes across is Russell's idiosyncratic vision, not only in his approach but in his very construction – none of the songs quite play out as expected, turning country, blues, and rock inside out, not only musically but lyrically. Yes, his voice is a bit of an acquired taste, but it's only appropriate for a songwriter with enough chutzpah to write songs of his own called "I Put a Spell on You" and "Give Peace a Chance." And if there ever was a place to acquire a taste for Russell, it's here.

Genre: Rock

This is the man who co-wrote "Blues Power" with Eric Clapton, penned "Delta Lady" which Joe Cocker immortalized and Leon later toured with Mad Dogs and Englishmen, wrote "Superstar" with Bonnie Bramlett which Chris Farley and David Spade parodied the Carpenter's version in the movie "Tommy Boy" (Don'cha remember ya told me ya love me bay-bay). He worked with Phil Spector during Phil's Wall of Sound years. He performed with George Harrison at the legendary Concert for Bangla-Desh in 1971. Leon is our unknown national treasure. This set was recorded in Long Beach, California in 1972 at a time when Leon was at his most popular. If you are a fan of gospel-tinged boogie woogie, this album will not disappoint you. Leon and his travelling roadshow are at the top of their game, and you can expect that a musician of Leon's caliber would surround himself with top-notch people. This live performance is tight and captures the essence of "Leon Live". The medley will leave you breathless. It's good time rock and roll.

Label: Columbia Records | Tracks: 20 | Rls.date: 1978/2014

One for the Road, Willie Nelson's duet record with fellow American music maverick Leon Russell, followed months after his freewheeling, jam-heavy double album Willie and Family Live. This record (once a double LP, now a single CD) wasn't recorded live and the songs run a little shorter, but it shares the same sort of loose spirit and easy-rolling eclecticism as the two, essentially backed by the Family, run through a mess of country and pop standards.
