Album Review

Leon Russell's Glorious Farewell

Leon Russell - On a Distant Shore

This is great news. I had no idea one of my favorite musicians left us with one last album to enjoy. However, I do wish he'd left out the strings which I felt marred his (what-I-thought-was) his last recording.

I still remember hearing "Mad Dogs and Englishmen" the first time...man, what a great band, and Leon was front and center...the arrangements and playing were just incredible, and I became such a fan, before I'd even heard any of his solo stuff...such a fine artist...
