Leon Russell—Live In Japan!
Unless you’re a die-hard Leon Russell fan, there’s a real good chance you’ve never heard of his Live In Japan album from 1974. That’s because it’s never been released anywhere but in Japan—until now. Not only is this the first time this amazing recording will be available in America, but it’s also the first time it’s been on CD.
We’ve also unearthed a live set from 1971, recorded at Sam Houston Coliseum in Texas. Seven live tracks that have never been released anywhere in any format. You’ll be amazed that this much Leon could fit on one CD, but luckily for you—it does.
With liner notes from Leon Russell historian Steve Todoroff—author of the upcoming book Longhair Music: The Songs And Sessions Of Leon Russell—and by Rev. Patrick Henderson—a member of the touring band for the 1973 Japan tour.
