    27, where genius goes to die. She was remarkable because she was real. Raw, ragged, tough, frightened, beautiful, not to mention fiercely talented.

    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.
