This dude seems really under-discussed on ILX - chaki attempted an album poll (LEON RUSSELL POLL 1970 - 1975) four years ago, but I'd hazard a guess that most ILXors don't know enough Leon Russell albums to confidently vote. But this greatest hits that I got out of my friend's giveaway pile is great! Great great great! SEARCH your local dollar bin, Spotify, or friend's giveaway piles and then VOTE!
I just bought Leon Russell for a dollar today because dude looked real intense on the cover. Never heard of him. This is fuckin incredible, hitting all my buttons: poppy strings, hard drinking, awful women. It's like Nelson Riddle backing up Hank Jr. I love it.

Really riding "Stranger in a Strange Land" and "Out in the Woods" today but "Tightrope" is always good stuff. I'm gonna have to listen to this record all week before I vote.
