LEON RUSSELL/Live In Japan 1973: Available August 9th, 2011!

Leon Russell's profile has recently been raised as he was inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall Of Fame and he enjoyed equal billing with Elton John on the pair's 2010 album The Union. This release features a double helping of Leon Russell in concert in the '70s - half of it extremely rare and half previously unreleased. The first nine tracks were recorded at Tokyo's Budokan Hall in November 1973. These were previously released on a Japanese-only LP and have never before been released on CD. The other seven tracks were recorded at a concert in Houston in April 1971 and have never been released before in any form. This is a treat for Leon Russell fans as well as Rock enthusiasts!

Here is a clip of Leon Russell live. This particular performance is NOT included on this set, although it is very representative of this landmark release:
