Leon Russell - Leon Russell & The Shelter People (1971)

Leon Russell is an American singer, songwriter and musician, best known as a virtuoso pianist.

Leon Rusell's second album continued where his first left off, taking the same high-energy piano-driven rock sound and streamlining it into what became recognised as Russell's own distinctive sound. Alongside eight brilliant original songs were two Bob Dylan songs and a cover of George Harrison's "Beware Of Darkness", all re-cast in inventive new arrangements. It's often considered his best album, and was his first to go Gold. Instrumental backing came from a host of highly regarded session musicians, including bassist Carl Radle, guitarist Jesse Davis and drummer Jim Keltner. Two songs also featured the Muscle Shoals Swampers as his backing group (bassist David Hood, drummer Roger Hawkins, guitarist Jimmy Johnson and organist Barry Beckett).
