Marhall Blonstein's Audio Fidelity is releasing Leon Russell's self-titled debut album on 180g Blue Translucent Vinyl with gatefold sleeve! One of the most startling original debut albums ever, “Leon Russell” was the culmination of many years apprenticeship behind-the-scenes of the music business, where he was a well-known and long-respected figure. As one of the most accomplished musicians to emerge from the '60s music scene, Leon Russell proved equally accomplished as a singer, guitarist, keyboard player, composer and producer.


Combing those skill after many years as a touring musician and in Hollywood recording studios, Russell emerged in the '70s as one of rock's true renaissance men.

On this recording, Russell was surrounded by a cast of top-level musicians including Chris Stainton and Alan Spenner, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, Klaus Voorman, Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett, Jim Gordon, Bobby Whitlock, Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, B.J. Wilson, Joe Cocker and back-up singers, Merry Clayton and Clydie King.

Among the wonderful songs included are “Delta Lady,” his standard-to-be, “A Song For You,” and “Hummingbird.”

Russell was inducted into both the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame.
