Hit maker and musician's musician struck chart gold with 1972 album Carney! Analogue Productions reissue on 200-gram vinyl Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from the original master tapes Plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings! Heavyweight tip-on old-style jacket from Stoughton Printing With his trademark top hat, hair well past his shoulders, a long, lush beard, an Oklahoma drawl and his fingers splashing two-fisted barrelhouse piano chords, future Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Leon Russell cut a flamboyant figure in the early 1970s. Sadly, Russell's life as a musical muse and performer ended with his death at 74 on Nov. 13, 2016, at his home in Nashville. He will be forever remembered for making a broad, sophisticated palette of American music sound down-home and natural.
