Am loving "On a Distant Shore" Just delivered this morning. Awesome new songs and great new takes on This Masquerade and Hummingbird. Although you cant get better than the original Hummingbird. Thanks again for the music and the memories all your great songs rekindle for me Leon. R.I.P. big fella, gone but still with us.

I'm sitting here with tears running down my face. Leon's spirit has touched my heart with a slap "Here Without You" is an absolute masterpiece! I haven't even gotten through the CD yet. WOW! How I'm gonna miss this man after this last surprise album. God Bless Leon Russell!

Watching Living in the Material World for the umpteenth time and seeing Leon on Concert for Bangladesh. Nothing better on the planet! Missing you every day, Leon.

Been thinking about Leon lately after his pal Glen passed. Leon was such a huge part of my youth, I saw him in the early 70s and was just blown away. Great songwriter, great lyricist.
"To the censor I'm p... with no redeeming grace...
To the hooker I'm a customer without a face..."
Just brilliant.
So long Leon, hope to see you soon.

I was SO happy to hear about one last new Leon recording. On a Distant Shore - what a perfect title and Coco's painting on the cover art is INCREDIBLE. I told my sister the news today and she cried - we both have loved Leon's music forever!
Can't wait to order!

Just want to say that it is so hard to lose such heroes or talented folk that we grew up listening to, it means we are getting older, he is missed for sure. Great memories of him, saw him in Charlotte, N.C., Hampton Road, Va. kind of hard to swallow all the sadness.

Still sad about Leon's passing, although I know he must feel better in Heaven. It's just hard for us who loved him and his music. He was truly a musical genius, and it is hard to imagine that he won't be writing new songs for us. He did, however, leave us a treasure trove of beautiful songs that I never tire of.

I was able to see the memorial service online, which was a great tribute to him. At the end of the service, there was a song that Leon was singing, it was playing as people were leaving the service. It is a beautiful song, but I don't know the name of it. I really love it and would like to find it. It starts with "My poor heart sounds like a drum on a mountain far away. I'm waiting here for my time to come and I........" That is all I heard from the very short time it played. I think it might be a fairly recent song, maybe written in the 2000's.
Can anyone tell me the name of the song?

My prayers are with the family and hope they know that all the Leon fans are sending their love to them.

All my love and prayers for comfort and healing are with you.

Thank you for your comments Becky. The song you heard was "On A Distant Shore". Just before he passed, Leon had completed work on a new album and this song is the title song. The album is beautifully orchestrated and his daughter Coco Bridges painted a portrait which is used on the cover. It will be available in stores on Sept 22nd. Please be watching for more information on this album in the coming weeks. There is a deluxe edition that has a lyric booklet that you might enjoy.

I had enjoyed the man's music throughout my life,but I didn't know exactly how important his sound was to me, until I finally "cracked the code" of the lyricism, subtleties, and production mastery of "Carney," which I now call "the basilica of the church of Leon Russell." After acquiring so many of the classic Wrecking Crew LPs,I learned that Leon is the foundation of so many things that have been familiar to me all my life. He was always there, but sometimes I didn't know it. Very recently, I had an epiphany, and though I am not religious, I'm an atheist, but I saw in a dream...a therapeutic dream that if I were to join any church, it would be his, even now that he's gone. I want to say to all of you that I do respect how his music changed your lives, and how in records such as "Carney" he is able to elicit genuine feeling...to draw out one's emotions. I see Leon Russell's LPs as complete masterpiece paintings of sound. As a person, I consider him to be an empathetic shaman, he leads the journey and keeps travelers safe. He really understood what moves people, and the healing power of what he did musically. Thanks, Leon, and to the group.

I'm so grateful I found the music by the man - at first, didn't make much impression but with time I really started to appreciate it! Looking forward to collect the recordings and respect the legacy!

I second the previous statement. I saw Leon so many places, so many times in NC and in other states. My favorite recording will always be "Solid State". A favorite song from the recording is: "A New Kind Of Fire". What a great musical poet was the great Leon Russell.
