Leon rocks my world.
I just saw him in St. Louis. He is just as awesome as he was when I grew up in Tulsa.
I used to drive past his house in Tulsa just to peek at him

I saw Leon last Thursday 4-13-06 at Harrahs in St. Louis. I grew up seeing Leon in Tulsa. Leon is best in Tulsa. He puts on a better show at home. I will agree. He is better in Tulsa. I cant wait to see him at the Wildwod Springs Lodge in September.

Hey Leon
I don't know if you see this stuff, but if you do thanks so much for all the great music over the years. I'm 57 and saw you in your prime. I've seen your concerts years ago here in St.Louis, Mo. In fact, I've seen you in concert more than I've seen anyone. You inspired my good friend to play piano and today he really plays. Take Care my man.......Rob

Dear Mr. Russell
I remember listing to your music back in the 70's, I just forgot how much
I enjoyed your music. I'm just an Island girl and your music gives me such
a good feeling about where I am now in my life as it did in the 70's..
Thanks so much. I was glad to find
a web site for you. I just wanted to find out if you were still out there
creating good music. I'll have to find
some of your more current releases.

Mahalo and Aloha from a dedicated
Leon fan.

For so many of us, Leon's music has been a touchstone throughout our lives, underscoring the good times and easing the bad ones. He's like an old, good friend; no matter how long it's been since you last saw him, he'll welcome you with a hug and intuitively know where you're at.

Keep an eye on his tour schedule on this web site, and see if you can catch him on your next trip to the main land. You'll love it.

Leon, thanks for another Great Show at Peach's Grill in Yellow Springs, Ohio on 4/15/06! It is always a Pleasure to hear you and the band. I particularly liked your version of Wild Horses, and Out in the Woods is always great. Hope to see you come through Ohio again on your next tour.
Take Care and Good Health!

thanks for another opportunity to see you perform your music in Yellow Springs, OH. It was a pleasure for my husband and our four friends to be there and show our support to you and the band for getting out there and bringing your music to us.. We LOVED it!! Especially me. I have loved your music and poetic lyrics.... forever. Your CDs are like one of those movies that people can watch over and over, I could probably leave Leon CDs in my car, listen to them a trillion times and never get tired of them. I hope to see the show again in Owensboro, Ky. THANKS THANKS THANKS and take care!

Hello Leon,

First I have to admitthat you`re one of mine nearest inspirators of my past two years.

I first noticed you when I came allong Maddogs and Englishmen.. I can`t describe the feeling that took control of me when I first saw and heard you playing.

I felt like coming home.. altough I know we don`t know eachother, and the odds aren`t that succesfull .. so I know it sadly won`t ever happen.

I just bought the DVD where you played with Willie Nelson andother great musicans.. and the last thing I want to say to you is that I went trough a tough and dark hell for two years.. and kow I see the light again.. and the funny thing is that I now have a new inspirator named Leon Russel.. the man who made me see and feel the joy of playing with `y haert without losing your thhird eye and ear.. you shook my world!!

Greetz..

been a fan since the Mad Dogs and Englisman's tour with Joe Cocker in the early 70's....won some money over the years stumping people on music trivia who didn't know you produced albums for Gerry Lewis & the Playboys...in the past when you'd play Gillys in Dayton I'd always be crying some auction event or judging some horse show (and have done both at the Tulsa State Fair)...but tonight I'm free and going to be in Yellow Springs to finally see and hear in person Leon Russell.

WOW, saw Leon and band last night and it was the best show I've seen in many, many years, perfect small venue, great gruop of fans and so much fantastic music. You made our group of old hippies feel young again! Leon you are the best,we have always loved your music and can't wait for you to come back to Indy.

Dear Leon,
Where do I start? You've heard all this many times before. Do you get tired of it? Well, I recently saw you at The Melting Point in Athens, Georgia. I was the long haired guy in the front about to cry! (wait, maybe I'd better narrow that down!) I first heard you in Joe Cocker's band (damned shame about Jim Gordon.), then a friend turned me on to Asylum Choir (what happened to Marc Benno? I hope he's well.), then The Concert For Bangladesh, then the Carny album, then the Wedding album and on and on...
Leon, thank you for not leaving us. Like Janis, like Jimi, and on and on...THANK YOU!
Two last things. Were you not invited to participate in the Concert For George? Damned shame. Also, I have written a letter to The Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. Your time will come. We will all see to it.
I love you madly. Happy Easter!
Peace,
Dickie Cox

There was, of course, George Benson's version of "This Masquerade," and I think Jimmy Buffett recently recorded "Back To The Island."

Dickie Cox Friday, April 14, 2006 01:23
Karen Carpenter and Ella Fitzgerald also did a duet of "This Masquerade" on one of The Carpenter's television specials.

Hi!
Go to amazon.com, search for Leon Russell and then select the dvd grouping. There is a Bluegrass revival, A Song for you and more.
Hope this helps!

Any More? I am familiar with at least 75 versions of this song. Everyone from Aretha,Simply Red,Herbie Hancock,Willie but Ray Charles's version is exceptional. People as diverse as Cocker,Carpenters,Cher,Natalie Cole,Carmen McRae, Woody Herman, Peabo Bryson, Phil Driscoll have all covered the song
