Leon Russell is not someone you hear about too much on classic radio but that’s a shame, considering how it seemed that he was everywhere in the 1970’s. Nonetheless, fans of his music love his work and they’ll love the fact his debut album has been remastered. Audio Fidelity are going to release a hybrid SACD of his 1970 debut which featured a wide range of special guests, including what sounds like a jam session from George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass album: Eric Clapton, Merry Clayton, Bonnie Bramlett, Steve Winwood, Joe Cocker, Ringo Starr, and Harrison himself. This carried him for a successful career throughout the 1970’s and new fans will be able to hear him again with this new pressing. Capitol Records in Japan released an SACD of this two years ago but this hybrid SACD is newly remastered so it is sonically different. Since this album was not mixed in quadraphonic, the hybrid mixes involve the stereo mix. The disc will be out on April 15th.
