Performer Notes
  • Personnel includes: Leon Russell (vocals, piano); Don Preston, Carl Radle, Chuck Blackwell, Chris Stainton, Jim Price, Jim Keltner, Jesse Ed Davis, Jim Gordon.
  • Leon Russell's second album, LEON RUSSELL & THE SHELTER PEOPLE, has the feel of a rollicking road show. In fact, many of the players who appear here had been out on the road under Russell's direction as Joe Cocker's backing band, Mad Dogs & Englishmen (a fact chronicled on this album in "The Ballad of Mad Dogs and Englishmen"). The original album was made up of eight Russell originals, two Bob Dylan covers, and a song by George Harrison (an incredible version of "Beware of Darkness"). This CD reissue has been extended to include three additional Dylan covers. The variety--country, gospel, blues, soul, and rock & roll--is seamlessly woven together by Russell's good-natured Oklahoma twang. The set is paced to move and groove listeners in a way that is reminiscent of an old fashioned revue. In addition, LEON RUSSELL & THE SHELTER PEOPLE is anchored by some of the finest rhythm sections, soloists, and chorus singers of the time.
Professional Reviews
Musician (3/96, p.90) - "...Much of SHELTER PEOPLE rocks, most of it captures the hair-raising power of his shows back then..."
