No it may not sound like B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Delbert McClinton, John Lee Hooker or even Eric Clapton. And, no it may not sound a whole lot like early Leon Russell. But, all of this begs the question(s) why would Leon want to do and why would you want to buy more of what has already been done?
Technically, this IS the blues. As a listening experience it is fabulous. This CD has never been put away since I bought it, and the longer I have it the more frequently it gets played.
Also - a note to musicians - this is a FUN album to play along with! Sure, I listen to it, but I often grab a guitar or bass and jam along.
Leon deserves all the five stars he gets on this.

Finally, Leon has cast his demons aside and made some great music. With the exception of "Legend in My Time", Leon Russell fans have had to endure some very mediocre CDs for a long time. Now Leon is back! Standouts include "Rip Van Winkle" (Leon's sense of humor is back), "Dark Carousel" (yes, Leon knows melody), "Strange Power of Love" (the blues), and "The Same Old Song" (big band jazz). I've always thought Leon to be one of the most talented musicians in the music industry. He just seemed to collapse after the breakup with Mary. Now, if you want to hear some great blues,rock,and jazz in one CD, give the old man a chance and listen to what he's playing.

Even if this wasn't as fine a collection of blues as it is, you still should get it for "This Masquerade" masquerading as "The Same Old Song" with an upped tempo and new lyrics. This is good Russell, and that means good music.
In an interview a long time ago Mr. Russell said, and I'm paraphrasing: When I want to hear a good song I sit down and write one.
He's done a batch of them here.

This is a great CD with all new songs. It has been sold at his shows prior to this release. Leon demonstrates continued proficiency on the guitar as well as the piano. Impressive! Many of these songs are incorporated into his live shows.
A must for blues lovers, guitar lovers, and Leon lovers.
