The long awaited "Life Journey " is here and well worth the wait. I find myself searching for the right words, to express my complete joy with this offering. Leon Russell reaches the highest of high, with some wonderful songs, and exciting arrangements. Russell hits the piano like he has always has done, and takes the listener on a great journey. I have been a long time fan of his music, like so many others. Leon hits the spot light, with the first song to the last.
"Come On In My Kitchen" is a excellent song to open the record- a blues number that Leon grabs your attention with, and takes the song to that special place. "Big Lip" is a fun song that he recorded on a record maybe 10 years ago, and i always have enjoyed this blues song as well.
"Georgia On My Mind: what a great song for Russell to feature on this special recording. I have heard Leon sing this in concert for the last 5 years or so, very happy he included the song here. "That Lucky Old Sun" what a classic song, This is tailored made
for Russell.
"Fever" never a favorite song of mine- but the arrangements, and Leon on piano just likely will change my mind.
"I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over" what a excellent song. Of course my mind goes back to "This Masquerade" Leon classic song. Here he explore some wonderful lyric, and the songs just takes you away. I like the phrasing, could it be a coincidence that
Russell selected this song- probably not.
"New York State Of Mind" really like this song, like so many others. Billy Joel must have a big smile on his face, Russell makes it
his own. A very intimate version of a song covered by so many other artist. Leon voice is perfect for the arrangement.

It almost sounds like Leon plans to end his recording career but only time will tell and with his latest album he is making sure that if it is the end that he ends it on a high note for sure. This latest project is right up there with everything else he has done as far as songs and production. Though I feel Leon has done a great job with every track, I have to say that my favorites are the two songs he wrote himself, "Big Lips" and "Down In Dixieland". This album comes complete with some of that old time Leon Russell gospel soundin' shoutin' and howlin' and screamin' and hollarin' that I use to love to hear him do. Thank you Leon for this latest recording and all the albums you have ever put out. You deserve to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for more than just being a sideman, but for the artist you are!!!!

LIfe Journey brings us back to Leon Russell in full tilt. The instrumentation is flawless and his voice carries the album. The songs range across many genres and each is executed with perfection. There are some classic standards on here that are second to none. Life Journey shows Leon Russell at his finest and demonstrates the incredible diversity of his work.

His rendition of Georgia on My Mind is, now, my favorite. Sorry, Willie, you have been usurped. I preordered this CD. I love all things Leon, and I am not disappointed. Oklahoma twang with a Nola raunchiness in the tempo...perfect... Buy this. See him if you are able. And, a message to Mr. Russell...

Thank you, Leon. Thanks for walking with me through the darkness and the light.

And bless Elton John too, for continuing to promote/support the great Leon Russell...and this may be the best album Leon's ever done.

Then, if you're ready to journey with Leon, here's my suggestion: a) pour some good bourbon (or scotch, if you have to) into a glass; b) tell anyone around to go away; c) put on head/ear phones if you have 'em; d) turn the lights down or off; and e) let 'er rip.

Damn, this is amazing music from an amazing singer. Haven't spent money this well in a long time!

The title of Leon Russell's newest CD seems to indicate this 50+ years Master of all aspects of music is slowing down and liner notes imply he may not be offering any future efforts. I certainly hope not. This CD is absolute gem, is beautiful (an understatement) and quite unique and different than all of his previous CD's
I love Leon and his music and this CD is Awesome!
