5.0 out of 5 stars The essence of a great songwriter October 23, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Signature Songs by Leon Russell reveals the essence of a great American songwriter. Like Bob Dylan, Leon Russell has been a creative force for over four decades. Signature Songs condenses the essential elements of Leon's creative genius by stripping away the distractions, leaving behind the most listen able recording ever by this living legend. Also like Dylan, while some of his songs are more perfectly fitted to another performer's (Dylan's All Along the Watchtower performed by Jimi Hendrix and Russell's A Song for You performed by Ray Charles) style, you can gain a better understanding of the message when the writer performs the material. Stranger in a Strange Land, Tight Rope, Magic Mirror, Out in the Woods, and A Song for You are some of the greatest compositions of our age. Hummingbird, Back to the Island, Lady Blue, and This Masquerade, are also wonderful compositions. They are all performed beautifully by Leon Russell on this CD. Leon reconnects with lifetime fans here by clarifying the genius behind the songs in a simple, finely appointed performance that captures the listener's attention over repeated sessions. Leon Russell is a living legend, and this is his finest work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure LEON! December 24, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is BY FAR the BEST I've heard from this master in years. Leon has spanned rock, country and many music styles. This CD is just Leon and Piano; it also proves he has stlye and grove! I've heard many Leon CD's and also live. This is a great example of Leon being himself in true form; much more than a greatest hits, soul and true as he has been in small club settings. I also have 4 more ratings on Leon and Hank Wilson but this is my fav. Thanks Leon and keep on rocking! Godspeed. rj

5.0 out of 5 stars DON'T OVERLOOK THIS! IT IS A SURPRISE! September 12, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Thankfully, this is not another "best of" CD with the original song versions. It is everyone's favorite Leon songs recently re-recorded in the studio. These "modern renditions" of these songs are very similar to the way that he does them live, only
much better! In following Russell's entire career, I can safely say that this is the most impressive piano work recorded to date!!! As a matter of fact, it is the most impressive piano work that I have ever heard..period! The vocals are crystal clear, clean, and very warm. Could possibly be his best vocal work as well. It is musically perfect and extremely delightful! Do yourself a favor and pick it up as fast as you can. You will love yourself for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Leon unplugged! September 11, 2001
Format:Audio CD
"Signature Songs" is the first nationally distributed release on the Leon Russell Records label, featuring (for the most part) just Leon and his piano. This is a redo of some of Russell's best material (all circa 1970-79), featuring several interesting new arrangements that incorporate variations he has employed over the years when performing these songs "live". Russell's vocals are an acquired taste, as his Okie rasp gets moreso with each passing year. Leon's piano playing, however, is exemplary & sounds much better than the canned, overdubbed & artificial synthesizer stuff he's been enamored with on his last several releases ("Face in the Crowd", "Crazy Love"). Russell has a distinctive playing style that's unmistakable and this album showcases his keyboard talents to great advantage.
Standout tunes include "Out in the Woods", "Magic Mirror", "Tight Rope" & "Stranger in a Strange Land". Although several cuts could have been improved with additional vocal takes,this album is still a winner, which should help to drum up interest in the slate of new music, vault material & re-issues Russell has planned for his label in the coming months. Definitely a recommended BUY!

4.0 out of 5 stars Still the master of space and time! September 21, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Leon Russell's latest release "Signature Songs" is a must for anyone who appreciates keyboard musicianship at its best. Leon sings and plays some of his biggest hits like "Delta Lady", "A song for You", "Tightrope" and many others in an unplugged format that leaves the listener wanting more. This is the ultimate Leon Russell after hours cd. Leon may walk with a cane these days, but his fingers on the ivory keys are as fast as ever. Let's hope all those baby boomers get up and out to the store to purchase this musical treat. Nice going Leon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Signature Songs December 6, 2001
Format:Audio CD
A truly special release from a true Master. Leon fans are given the rare opportunity of listening to some of his classics re-recorded and performed for the most part by just him and his piano. Excellent work, great listening. The only thing better would be a DVD release of just Leon and his piano.
