Editorial Reviews

Leon's romantic collaboration with his new wife Mary continued on into the recording studio, with her voice helping him to go Top 40 with his first Paradise LP. Bobby Womack's on hand, too!

I've been waiting for many years for this album to be released on CD. My sisters and I know every word to every song, and this Christmas was made all the more special when I surprised them both with this 1976 favorite. From the bass beat of the opening track ("Rainbow in Your Eyes") to the island rhythm of "Love's Supposed to Be That Way" to the sultry "Satisfy You," Leon and Mary don't fail to satisfy. I don't know how long their marriage lasted, but it was worth it if only to put out this collection of love songs. Their harmonies are mesmerizing, and you will HAVE to dance to many of these tracks. Yes, there are a couple of schmaltzy ones in the mix, but overall, it's an amazing collection of work. You can tell they were crazy about each other.

Leon is one of my all time unsung heroes, I have all the albums and have seen him live on several occasions. The Wedding Album was a constant car tape when it first came out and I am blasted that we meet up again. The tracks are sheer exuberant honky tonk good times and the pairing was truly inspirational. Leon at his finest, put it on replay and learn to love this warm strong rocker, the vocals and backing are just awesome. On a goood system they rattle the rafters and send your spirits up there too!! YES You love this album in a place where there's no space or time!

I have been searching for this on LP for the last 28 years. Someone "borrowed" mine from my collection. Most places I contacted had never heard of it. Some looked at me like I was crazy. I have told my wife about this album and the version of "Daylight". Now finally she can hear what I have been searching for. This is one of the most soulful albums every produced (have over 5000 albums in collection, know what I'm talking about). Buy it while you caan!!

This album was not exactly a chart-topper when it was released, but when I listened to it back when, I was instantly hooked by the great harmony between Leon and Mary. The back and forth, both vocally and instrumentally, as they both play a mean piano, is captivating. The lyrics on this disc reveal their emotions and tell the story of their "Wedding". Anyone who digs Leon Russell will love this album, he sounds upbeat and excited to be singing with Mary, who has her own style and unique voice. A rare find, as I have been looking on Amazon and other sites for over a year and when it surfaced, I grabbed it up immediately. Highly recommended for all Leon fans!

Love this album. Since purchasing it, I have listened to it over and over and haven't tired of it. I remember hearing it as a child in the 70's on my parents' turntable, and am enjoying revisiting it as an adult. Russell purists may balk at the inclusion of his then-wife, but I find it adds another layer to his genius.

At last the wait is over for one of Leon's great albums. Leon and Mary sing beautifully on this album and there are some fine songs. Surely 'Rainbow in your Eyes' would be a great duet for some quality artists? 'Windsong' must rate with others like 'Hummingbird', even 'A song for you'. 'Quiet Nights' is such a beautiful acknowledgement of a child. I urge you to buy this while it is still available, as I did. Like many others I have searched for this on CD for years and now I have it!!. By the way, It was so good to see Leon in Sydney, Australia a few weeks ago - after a wait of about 40 years for me.

After the release of his excellent Will O' the Wisp Leon Russell wed his backup singer Mary McCreary and the pair commemorated the event with a duet album between the two of them. One of the most exciting parts of the album is not only do the two share vocals on this album but Mary herself i a very active participant in this music with her new husband,playing synthesizer and percussion quite often and creating these beautifully elaborate choruses of backround vocals as well as her leads. The spirit of sharing and mutual cooperation,an intregal componant of any marriage lends itself here as a musical element as well. Musically this album embrases styles Leon always had in his music as this is a full out funk-soul/R&B album with the textural synthesizers are enlarged in number,mixed far higher in the music and the melodic/harmonic arrangments of the music are more complex and elaborate. These songs are not in fact all too seperated from what you might find on a Stevie Wonder,Smokey Robinson or Ashford & Simpson recordings of the period. The introductory song,the romantic "Rainbow In Your Eyes" is one of the very strongest and romantic songs Leon ever wrote. The melodic keyboard/synth sound carries the song along with the intricate melody and it was so strong Al Jarreau covered the song very quickly on his album Glow of the same year,also opening the album with that song as well. The swelling "Love's Supposed To Be That Way",the cosmic sounding "Fantasy","Satisfy You" and "You Are On My Mind" all maintain the exact same level of quality and dynamic arrangements.Read more ›
