Leon was a premier entertainer and musician whose career spanned on many decades. Many people love his music, but some people are not aware that he began his career as a studio musician and sideman. Even through his musical life at the front of the stage, Leon also enjoyed a busy second life as a sideman. So Trick's Synthetic Countdown pulled together a dozen of great examples of Leon Russell's sideman work.
This month we celebrate the music of the '60's and '70's, as if it were ever anything else, with this special Classic Covers Countdown for September!
