Live in Japan 1973 / Live in Houston 1971 [Import]
- (United Kingdom - Import)
- Artist: Leon Russell
- Format: CD
- Release Date:7/25/2011
This release features a double helping of Leon Russell in concert in the seventies - half of it extremely rare and half previously unreleased. Leon Russell's profile has recently been raised as he was inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame and he enjoyed equal billing with Elton John on the pair's 2010 album "The Union". Elton and Leon subsequently performed live together to great acclaim. The first nine tracks were recorded at Tokyo's Budokan Hall in November 1973. These were previously released on a Japanese-only LP and have never before been released on CD. The other seven tracks were recorded at a concert in Houston in April 1971 and have never been released before in any form.
