musRev – uses beauty like a knife

the early 70’s – my sister was a big leon russell fan – it would be a few years before I warmed up to his music but eventually i grew to love the shelter people album.  i have a vivid memory of watching a special on PBS with my sister, the first part was Cat Stevens doing his stuff, the second part was a Leon Russell in the studio kind of thing.  I did not find out until recently – about an hour ago actually – that the Russell show was called the Homewood Sessions and was taped in Homewood Studios in Nashville.  the vid below is a two parter, starting with Crystal Closet Queen and ending with Of Thee I Sing. These songs on this show have been rattling around in my head for years and it was great to see them again…
