U Gotta Get This CD!
(4 out of 5 stars)
"If you were alive any time during the past 30 years, then you gotta get this CD. This is the best thing Leon has done since The Shelter People, with the possible exception of Hank Wilson's Back Vol. 1. Leon isn't simply using these tunes to knock on your heart and ask to get in; Leon IS these songs, and they are already in your heart asking to get out. If you can play this CD and not sing along and not find yourself mumbling the songs under your breath the next day, then all I can say is, "Wake UP!" I'm a long time fan of the Stones, Led Zep, Beatles, Neil Young, Joe Cocker, and Leon, as well as George Jones, Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, et. al. Imagine Mick Jagger singing a Jones tune, Imaging Robert Plant crooning out Patsy Cline, hear The Beatles play bluegrass. You never have. 'Probably never will. But hearing Leon Russell sing country more than makes up for it. But this CD. Drink beer. Sing along. Cry along. Tell your buddies. Buy this CD."

"What can I say, it's Leon Russell. If you love the previous two Hank Wilson albums you're gonna love this one, too. Personally I can't get enough Leon Russell music. I am biased because to me this is soul music. Some of these selections are a bit more contemporary than the previous albums and that's OK although I prefer the standards."
Put this horse out to pasture, and out of my misery...

"I grew up with Leon Russell, and have worn out every copy of Hank Wilson's Back I ever owned.
Did someone drag this guy kicking, and screaming out of retirement, and into the studio?
Do your wallet a favor, and listen to Hank Wilson's Back one more time, and forget this waste of money.
Its sounds like he is sleep walking through the entire session, doing duets on songs that were never meant to be anything but solo.
I don't take into consideration songs like "He stopped loving her today" because nobody could ever measure up to No show Jones on that one.
Please leave this guy alone, and for heaven sakes don't let him sing anymore. At least not within range of a microphone.
Hank Wilson doing "Crazy" was certainly nuts.
It goes immediately back in the case, and should make a handsome coaster for my coffee cup.
