Leon Russell & New Grass Revival’s THE LIVE ALBUM (Paradise, PAX-3532) was recorded and videotaped on 5/15/80 at Perkins Palace in Pasadena, CA. Leon on keyboard and lead vocals is supported by Sam Bush (mandolin, fiddle, backing vocals), Courtney Johnson (banjo, backing vocals), John Cowan (bass, backing vocals), and Curtis Burch (guitar, dobro, backing vocals). Also appearing: Bill Kenner (mandolin) and Ambrose Campbell (percussion).
