Revising his Hank Wilson persona, Leon Russell has emerged once again as a county artist on this album. As the third volume in a series that started in the 1970s, this is one of the most well-produced country albums ever. Legend in My Time rocks too, with such covers as the searing "Sixteen Tons" and "Okie From Muskogee." On the ballad side, a version of Willie Nelson's "Night Life" pretty much blows every other version away. Leon Russell is one of the most gifted and versatile musicians of the past 50 years, and here is another reason why.
