AllMusic Review by

Best of Leon Russell (EMI-Capitol Special Markets) contains the bulk of his early-'70s hits recorded for the Shelter label and is a fine budget-line introduction for casual fans. Similar to Randy Newman, once you hear Leon singing his own material it becomes difficult not to equally appreciate his interpretations with the hit versions recorded by George Benson ("This Masquerade"), the Carpenters ("A Song for You"), and Joe Cocker ("Delta Lady").
