By putting in effort, the artist proved his capabilities and earned fame for being one of the best session musicians. Soon, well known names such as Phil Spector, Gary Lewis & the Playboys, Paul Rever & the Raiders got associated with him for their music productions. This was the start of the artist’s success story.
Although he remained in the background for almost ten years, Leon Russell made the most of this opportunity and learned a lot by simply observing people and practicing on his own. Earlier on he was hooked to guitar playing and chose the legendary artist James Burton to help him with the instrument. Apart from this, his friendship with Delaney Bramlett benefitted him with the art of playing the piano. Having a knowhow of the musical chemistry of instruments he was now confident about fitting his vocals to them in a better way. So the era of seventies introduced Leon Russell with a new identity as a lead singer. The famous Mad Dogs and Englishmen Tour featured the artist as a leading musician and he performed in live concerts for two months in United States. Shortly after the tour, Russell released an album that got an instant ranking at the second position on the Top Album Charts. This happened to be the launching pad for his solo career.
