In Session – Glen Campbell & Leon Russell – 1983
This set was recorded at CHCH TV in Hamilton, Ontario for the In Session program. Aside from that – I cannot find any additional information!
But it is well-worth watching.
It might surprise some people to discover just how great Campbell was on the guitar.
Or that he started out his long career as ‘a member of the famed Wrecking Crew—an informal collective of highly sought-after studio musicians—he played on literally thousands of songs throughout the decade, many of them hits.’ See Glen Campbell, Session Man: Remember the Music Icon with These 10 Hits You Didn’t Know He Played On
Leon Russell is well-known for his master musicianship with a dozen great albums, but perhaps many people are not familiar with his foray into straight country as Hank Wilson.
Both musicians not only play like hell but have a great time as well.
Please note: The end credits run in the middle of the Youtube video but the rest of the program follows shortly afterward.
