And The Shelter People
Stockholm 1971 [no label, 1CD]

North Country Fair” TV Show, Stockholm, Sweden; November 26, 1971. Very good mono soundboard (from TV broadcast).

Thanks to CoolSonics and to kneesfudd for sharing the show at Dime.


- Warts: About 20 minutes in middle has some quite low level static. The worst was removed and it is not problematic - would take insane work to remove entirely (even by my standards), so you’ll have to eat it. No fears, a minor quibble, as it sounds EXC!
- Live in TV studio before an audience.
- Only Leon live “George Jackson” I know of and absolutely stunning. Leon played bass on Dylan’s big band studio 45 version on 1971-11-04. Bob’s ‘71 tribute to the Black Panther leader, who’d been recently killed by San Quentin Prison guards (which indirectly sparked the Attica Prison riots).
- Track 5 “I Got The Blues” could just be Leon making it up as he goes along.

  7. leon was always one of my favorites his first album is a classic and the next four or five are excellent. he was an amazing piano player, aside from Dr. John, theres really no one else who can play that mixture of blues gospel and rock. its always a pleasure to listen to his recordings.
