Leon Russell and New Grass Revival 1980 live concert

Posted by Richard on April 29, 2018

A friend recently shared with a bunch of us a YouTube link to a fine album by the Dillards with Byron Berline, and that got me looking for some tasty bluegrass by New Grass Revival (with the incomparable Sam Bush) to share back. I happened upon this amazing hour-long concert video.

It starts with Leon solo doing Judy Garland as only Leon can. And then he and New Grass Revival proceed to romp through about every genre you can think of: Beatles, bluegrass, country, gospel, rock, pop… They do “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” like you’ve never heard it before. The set is fantastic, and the encores are even better. Enjoy!
