Nights At The Roundtable - Leon Russell - 1972

Nights at the Roundtable with Leon Russell and his non-lp/45-rpm only Christmas single "Slipping Into Christmas" from 1972.

<strong>Leon Russell - one of the greatest Christmas songs almost nobody has ever heard of.</strong>


I think we are literally looking at 12 days until Christmas. Uh-oh. Okay, it took me by surprise this year. So as a way of getting up to speed, here's something you may not have heard in a very-very long time, if ever.

Leon Russell and his lone Christmas single from 1972. Slipping Into Christmas was, for some unknown reason, never available on an lp, compilation or any reissue. Only released as a 45 and only released in 1972.

Go figure. It's a great song.

Leon Russell was (and still is) one of the great singer/songwriter/producers, whose career has taken a big upswing in recent years via his association with Elton John. It's a somewhat unlikely combination, but it's putting Russell back in the limelight where he's belonged.

So here is Leon Russell's contribution to the Christmas spirit.
