Legend in My Time: Hank Wilson Vol. III

Genre: Country; Lead Performer: Leon Russell

In his 40-year career, ragged-voiced piano-pounder Russell has run the gamut from Phil Spector sessionman to a hit writer (George Benson’s ”This Masquerade”). Here he revisits his C&W alter ego, Hank Wilson, with a roundup of time-tested standards, including a duet of ”Okie From Muskogee” with Willie Nelson. On Legend in My Time: Hank Wilson Vol. III, Ol’ Greybeard and his ace band sound like they’re having a blast at their favorite honky-tonk. B+
