Another excerpt from the 1971 "Homewood Sessions" featuring Leon Russell and a few good friends such as Don Nix and Furry Lewis. Furry can be seen several times throughout the video.

This song is, in many people's opinion, one of the finest ballads ever written. I agree!

From the video,
Leon Russell & Friends - "Homewood Sessions"
Live at Vine Street Theater, Hollywood, California, USA.
-or-
"Vine Street Theater presents Homewood"

Originally aired in 1971 on PBS, actually KCET in Los Angeles at the Vine Street Theater on Hollywood and Vine, a theater with a little studio in the back part of the building, which is not there anymore. They shot 6 hours, but only broadcast 1 hour, unscripted and unrehearsed.

It was the first national "stereo" rock-and-roll TV broadcast - that's why Leon agreed to do it.

Billed as "Session - Leon Russell with a Few of His Friends":
Don Nix
Chuck Blackwell
Joey Cooper
Don Preston
Carl Radle
Kathi McDonald
Claudia Linnear
John Gallie
Jim Horn
Furry Lewis
and, of course, Sweet Emily
