Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Retrospective is an 18-track collection that features the bulk of Leon Russell's greatest hits "Tight Rope," "Roll in My Sweet Baby's Arms," "Lady Blue," "Back to the Island", plus many key album tracks. Since Russell was primarily an album artist, this approach doesn't necessarily do him justice, but for listeners who only want the hits, this will do. However, the double-disc Gimme Shelter: The Best of Leon Russell is a better, more thorough overview and is the one serious fans should acquire.
