This album was not exactly a chart-topper when it was released, but when I listened to it back when, I was instantly hooked by the great harmony between Leon and Mary. The back and forth, both vocally and instrumentally, as they both play a mean piano, is captivating. The lyrics on this disc reveal their emotions and tell the story of their "Wedding". Anyone who digs Leon Russell will love this album, he sounds upbeat and excited to be singing with Mary, who has her own style and unique voice
