Requested....
The Asylum Choir "Asylum Choir II" (US Rock 1971)

The Asylum Choir was the late-'60s duo of session keyboard player Leon Russell (b. April 2, 1942) and guitarist Marc Benno (b.July 1, 1947). They made two albums, 1968's Look Inside the Asylum Choir and Asylum Choir II. Though the latter was recorded in April 1969, it was not released until November 1971, due to contractual difficulties. By that time, Russell was an established solo star.
Of all Russell's early work as an artist, this record is perhaps the least essential; in particular, songs like "Tryin' to Stay Live" and "When You Wish Upon a Fag" feel dated. Nevertheless, Asylum Choir II is still a pretty nice record. Especially noteworthy is Russell's own version of "Hello, Little Friend"; Joe Cocker would later record the definitive version of the song. (The 1995 CD reissue features five bonus tracks). ~ Jim Worbois, All Music Guide

listen to 'Icicle Star Tree' --it is a near-perfect pop-psyche Toytown confection --done on west coast of USA! --the other cuts are tending toward great also, but in a more predictable soulful N'Orlins US rock bag!. {Yes LR is a monster talent]
