Leon Russell built his own recording studio in 1967, and recorded his first LP, Look Inside the Asylum Choir, in a collaboration with Marc Benno.

In 1971, Leon Russell appeared at George Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh, after recording sessions with B.B. King, Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan.

Leon Russell's 1975 album Will O'the Wisp was fairly commercially successful, as was its single "Lady Blue".
