We recently received a record player and our first record purchase was “Coming Home” by Leon Bridges. Our children, who are ages 1,3, 5, and 7 all love the album and we listen through the whole thing at least once a week (they each have a favorite Leon song, which they expertly turn during our listens). It’s excellent top to bottom.
Leon is up for a Grammy tomorrow night, and here’s a very good reason why.
