George Benson - This Masquerade mp3 flac

This Masquerade" is a song written by Leon Russell. The song first appeared on the B-side of the single for Russell's 1972 hit "Tight Rope". The song has also been recorded by many other artists, such as Helen Reddy, The Carpenters, Shirley Bassey, Sergio Mendes & Brasil '77, No Mercy, Robert Goulet, and Kenny Rogers. Possibly the most notable version of the song was a top-ten pop and R&B hit for jazz guitarist/vocalist George Benson, who recorded it on his 1976 signature album "Breezin'".

Album The George Benson Collection. This Masquerade Lyrics. Both afraid to say we're just to far away From being close together from the start We tried to talk it over but the words got in the way We're lost inside this lonely game we play. Thoughts of leaving disappear every time I see your eyes No matter how hard I try To understand the reasons why we carry on this way We're lost in a masquerade.

George Benson was a well-respected jazz guitarist when he released his album Breezin'. Most of the album was typical of his jazz guitar style, but this song, which was the only one on the album containing vocals, became his first hit. It set the stage for more popular vocal recordings by Benson. On the Breezin' album, this song runs 8:03. to the entire Warner Bros. body of shot callers," Pugh told us. The brass at the label (including Chairman Mo Ostin and President Joe Smith), were intrigued and swayed by support from Rosalie Trombley, the music director at the Windsor/Detroit radio station CKLW, who was ready to go "all out" on Benson's Breezin' album.
