This Masquerade is a song written and originally recorded by American singer and musician Leon Russell in 1972. In 1973 American vocal duo, the Carpenters, made their recording for the album Now & Then and also as the B-side of the single Please Mr. Postman. This cover made great success just as the next one – jazz version of American guitarist and singer George Benson in 1976.
