How in the fuck could anyone into pop music of the last half of the 20th century never hear of Leon?
Luigi, you really should tend to some of your comments, as there are many bad links & tracks scattered about this blog.

Luigi,

You know Leon's work from the Carpenters' covers of both Superstar & A Song For You. Also, you have Bette Midler's first LP which has the most intimate & sensual version of Superstar. Also Helen Reddy does a very credible version of A Song For You. Whitney Houston gave it a less successful dance-y sound. And also you will know Leon from all the covers of his This Masquerade, also covered by the Carpenters & Helen Reddy.
