Re: leon russell fans? I'm with Jack in the Box about "mad dogs and englishman" last year I returned to the album and movie after a long absence and I think it's a GREAT artifact of that era and Russell really does shine. it's odd that he's so obscure now. most people know Dr. John better. now, maybe that's just but it's easy to forget how HUGE Russell was and a little sobering. I still hear 'tightrope' now and then but little else. didn't he have hits and stuff with his wife for a while? seems like he did.
