I remember the first time I heard “Tight Rope.” I was with my father in his Beetle Bug and “Tight Rope” came on the radio. I thought it was a strange kind of song. like nothing they play on the radio.
I’ve been playing the “Carney” album and decided to do the cover. My version is “Leon The Caveman. “Which is really not too far from the real Leon.
If I have friends over and I put on a Leon Russell CD, I say, “and now, a couple of numbers from Leon.” Some people get the joke, some don’t.
