This was an outstanding writer/singer/entertainer from the 70's on. If I was smart enough I'd link a song or two. BUT alas---I'm not. Hopefully someone could do that. "A song for you"--"A hard rains gonna Fall"

I believe I have a longer version on DVD but this was on youtube. Its one of Willie Nelson's earlier picnics, 1974, and Leon is on it several times and is feeling no pain :lol: Its an hour and a half long, your warned! But a real step back in time. Back when they were playing and having fun playing.
