Thank you, thank you, thank you. I have been looking for the names of Leonard's early backup singers for years and could never find them. I still see them in my mind's eye; they were always beautiful. I knew that Jenny Warnes (a goddess) was one of them, but I remember many more. Just didn't know their names. I am totally surprised, however, to see that Laura Brannigan (another goddess) was one of his backup singers. What a shame her untimely death... Thank you Jarkko for this list. :D
