There are a lot of older videos that I do not yet have and have not yet seen -- so I am delighted to see this.

CarolineM - I posted this wonderful video on my FaceBook a few days ago and BurningViolin pointed out the skinny dipper sailing into the water in the background. I had not noticed. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Also, I was searching around for information about this TV appearance by Leonard and somewhere I read that he also did "Tower of Song." Any chance you might have that video as well. :lol: :lol:

If you do - any chance you could put it here? "Pleeeeeeeeeese" (TM Roscoe Beck). :lol: :lol:

Thanks so much CarolineM for uploading this so us blocked people can see it. And thank you sturgess for alerting me! It worked at last :) And finally I understand why it is blocked in some countries :lol:
Hard to keep a straight face even for the man himself... Loved it!

CarolineM,

Thank you so much! I watched the video on Facebook but didn't realize it had come from you. What a find!!!! There was an incredible chemistry between Leonard, Julie and Perla. It lasted throughout their entire time together but it is one of those "things" that can never be repeated. Over the past year and a half of the current tour, "someone" has been wise enough to suggest more of an intimacy in certain songs between Leonard and the Webb sisters. It actually plays off well in a couple of songs...the age difference even accentuating it. BUT.....there is NOTHING like the electricity between Leonard, Julie and Perla! As lovely and sublime as Hattie and Charley are....Perla and Julie were women, with a man....whew!

As much as I love the pairing now, it would be incendiary to see LC in concert just one more time with Julie and Perla....just one time! I would travel anywhere for that!!

Both videos are great - especially "I'm Your Man".

Many many thanks.
