Short note re: RAH Nov 17 - Boogie Street was sung by Sharon herself, without Leonard (he just stood there with the hat on his heart).

I don't know how it was on other shows - during Summer tour, they sang it as duet (except for her intro, as on the album version), later he started to give the complete verses over to her, now it's obviously only her.

At Cardiff he sang back up for the song with the sisters and was also holding his hat against his chest. It was Sharon's solo and the spotlight and the cameras were on her. When I saw him on the Summer tour the song was performed as a duet very similar to the album version. I liked hearing a different version of the song and Sharon does a wonderful job of it. :D

First post on site so bear with me.
I attended MEN on Sunday 30th and was blown away by the man and his band. I've been a fan for years (first heard Suzanne covered by Neil Diamond in the early 70s). Anyway, I thought he sang Take This Longing as well but I could be wrong!
