    Wow – nice find Hope! A #7 hit on the RCA label for Leon from June 1982.

    Leon recorded for the small “Orlando” label in the late 1970’s finally scoring a top ten hit with “Over” in mid-1980 (His BEST song in my book) RCA signed him and he added 7 more big hits through early 1984. Unfortunately no CD compilation of his hits has ever been released. Too bad because he had some truly great songs.

    Like Ken, I regret that there isn’t anything available by Leon Everette on CD . Over time I’ve accumulate everything he released that made the top 30, plus a couple of his RCA albums. My personal favorites are “Hurricane” and “Midnight Rodeo” but everything I’ve heard from him has been worthwhile

    He apparently is still actively performing and has a website (which is not terribly current) and he has released a religious album in the last few years that is available from his website

    Funny, this is the first I’ve ever heard of the guy.
    Seems to have a bit of Marty Robbins influence–in his vocalizing and in the way he holds his guitar!
    Don’t know why he didn’t make it bigger–Maybe he got lost in the shuffle.

    The UK based Cherry Red/Morello label will release a 2-CD set on July 21, 2017 with three of Leon’s albums plus 5 tracks from his 1983 mini-album. It will include all of Leon’s significant chart singles for the Orlando and RCA labels.
