The earliest selections Before You Go by Bobby Vee and The Loser (With A Broken Heart) by Gary Lewis & the Playboys, both from Leon's time as producer Snuff Garrett's right-hand man, Raspberry Rug by Bobby Whitlock and the Beatles-flavoured Land Of Oz by Le Cirque were all released before his name became well known to the public, although he was already established as one of the leading session musicians on the Los Angeles recording scene".
