The Neon Leon archives
While the Fullertons have been spreading the gospel according to Leon throughout southern Maine, his son Jazz Jones and nephews Raphie Gunn and Del Fullerton have been holed up in Del's basement making new recordings of Leon's music.
They've named their ensemble after Jazz's friend Obie, who deigned to play tambourine on several tracks: Meet Oberon O'Blivio and the Outcasts of Samarra - or the Outcasts, for short.
The project has, in their view, been necessitated due to a panoply claims, suits, counter-claims, and counter-suits lodged by protective family and far-flung ex-wives.*
The licensing of all of Leon Fullerton's original recordings therefore has been embargoed by the courts pending inquest and probate, to be revisited when statutes of limitations for truant troubadours have run their courses.
So if you can't get your hands on any old Fullerton pressings, find solace in these humble offerings. They might not be better than nothing - but what is?

* Fullerton frequently lamented that he hadn't flung them far enough. But his second wife, Trilby Canasta, testified before a judge in Saint Forbid Parish, Louisiana, that Fullerton wasn't particularly well-flung, himself.
Judging her a spiteful woman, Fullerton cut off all communication with her from that day forward. This would turn out to be unexpectedly easy, since he was never able to track her down after that.
