A series of sell out concerts in the late 1980s celebrating the talented Leo De Castro reassured the reclusive Kiwi singer that his contribution to Australian music had not been forgotten.

Although the CD of those performances never made it to the street until 20-years later, it was testimony to his enduring vocal gymnastics. Then when he reappeared in concert in Hobart in 2008 it finally put to rest persistent rumours of his death.
