The Songs of Dom Leone (ERQ)

This is a compilation of Ed's Redeeming Qualities songs... Dom Leone was the principal songwriter of many of the groups songs, so this includes mainly songs that he wrote or co-wrote - many of them being treasured ERQ classics.

Some are ERQ performances; some appear to be Dom accompanied by guitar. Dom is the vocalist, except for three songs sung by Carrie Bradley and one sung by Jonah Winter.

Wow. Just stumbled in looking for this, and I must say thank you! Honestly one of my favorite songwriters ever, sad that he died so young.

This is the reason Al Gore invented the internet!
I'm a huge ERQ fan, and this is now the crown of my collection.

So happy to see this. I went to see ERQ a bunch of times in Boston in 88 / 89 and still have the t-shirt and tapes, they were a great live act - catchy tunes, simplicity, humor and a certain sweetness. It's wonderful that Dom's music is still stuck in our heads.

I heard an ERQ tune on the radio, fell in love with it, and was giving up hope of finding anything on the Web. Then this! My goodness - you really made my day. Thanks SO much. I see they recently had a reunion in Cambridge (Jan 2011). Too bad I missed it.

Yes; but Dan/Dani was Dom's cousin, not brother.
