Leon Redbone, “Long Way from Home”
Label: August Records Inc
Reviewed by: Kim Walter, June 2017

Early recordings of legendary blues/jazz musician, Leon Redbone. These date from 1972, and you can already hear his unique mix of prewar jazz, folk and blues that has been inspiring musicians for over four decades Best for me: 2, 3, 4, 6, 13, 14, 16, 17.

1. slow/med – old style blues
2. slow – cowboy ballad, yodels at end.
3. slow – harmonica, classic cowboy song with yodeling, “TB Blues”
4. med – upbeat finger picking song, advice to being happy
5. med – fun, kazoo, some scat
6. slow – vocals and guitar
7. slow – classic blues, voice & guitar
8. slow – Mississippi River blues style
9. slow – blues
