Leon Redbone...my brother, for some reason, had that album on the left, way back in mid-seventies. Ha - Steve Gadd drums on it. No shock there, either Gadd or Jim Gordon drummed on everything then. Don McLean plays banjo. I love the old standards Leon does. The cover art is by the great Charles Martin "Chuck" Jones, most noted for Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies shorts for the Warner Bros. Cartoons studio. He directed Bugs, Daffy, Road Runner, and Wile E., Sylvester, and Pepe. He adpated How the Grinch Stole Christmas for TV. As for Leon Redbone (born Dickran Gobalian, August 26, 1949), he is a singer and guitarist specializing in contemporary and true interpretations of early 20th-century music, of jass and blues standards and classics. Redbone has released approximately 15 albums and once had a sizable cult following. His shtick is his claiming to have written works originating well before his time. And he sang the theme to the television series Mr. Belvedere. Who knew?
