  • Credits

    Though dismissed by some as a novelty act (his moustache, funny hats, and outsized sunglasses don't help matters), Leon Redbone is in fact an excellent entertainer with a penchant for early-20th-century blues, ragtime, and vaudeville-flavored tunes. While his studio albums occasionally suffer from unevenness, CHAMPAGNE CHARLIE, a compilation, is solid through and through.
    As usual with Redbone, the fare is lighthearted and tinged with nostalgia, and sweetened by antique arrangements and Redbone's ragged vocals. One of the distinguishing factors here is the fine choice of material, which ranges from Jelly Roll Morton ("If Somebody Would Only Love Me") to Jimmie Rogers ("T.B. Blues"). Each performance is loaded with charm, making CHAMPAGNE CHARLIE an irresistible listen, and a great first purchase for those interested in discovering this enigmatic musician.
