Best Redbone Release Out There
K. Brown | Walnut, Ca USA | 08/18/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"His music is entertaining, but this is the Leon Redbone album that stands above the others. You get a good mix of mellow old tunes like "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone," to the upbeat "Champagne Charlie" and "Alabama Jubilee."

I especially enjoyed his almost solemn tone in "Sweet Sue" and "Big Bad Bill." "Big Bad Bill" is a silly and endearing song about a burly Terror of the Town who is humbled and tamed by his wife, and only Redbone could bring out the humor by singing it at such a snail-pace.

As much as I enjoyed several other Leon Redbone CDs, the tracks tend to blend into one another after awhile, and I found this album to be such a dramatic exception. I don't think I could ever hate a Leon Redbone album, but "Champagne Charlie" is the only one of his releases I would rave about.
