Classic Debut Album Reissued on Vinyl LP Features Guest Artist Joe Venuti!
Album Cover Designed by Animator Chuck Jones!

Third Man Records is proud to announce the release of jazz and roots legend Leon Redbone's debut album On the Track. The news of the Third Man release follows the recent announcement of Leon Redbone's retirement from both public appearances and recording.

On the Track – Leon Redbone's debut LP – was originally issued on Warner Brothers Records in 1975 and is reissued exclusively on vinyl by Third Man Records. Long Way From Home was recorded in 1972 by Dave Benders for WBFO Radio at the University of Buffalo and features some of the earliest known Leon Redbone recordings.

On The Track is among the most remarkable debut albums of 1975 or any other year, a reverent and remarkably authentic revival of late 19th century and early 20th century popular music, spanning Roaring Twenties radio ditties, Depression-era ragtime, the folk-jazz of World War II, and still-sung favorites by songwriters like Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael & Johnny Mercer, Fats Waller, Al Dubin & Harry Warren, Lonnie Johnson, and Jimmie Rodgers. The album – which sees Redbone accompanied by such studio luminaries as drummer Steve Gadd, percussionist Ralph MacDonald, and the great double bassist Milt Hinton – was an across-the-board success, reaching #83 on Billboard’s overall “Top LPs & Tape” chart amidst widespread critical acclaim. TMR’s exclusive vinyl reissue of ON THE TRACK comes in a 12” single pocket, direct-to-board replica of the original Warner Bros. Records release, with classic cover art featuring a Chuck Jones illustration of Merrie Melodies star Michigan J. Frog.
