Leon Redbone Champagne Charlie on 200g LP from Exhibit Records

Mastered for LP by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio / Pressed at QRP

Blending ragtime blues, honky tonk harmonies, vaudevillian echoes and a musical persona entirely his own, Leon Redbone's 1978 release Champagne Charlie is a tour de force from one of the most mercurial, magical and talented artists in modern music. One of the distinguishing factors on the record is the fine choice of material, which ranges from Jelly Roll Morton to Jimmie Rogers. 

As is usual with a Leon Redbone release, the fare is lighthearted and tinged with nostalgia, and sweetened by antique arrangements. And the band here is absolutely delightful, filled with jubilant horns, oboes, trumpets, strings and, of course, Redbone's rich baritone and throwback acoustic guitar shine. 

Produced by Joel DornChampagne Charlie is filled with the best that Dixie, Delta blues and ragtime jazz has to offer keeping true to the old style that made these songs so popular to begin with. Leon has a sort of irreverent, off beat approach to these old jazz classics that is just plain fun to listen to.
