Easily on of my favorite albums of all time, it has soft simple relaxed feel that's hard to beat...My Walking Stick, Lazy Bones, Marie, LuLu's Back in Town--all the songs are good to excellent. It's the perfect music to put on in the background and see if you are noticing the lyrics. You will.

He also persuaded Chuck Jones to bring Michigan J. Frog out of retirement . . . too bad Leon never recorded "Michigan Rag."

Yeah, and not to mention Joe Venuti, who essentially CREATED the idea of jazz violin. A bit bigger name than the ones the Music Guide mentioned...geez....For Leon to get Venuti, even very late in his life, says something about Leon Redbone. Whataguy!!!

Ten years ago I had a cafe & had a couple of Leon Redbone CDs (don't remember which ones). Everyone enjoyed the easy-going, old-worldly, gentle times-gone- by style of Redbone. Then someone broke into my cafe & stole all my CDs, including the Redbone ones. It is only now I have bought On the Track to replace those lost CDs. Oh, I love the rythmic sound, his lovely voice, the instruments are so easy to listen to & catch one up in the rythm. Now my husband has discovered Leon Redbone & loves hiim. His favourite cut is "Marie." We are entranced with that throat tromnet - would like to see a picture of it. A favorite CD for both my husband & me.

There's no mistaking this voice- it is Leon through and through, but I didn't enjoy it as much as other albums. The tracks "My Walking Stick" and "Lazy Bones" were my favorites, and there are a couple of other decent tracks, but I don't feel like I'll be listening to this CD over and over.
