  • LEON REDBONE RELEASES!

    Posted by Third Man on 5 December 2016

    ICONIC JAZZ-BLUES MUSICIAN'S PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED EARLY RECORDINGS
    COLLECTED ON 18-TRACK CD, DIGITAL, AND LP RELEASE

    NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN LIVE FOOTAGE FROM 1973 BUFFALO FOLK FESTIVAL STREAMING NOW

    LONG WAY FROM HOME AND ON THE TRACK BOTH OUT NOW

    "He's probably the best combination of singer-guitarist I've ever heard." — Bonnie Raitt

    It's official! We're pleased to announce the release of LONG WAY FROM HOME, the previously unreleased earliest recordings of legendary jazz-blues musician Leon Redbone. LONG WAY FROM HOME out on CD, digital, and LP on Friday, December 2nd and available TODAY. In addition and on the same day we will release an exclusive vinyl-only reissue of Redbone's classic debut album, ON THE TRACK, first released by Warner Bros in 1975.

    LONG WAY FROM HOME collects 18 tracks, the first eight of which are from a live performance at the end of 1972 at the University of Buffalo's coffee house. Dave Benders recorded the remaining 10 songs for a 1972 radio session for the University's WBFO. The compilation - comprising typically distinctive Redbone renditions of Tin Pan Alley and ragtime favorites - marks the first ever official release of these important early recordings, a milestone in the enigmatic singer-guitarist's idiosyncratic creative development.

    Have a look at this unseen footage of Redbone performing the album's "My Walking Stick" live at the 1973 Buffalo Folk Festival:



    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.

    Leon Redbone - who only recently retired from active recording and live performance - is a true original, a one of a kind singer, songwriter, and guitarist whose imitable interpretations of turn of the 20th century music have affirmed him as both Invaluable curator and resounding pop pioneer. Redbone began performing in Toronto more than four decades ago, earning the approval of such notables as Bob Dylan, The Lovin' Spoonful's John Sebastian, and famed producer John Hammond. Immediately iconic in his trademark Panama hat and dark sunglasses, Redbone proved an exceptional star, known far and wide via laconic performances on Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, and A Prairie Home Companion. His remarkable work in the years since encompass a stunning range of creative output - 13 studio albums, sold out live performances around the globe, multiple TV themes, countless commercials, voiceovers, and a memorable duet with Zooey Deschanel of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" featured in the 2003 holiday blockbuster, Elf. Throughout, Redbone's greatest contribution has been his undying championship of America's musical heritage, his singular talent introducing generation after generation to a still potent folk tradition.

    Both records available NOW.

  • RAISING AWARENESS AND FUNDS FOR STANDING ROCK'S DEFENDERS OF THE WATER SCHOOL

    Posted by Third Man on 2 December 2016

    Third Man Books and Third Man Records are grateful and excited to announce a new collaborative project in support of The Defenders of the Water School at Standing Rock (Mní Wičhóni Nakíčižiŋ Owáyawa), with plans to publish the activist students' work in the public forum and to help the school raise much needed funds.

    Under the guidance of Director of Development, April Rain, of Mní Wičhóni Nakíčižiŋ Owáyawa, thirdmanbooks.com will feature a page dedicated to exhibiting work, across various media, created by students and volunteers from The Defenders of the Water School. This public forum will allow the students’ voices to be heard the world over. Third Man Books is humbled to have the opportunity to display their inspiring work and assist in spreading public awareness of the ongoing struggle at Standing Rock. This is a situation that should not be viewed in isolation — this is a situation that affects us all. Water is life.

    In order to help the school fund its program in the Očhéthi Šakówiŋ Camp community, we would like to give you an opportunity to donate and show solidarity with the students and their families by wearing and representing the school on your heart, over your chest. Proceeds from sales of this original Third Man t-shirt design — done in collaboration with and approved by the school — will be donated directly to aid the school. The t-shirt can be purchased here.

    Wear your shirt with pride, and stay tuned for writing, art, journals, and more. We'll be posting everything.
