With his trademark fedora and dark glasses coupled with an unmistakable voice reminiscent of Bing Crosby, Leon Redbone is a modern-day music legend. This famous neo-vaudeville crooner has collaborated with many notable artists including Merle Haggard, Don McLean and Ringo Starr.

The album, which was recorded at the prestigious Olympia Theatre in Paris on a cassette in 1992, happily found its way back into a contemporary circuit by sheer coincidence. It helps to bridge the gap between the artist’s all too rare studio recordings by showing off the sheer mastery of all the musicians and especially the outstanding maitrise, musical and vocal, of their charismatic leader on stage, the unmistakable and inimitable Leon Redbone.
