December 13

This time of year it is traditional for my wife and I to watch some modern Christmas classic movies. The one scheduled for tonight was the Will Ferrell classic Elf :

imagesIt never occurred to me before that the character Leon the Snowman in this movie was voiced by and model after Leon Redbone the neo-vaudvillian performer.


To celebrate this enlightenment I think I’ll spend some time listening to the first two Redbone albums:


1975s On The Track and 1977s Double Time.

I had no idea Mr Redbone was part of my family’s Christmas traditions but he is welcome!
