Worth Another Listen - Leon Redbone

Like any artist caught living in the wrong time, Leon Redbone is an amazing talent that never could make it to the big time, singing a style that was popular almost a century old. I first saw Leon Redbone in concert in 1979, where he was opening for legendary guitarist Bonnie Raitt. It was an exceptional concert, one I still remember well.

So, here is a clip of Leon singing Some of These Days, sung in his own style. Call it jazz, swing or just old-fashioned, it is not like much else recorded in this century.
