Overview

Third Man's aptly named Long Way from Home: Early Recordings gathers up some of the earliest known studio sessions from the enigmatic Canadian-American singer/songwriter. Recorded in 1972 at University of Buffalo's WBFO radio by Dave Benders, the 18-track set, released in 2016, arrived on the heels of Redbone's retirement from public life. Comprised of eight live cuts and ten studio tracks, Long Way Home sees Redbone delivering a rawer, more traditionally blues-based set of material that lacks the refinement of his 1975 debut, but still crackles with the theatricality and droll nostalgia that would come to define him later on. In addition to Long Way Home, Third Man also released an exclusive vinyl reissue of Redbone's acclaimed Warner debut, On the Track.
