High on the Hog is the ninth studio album by Canadian-American rock group the Band, released in 1996. As with its predecessor, 1993's Jericho, it relies heavily on cover versions; only two tracks are original. Songs include Bob Dylan's "Forever Young" (which was intended as a tribute to Jerry Garcia), a live recording of Richard Manuel performing "She Knows", and the closer "Ramble Jungle" (which features vocals by Champion Jack Dupree).
The European and Japanese pressings of the album included a bonus track, "Young Blood", which only appeared in the US on a tribute album to Doc Pomus and which is the only release by the group to include vocals by multi-instrumentalist Garth Hudson. A 2006 CD release on the U.S. label Titan/Pyramid Records includes two bonus tracks, the first of which is "Young Blood"; the other is the Sam Cooke cover "Chain Gang", which was previously unreleased.Rick Danko – acoustic and electric bass, acoustic guitar, vocals
