High on the Hog

High on the Hog (1996) is the eleventh album by Canadian-American rock group The Band. It is the second studio album of The Band in its latter-days lineup. 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" (a song The Band originally backed Dylan on), done as a tribute to Jerry Garcia of The Grateful Dead, Blondie Chaplin's "Where I Should Always Be", a song in the tradition of "Whispering Pines" (from the 1969 eponymous album), the cover of Johnnie Johnson and The Kentucky Headhunters' "Back to Memphis", which features layers of horns by Garth Hudson and the closer "Ramble Jungle", with Champion Jack Dupree growling out barely intelligible vocals over a pastiche of African music.

The British and Japanese pressings of the album closed with a different track, "Young Blood", which only appeared in the United States on a tribute album to Doc Pomus.
