This will be my last post until 2012. I want to thank you for stopping by — I really do appreciate your interest and your support.
I wish you a healthy, happy holiday season.
I love Christmas music, all of it, of every stripe. And while there’s no beating Bing or Frank or even Burl, here’s some R & B/soul holiday tunes you might enjoy . . . because Otis and James are pretty cool, too.
Merry Christmas, Baby, Otis Redding
Gee Whiz, It’s Christmas, Carla Thomas
Presents for Christmas, Solomon Burke
Santa Claus Is Coming to Town, Ray Charles
I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, Amy Winehouse
Christmas Comes But Once a Year, Charles Brown
Santa Claus, Go Straight to the Ghetto, James Brown
Jingle Bells, Booker T. & the MG’s
I’ll Be Home for Christmas, Fats Domino
I Want a Rock n Roll Guitar, Johnny Preston
