Product description

This is an amazing sequel to Blues, Blues Christmas Vol. 1. The people at Document Records have really done their homework and come up with a double disc of exceptional rarities from the roaring Twenties through the fabulous Fifties. Chock full of un-familiar holiday goodies that not everyone will appreciate at the dinner table, save those cool cats and chicks who crave for alternative early bluesy shuck and jive, tales of Christmas woes and boogies. Volume Two continues the 'mostly' Blues songs theme that comprised Volume One. This set includes Blind Lemon Jefferson 'Christmas Eve Blues', Lightin' Hopkins 'Merry Christmas', Sr. Rosetta Tharpe 'Silent Night' and 'When They Ring the Golden Bell', Blind Blake 'Lonesome Christmas Blues', and Chuck Berry 'Run Rudolph Run' and 'Merry Christmas Baby'. Lesser-known real Blues singers include Jesse Thomas 'Christmas Celebration', Lil Son Jackson 'New Year's Resolution, Smokey Hogg 'My Christmas Baby', Little Willie Littefield 'Merry Xmas'. Nice surprises include Heavenly Gospel Singers 'When Was Jesus Born', Moonglows 'Hey Santa Claus', Alphabetical Four 'Go Where I Send Thee', and Orioles 'What Are You Doing New Year's Eve'. Two of the forty-four songs are instrumentals and there are some good old fashioned from the pulpit recorded preaching, just in case you would even dream about sinning at this special time of year. 44 ghosts from Christmas past will take you back and set you right.
