It's not often you get to hear Mabel Scott wail "Boogie Woogie Santa Claus" and Bessie Smith pour it all out on "At the Christmas Ball" alongside Lightnin' Hopkins's blistering "Santa" or Amos Milburn's classic "Let's Make Christmas Merry, Baby," but that's the mile-wide shape of this good-times, 15-track compilation. Swingin' Louis Jordan is likewise featured on "Santa Claus, Santa Claus," while Kings Albert and B. B., John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Weatherspoon, and Lowell Fulson sharpen their axes for a mess of Christmas blues. Also included are cuts by Anson Funderburgh & the Rockets, Floyd Dixon, and Eddie C. Campbell, whose "Santa's Messin' with the Kid" is as funny as it is rockin'. A fantastic showcase for blues guitar and vocals, this album should please any blues fan in your house. --Martin Keller

This CD is as fun as it is unique. If you love the blues, and are looking for the perfect Christmas album, this is the one. Worth the price of admission for Amos Milburn's "Let's Make Christmas Merry, Baby." This cd is guaranteed to chase away your blues, and brighten your spirits.

I look forward to playing this CD every Christmas. You can visualize a old smoky Louisiana bar back in the day.

Compile,compile,compile...taskmaster Elwood must have those little elves up at the North House digging deep to ready these Blue Jingle Jewels to come on down that chimmey.Eleven different record labels serve as source, with seasonal selections starting far back in 1925 and turning thru till 1995.Throughout the jovial journey wandering amongst alumni credited with many a cornerstone Christmas crafting is encouraged. Hopefully you`ll too find some lost YULEtidings to X with certifiable seals of favorability.~~Merrily Mix~ 2% , 3# , 4#1\2 , 5$ , 7$ , 8# , 9#1\2 , 10# , 11$ , 12#1\2 , and 15# ~~ Post Script: The House lost a golden opportunity for further listener enrichment with lame liner notes. ( Elwood I really missed your muse ) Just a wish from me - how bout mixing up a live merry-millennial-mirth-maker batch from all those kitchen-clubs ya got,Pretty Please. ***buyit*saveit*shareit*giveit*donateit to the local library***
