As my review title suggests, this album holds up to listening any time of the year. If you can get it, GET IT!
It's not boring - it's Cajun, zydeco, gospel, chanky-chank, Dixieland and blues. By far, my favorite version of "Merry Christmas, Baby" EVER is this one by Dr. John. I like it even better than the ones by Elvis and Bruce Springsteen because it sounds so bluesy and "real" -- the words are like something an old Southern blues guy might actually say:) such as, "I ain't had a drink this mornin', but I'm all lit up like a Christmas tree." Another of my faves is "Please Come Home for Christmas" sung by Johnny Adams - I ended up liking it even better than the one by Don Henley of Eagles fame. It's so - soulful.
The corny little song about "I Saw Mama Kissing Santa Clause" has always bored me to death, but once I listened to Pete Fountain's version of it (ya have to get past the slow part first, though) it was just totally Dixieland Jazz at it's best, and I loved this version. 'Nuff said.

I guess I didn't know what Creole music really was. There are plenty of talented musicians here, but it's not really what I was expecting.Published on December 30, 2012 by EpcotRstFan
