5.0 out of 5 stars A gold mine of obscure Christmas songs. 18 Dec 2006
By G. Miller - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Listening to most Christmas records is like trying to swallow a 50 pound soggy Christmas cake. This CD - Blues, Blues Christmas: 1925-1955 is like eating one rare perfect truffle.

Some of these songs are very very weird, such as DEATH MIGHT BE YOUR SANTA CLAUS, which is shouted by a minister at his congregation. The song LET'S MAKE CHRISTMAS MERRY, BABY, sung by Amos Milburn, is smolderingly sexual with the lyric "I want to slide down your chimney" sung to his girlfriend. THE SANTA CLAUS CRAVE, an old old blues number sung by Elzadie Robinson, was one of the Christmas blues I'd always wanted to hear, and it's on this CD. Some of the recordings are from the 1920's and they sound scratchy and worn, but it only adds to the authenticity of the experience of listening to them. This is the most unique Christmas record I've ever heard, and it's my favourite Christmas record now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ghosts of Christmas past 6 Dec 2006
By Jon M. Frugoli - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Without a doubt, this is the best collection of early blues, hot-jazz and gospel Christmas music available. Every cut is a gem, especially the recordings from the 1920's and 30's.

If you're a fan of old-time music, this is the Holiday CD for you.

I would also recommend Dust-to-Digital's "Where Will You Be Christmas Day?"

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Christmas Blues Archives 17 Jan 2010
By Joseph T. Corley - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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. And, I don't have to get up to change each 78 rpm record on the victrola!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good collection 31 Oct 2013
By Coert Munk - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This set of cd's tells the story of development of Christmas albums with blues musicians.
A great compilation with all aspects, including stories told by reverends in the churches.
One of the new highlights in my collection.

And...because nothin's perfect, I give 4 out of 5 stars...if you see what I mean.
