Santa and his reindeer would surely be hopping and bopping on their worldwide Christmas Eve journey if they brought this compilation along for high‐in‐the‐skies musical inspiration. No stately, choir‐laden holiday hymns here ‐ just 16 rip‐roaring Yuletide gems from the ‘50s and early ‘60s guaranteed to delight any rocker on Christmas morning! Naturally, Chuck Berry’s Run Rudolph Run is aboard, along with The Moonglows‘ jumping Hey Santa Claus and Jack Scott’s droll title track.
They’re joined by some truly rare seasonal goodies by Three Aces and a Joker, Big Bud, Earney Vandagriff, Chuck Blevins, Little Joey Farr, and Memphis rockabilly queen Cordell Jackson. Billy Briggs‘s North Pole Boogie is an irresistible country swinger, and Charlie Starr’s Christmas Twist proves that even the era’s top dance craze could be delightfully connected to old St. Nick with a little imagination.
12inch LP pressed on green vinyl, plus song info on the LP sleeve.
