What do you think are the chances of an out and out Chicago Blues band having a hit in America in 2015 with a Christmas song? The answer is none. But there was a time when America had great taste. This was a hit in Billboard’s Christmas Singles chart in 1968.
It was recorded at the same time they made their debut album Boogie With Canned Heat and was included on the expanded CD of that album.
There is no concession to Christmas musical cliche on this. It’s a straight blues boogie in that classic early Canned Heat style.
A great record to play at your Christmas dinner when everyone else wants to listen to Wham.
