One of the grittiest Christmas albums we've ever heard – and one of the grooviest too! The set's comprised of rare material from the 78 rpm generation – tracks from the 20s, 30s, and 40s – a very cool mix of blues, hillbilly, and jazz tracks – most of which we've not seen compiled on any other collection! The package is a great testament to the riches of the Okeh, Columbia, and Vocalion labels back in the heyday of the 78 rpm format – and the music here is way different than anything you'll hear on your usual Holiday compilations! Titles include "Don't Think I'm Santa Claus" by Lil McClintock, "Christmas Morning Blues" by Sonny Boy Williamson, "Santa Bring My Man Back" by Ozie Ware with Hot Five, "Will Hell Be Your Santa Claus" by Reverent J M Gates, "Christmas & The New Year Blues" by Tampa Red, "Did You Spend Christmas Day In Jail" by Reverent JM Gates, and "Santa Claus" by Bo Carter. CD features two bonus tracks – "Santa" by Lightnin Hopkins and "Crhistmas Morning Blues" by Kansas City Kitty.
