Vinyl LP pressing. Having noticed that Christmas tends to be an annual event and that vinyl is suffering a resurgence, we here at Ace have put the two together and extracted 14 blues, R&B and doo wop sides from our Christmas R&B compact disc and turned them into a seasonal platter. A mostly upbeat selection that will certainly help you and yours get through these fraught times. Blues stars like B. B. King and Lowell Fulsom, with their ripping up-beat guitars join forces with the mellower mistletoe sounds of Hadda Brooks and Jesse Belvin. This positive view of seasonal goodwill was probably down to the fact that all these sides were cut in Los Angeles in the warm California sun. Neither of Crazy Santa Claus' reindeers was hurt in the making of this record.
