Have Yourself A Bluesy Little Christmas

Here is 2007's second mix. This one focuses on rhythm, blues, and soul with some hints of gospel thrown in. (2008's mixes will be posted on the 21st and the 23rd of the month.)

You'll note that this CD and ...Country Little Christmas both started with variations on "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus." I actually had another one for the country CD, a Buck Owens tune called "Santa Looked A Lot Like Daddy" but it didn't make the cut.

This CD contains two of my favorite Christmas records of all time, "White Christmas" by The Drifters and "Merry Christmas Baby" by Chuck Berry. I like both these songs so much they got their own posts earlier this month.
