Well, Happy Holidays folks, whatever and however you celebrate. Thanks for stopping by. Here's to a little peace on earth, and to you. Don't let anyone tell you that's a bad thing to wish for.
Got lots of tasty goodness on tap for the next year.
Two final Holiday tunes today. One is my all time favorite Xmas song. You probably already have it, I posted about it last year , and it's on virtually every Holiday compilation worth having. But what the hell. I'm keen on it.
First, Chicago Blues legend Eddy Clearwater gets a little help from our favorite masked marauders, Los Straightjackets, on a tune of Holiday hope and joy. Over a drenched organ line, they tell us:
Good time are coming baby,
Don't let these bad times get you down.
Pretty soon it's gonna be Christmas,
Santa Claus is coming back to town

And, of course, The Pogues.

Have a Merry, Happy one. See you on Monday with the start of my top ten list, my worst album of the year, and other such goodness.
