Swingshift Santa


















Does anyone have a digitized copy of The Marquees' "Christmas In The Congo"? All we got here at the Mountain is a tragically scratched vinyl version. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

As ever, some swell besotted Holiday tunes can be found over at Barstool Mountain.

Here, we're putting on our Rockabilly and Swing Santa hats today.

Sonny Cole (can't find a link) wants to send Santa off into space. Apparently the boys and girls on the moon need a little love this Holiday season too.

The Barnstompers bring their bass thwacking, pedal steel groovin' western swing stylings to the party with a little "Christmas Boogie". Yep, another "Boogie" song. Please note that this "Christmas Boogie" is not the same tune as the previously posted one by the Davis Sisters.

And, finally, a bonus Blues number from Harry Crafton and the Doc Bagby Orchestra. Seems our fella woke up on Christmas morning to find his baby gone, along with all his possessions and his Cadillac. Understandably bummed, he wants one of them back. Guess which one?

Swing!

Sonny Cole: Santa To The Moon (mp3)

Barnstompers: Christmas Boogie (mp3)


Harry Crafton and The Doc Bagby Orchestra: Bring That Cadillac Back (mp3)

Support your Ho Ho Ho this Holiday season. Heh.
