Xmas Present Blues
A little Holiday Blues today. Gonna mix the genres up a bit more in future posts, but we figgered we'd kick off our first three posts with the general template of what you're gonna find 'round these here parts.
The following tracks are not exactly outright naughty, but are suggestive enough to give you an idea what these two fellers really want for Christmas. Something about coming down your chimney and giving you a present. Mmmm hmmm.
King of innuendo Bo Carter has and appetite that only Santa can help him out with. Not sure if he's assuming the voice of someone else, or if there's something more interesting going on here.
Jimmy Reed brings his swampy electric Blues funk to the house for what seems to be a very private Yuletide party.
Santa Claus got stuck in the chimney!
