Holy Santa!

Did you make your re-post request yet? No? Well, time's running out. I aint gonna be generous forever, you know. Me am big angry Grinch. Well, not really, but if you don't ask, you can't get.

Now then, everybody knows that Santa is a god-fearin' man, damnit. And we've got the right and righteous Rev.'s J.M. Gates, A.W. Nix, and Edward W. Clayborn to put us on the proper path to Holiday salvation. It's a swingin', sweatin', shoutin', swayin', amen hollerin', goin' straight to hell good time. Perfect for closing out your Yuletide party, and sending folks home with a spring in their step, and the chain of guilt and depression in their hearts.

Can I get a Holiday hallelujah?

Rev. J.M. Gates: Did You Spend Christmas Day In Jail (mp3)

Rev. A.W. Nix: Death Might Be Your Christmas Gift (mp3)

Rev. Edward W. Clayborn: The Wrong Way To Celebrate Christmas (mp3)

Re-Post, by request:

Jerry Reed: Christmas Time's A Coming (mp3)

Things get really bad tomorrow. But after that, we're gonna have the rock'n'roll the kids love so much. Yep.

Greetings, thanks for all the amazing Christmas tunes as well as great music all year around. I missed out on the Christmas mixes you posted last year. Would you be able to re-establish those links? When I try to use them the files are no longer on the server.. Thanks again for all you do. Your one of the best all around music blogs I have found. Incredible taste, right up my alley.. Happy Holidays..

Dear Big Rock Santa,

Would you kindly repost:

No Christmas For John Quays (The Fall)

We Wish You a Protein Christmas (The Fall)

Go Tell It on the Mountain (Five Blind Boys of Alabama w/ Tom Waits)

I Want Elvis for Christmas (Holly Twins w/ Eddie Cochran)

Santa Came Home Drunk (Clyde Lasley)

also, it'd be great if you had a copy of Homo Christmas by Pansy Divsion

@Daniel - I should have said, I will posting the Waits/Blind Boys track on my own blog in the next week or so carnivalsaloon.blogspot

Thank you for the Jerry Reed. It was a rough year. We lost a lot of great ones. Especially a lot of R&B greats, like Nathaniel Mayer and Bo Diddley.

Hey Mr. Big Rock,

Thanks for another fine beginning to the Xmas music season.
I was driving along today listening to the Dalhart Imperials and it reminded me of your Old Man Spivey post.
Could you please repost this song?
Did the Dalhart Imperials have any other Xmas songs?
Thanks again for your wonderful blog.

I would like to request some Red Simpson! Something you haven't posted before or something pre-2006.
I thank you for turning me on to all of this awesome obscure Christmas music. Out on the Road for Christmas is now one of my all-time favorites.

Hooray, more requests!

Let's see...the xmas mixes from last year we'll get back up and available shortly...keep your eyes peeled. Me might even have some new ones coming your way.

Daniel, I'll get your requests up, too...but i'll probably spread them out a bit, if it's all right. I do not, unfortunately have the Pansy Division tune.

John (from Milw.)...good to hear from you again. Look out next week for the Dalheart Imperials song...and I think I've got another of theirs wandering about somewhere. I'll try to corral it for you.

As for Red Simpson...I've got his Xmas record, but to be honest, some of it's pretty bad...outside of the truckin' tunes. I'll see what I can do for ya, though.
