Happy birthday Tom Waits! There's a good possibility we'll have a little something by Tom in our re-post area.
After the bummer that was yesterday's Xmas post, we feel like gettin' our groove on with a little Holly Daze dance party. Boogaloo indeed.
So get your Winter Solstice groove on with the twistin', swingin', and/or funkin' sounds of J.D. McDonald, Huey "Piano" Smith, The Marcels, and The Robin Sisters.
As we said at the top, we're gonna celebrate Tom Waits' birthday with a special edition of our bonus re-posts. Tom gives us his own unique take on "Silent Night", joins up with the Blind Boys of Alabama for a stompin' take on "Go Tell It On the Mountain", and, of course, gives us the immortal down'n'outer "Christmas Card From A Hooker In Minneapolis".
