Santa's Swingin' Balls

Hairy Krishna, folks!

Is it too early, or too obvious, for a Kay Martin post? Nah, there's never a good reason not to post Kay Martin during the Holidays.

For those who haven't stumbled across her elsewhere, Kay Martin (with her Body Guards!) is a bit of a naughty kitten, but methinks her stocking is rarely filled with coal.

Best known, amongst her many "party" records, is the immortal "I Know What He Wants For Christmas...But I Don't Know How To Wrap It" from 1962. It's a swingin', sleazy little affair, straight outta the "adult" night clubs of the era. Plenty of greasy organ, drums, and stripper horns, all in service to Martin's throaty, suggestive come-ons. If you own only one Christmas record, this is probably the one you most need (a google search will quickly net you the full monty).

Two of the following tracks were actually taken from her record "At Las Vegas" (appropriately enough), and one of those tunes ("The Night Before Xmas Binge") doesn't feature Martin, but instead features one her band members in a rather silly but fun little number about too much booze on Christmas Eve. We've all been there.

For our bonus re-posts, we've got two of the most infamous Kay Martin tunes from the "I Know What He Wants For Christmas..." record, which we had already posted all the way back in 2005. But it seemed appropriate to offer 'em up again. They're super snazzy and Yule-tastic!
