Fathead “Tonight Feels Like Christmas”
from Santa's Got Mojo An Electro-Fi Christmas Blues Celebration (Electro-Fi Records 2002) —Fathead is one of Canada's finest bands, working out of Toronto. This cd is one of the better contemporary Christmas/Holiday blues releases out there. A job well done.
Kid Andersen and Friends “Santa Claus Is Coming To Play featuring Terry Hanck”
from Christmas At Greaseland Vol. Green (Greaseland Records 2010) —there's also a Volume Red, and the 2 are chock full of the San Fran Bay areas finest blues & soul talents. Rusty Zinn, Rick Estrin, Elvin Bishop, John Nemeth (who has since moved to Memphis) and many, many more.
Graham Parker and Nona Hendryx “Soul Christmas”
from The Time Life Treasury Of Christmas The Greatest Holiday Duets (EMI 2006) —the title of the CD is not hype; there really are many great duets on this disc. Many, if not most, of the Time Life music series releases border on exceptional. They are typically very well put together and sequenced.
