Now, it's another December, the month of Christmas and New Years Eve parties, and when and where possible, family gatherings. To all, we wish a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Yes, I know by today's standards, that it's not politically correct, but I'm sure that with any blues fan, it is correct. What-- the song should be "Happy Holiday, Baby”? That would be a severe injustice to Charles Brown! His original vocal was with Johnny Moore's Three Blazers, “Merry Christmas, Baby" (1947), on the Aladdin label, #254.
Thanks to all who attended/participated in/at the NEOBA 2016 Christmas Party. It is/was for good causes!
