It's that time again - so here's my "Run Run Rudolph" tribute - "Santa Goes Rockin'" back for another spin, along with a remixed "Donde Esta Santa Claus" and two brand new Xmas related recordings.

"Santa Goes Rockin'" came out last year and did well - to me it's a kind of tribute to Chuck Berry's "Run Run Rudolph" and some of the lyrics relate to Chuck's classic. Slide guitar on my old Rosetti - the first guitar I ever owned back in 1963. Good to see that the track will be featured on the "Blues DeLuxe" radio syndicate - Santa keeps Rockin!

"Donde" was originally a big hit back in the 50s, sung by a little girl, Augie Rios. I fancied it as a rocked up Ritchie Valens kind of thing, so here it is - I think it's a lot of fun, and features the Rockfold Rhythm Section on tambourine.

Freddie's "Christmas Tears" is interesting - it changes constantly from one chord structure to another, but I think it works. I hope he'd approve.

And my own "Christmas Canter".. I had this little tune floating around in my head for about two years before I actually recorded it, so it must have something going for it. Dashed out here with jingle bells from a real Santa, and various time signature changes which I couldn't begin to explain because I don't understand them myself.

So I hope you can enjoy my excursion into festivities in the light hearted spirit that was intended - and a Merry Christmas to you.
