Rudy Ray Moore - "This Ain't No White Christmas" (Norton, 2001 - original release 1971)

I don't like "holiday" music. It's fuckin' boring. There are few exceptions though. Phil Spector's "A Christmas Gift For You", remains arguably thee best! The "Wall of Sound" in its full MONO glory and through the ethereal voices of the Ronettes, the Crystals and Darlene Love, still makes a misanthropic creature like me to borrow something of the silly snow dust of the Christmas interlude. I said "thee best" and not "my favorite", OK? Well, my fave is a Chess forty five by Chuck Berry. I'm sure you all know that I'm talking about "Run Rudolph, Run" single. And I'm sure you all guys and gals involved with rock & roll music, just adore this toon! In every version of it and not only the original. From Keef to Dave Edmunds and Lemmy, "Rudolph" just has the right licks for someone to like a "holiday" record. And what we got here it's the funniest, the raunchiest and the dirtiest! From Dolemite with love and a lot of "X" behind it. Mr. Blaxploitation himself, delivers 30 cm of pure lust and I'm sure all you know what I'm talking about... Capitol reissued this platter on CD for the first time in 1996 and guess what, in a very short time dissapeared from the face of earth. The same thing happened by Norton who picked up on this in 2001. If you check their website, there's a comic sad face telling us that's out of stock for both formats, vinyl and CD.
Merry Christmas to ya all and send kids to bed, Santa's cuming!

    Merry Xmas

  3. Thank you guys for stopping by. Merry X-mas to you and your families. Oh and RYP, you're totally right mate! But anyone that's true rock & roller, simply can do no wrong with this tune! Chuckster the master!

  4. Merry Christmas mate, keep up the good work!

  5. Happy holidays to you too and your family von Grumpy! Thanks for the kind words once again!

  6. Dirty record, exciting sounds,... and bizarre cover! (maybe the most bizarre cover ever made. Maybe not, but at least, it's in the top-ten).

    Happy Holidays!

  7. Lookin' forward to listen to this one, so thanks in advance.
    As for 'Run Rudolph, Run' I like it a lot as well, but it was not written by Chuck! He certainly was the first one to sing & play it though and what a great job he did.

  8. @Vinyl Solution: Hey mate, i don't think it's bizzare. It's very funny! A mix of an ugly women porn movie with blaxploitation! Actually it's very cool! Happy holidays my friend!

    @drfeelgoed: Hi Doc. Sorry, i didn't put it right. When i'm saying "an original" usually for songs, i mean the first or the definitive take of it! Thanks for stopping by one more time and happy holidays to you and your family!

    Cheers lads!
