Among the countless blues recordings of holiday tunes, this more recent survey from Black Top pits heavy-guitar stylists like Earl King and Robert Ward with more-popular roadhouse belters such as Anson Funderburgh and the Rockets and Rod Piazza and the Mighty Flyers. It's a great lineup, but the titles tell the story: "Grady and Santa Are Coming to Town" (Grady Gaines & the Texas Upsetters); "No More Pretty Presents" (Piazza); "Christmas by the Bar-B-Que" (Lynn August); and, naturally, Funderburgh's "Young Girls Drive Me Wild (at Christmas)." But it's Robert Ward's chillingly funky and impassioned number "Wouldn't It Be a Merry Christmas?" that will make Santa's little helpers want to get up and do some kind of funky-chicken derivation by the Christmas tree. --Martin Keller

CD Reviews

The best Christmas Blues CD available
Tom Elmer | Berea, OH United States | 12/05/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have several Christmas Blues CDs and enjoy each one - Roomful,Alligator, Etta James,Blue Yule and others - but when I am in the mood for a knock out blues CD I put this one in the player. A blues fan will recognize the strong line up of Black Top's great stable of bands and they each do a great job of getting in the spirit.If you enjoy great blues music this is a present worth finding under your tree( or better yet playing in the background at your Christmas party)."
