OTIS REDDING - MERRY CHRISTMAS BABY b/w WHITE CHRISTMAS
Here's an incredible double-sided bit of holiday wonderment from the master. Released in 1968 (exactly one year after Otis' tragic death), this superb record showcases the two sides of Otis; his reading of the perennial "Merry Christmas Baby" shows his uptempo driving vocals, while his take on "White Christmas" shows that this man could pull so much emotion out of a ballad and turn a song completely into his own.
Happy holidays, all: thank you for your kind words and comments which help keep this labor of loving going strong, three years down the line!
MERRY CHRISTMAS BABY
