    For full festive frolicks, here’s the first album in full (‘Party’ is overselling it, as Side Two in particular is slow carols. But the celeste version of ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’ is unexpectedly cheery)
    and the second, remastered in Stereo! (It sounds like Santa’s funeral, except when it goes uptempo and sounds like a 60s game-show. ‘Kringle’s Jingle’ goes for some unorthodox settings and could plausibly have been the soundtrack to an award-winning Polish cartoon from 1962. Or a festive sequel to ‘Eraserhead’)

    The two-YouTube link limit means I’ll have to make a return visit….

  2. Tat Wood Says:

    Round Two: prepare yourself for the golden voice of Christopher Bowes. and one not on the album All hail Zargothrax.

  3. Bruce A Munro Says:

    1. “Yay! Father Innuendo has arrived with his tumescent bag!”
    2. The organ plays at Christmas…and Ken Griffin is getting increasingly annoyed with the noise.
    3. it is a little known fact that Lenny Dee trained a whole troop of poodles to feed him, clothe him, and bathe him.
    4. “A playlist? You want to know what’s on my record? Listen, bitches, I’m the goddamn Christopher Bowes. Whatever I do is pure gold.”
    5. Come On! I know covers of Christmas songs are Hot in the City, and bring in a lot of Mony, Mony, but knowing you did this commercial pap has a Bitter Taste.

    1) All pressings of this, w/3 different covers.

    2) He reached #2 on Billboards sales and jukebox charts in 1948. Yup.

    3)Top 20 hit in 1955 for Mr, Dee. Suck my candy cane Griffin.

    4) Ummmmm……BEANS!

    4) In the midnite hour she cried more more……BEANS!

  5. fred Says:

    4) Mr. Bowes.

  6. Hammy Says:

    #5: I’m glad I’m not the only person to whom the “(It’s a Nice Day For a) White Christmas” song title occurred.

    I keep threatening to write parody lyrics for that song (and how about “Dancing With My Elf”, while I’m at it?)….

  7. GSS ex-noob Says:

    The poodle one is my most WTF. Are they his, and why are they on the cover if they are or aren’t? It says he’s “on the organ”, I hope the dogs aren’t part of some kind of terrible animal-abuse-with-mallets device.

    Although Billy Idol is a WTF too. I remember the music videos.

  8. fred Says:

    2) Strange but true. This song reached #1 for seven consecutive weeks in 1948, an overdubbed vocalized version of a previous instrumental.

    3) Compare the above with this song that hit the top 20 1n 1955.

  9. fred Says:

    Checking out Billy Idol Xmas songs on youtube and this popped up. DJ Cummerbund – Rebel Navidad. A Christmas mash up of Jose Felicianos ‘Felice Navidad’. Now my favorite Xmas song.

  10. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I’ve been wondering about the awkward wording of the title of #2. It reads like the organ is playing itself, or possibly playing Ken.

    Anyhow, happy Crimbo to all and to all a good night.

  11. Ryan Says:

    GSS to Tat and fred for mucking up my Youtube history with that load of Yuletide nonsense. No doubt the YT algorithm will now provide me with many opportunities to “enjoy” new videos with highly curious content. All hail the algorithm.

    The Feliz Navidad mashup with Rebel Yell was the clear winner, though.

    Hopefully these records are all on the turntable spindle and ready to drop first thing in the morning, in this particular order, at the Tag Wizard’s house tomorrow.

    Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

  12. Leak Says:

    @Ryan: my favourite Yuletide nonsense would be Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire Walk With Me by Jherek Bischoff – “Classic Christmas songs in the style of Angelo Badalamenti’s Twin Peaks score”.

    Plus it’s on Bandcamp, so it won’t trigger Teh Algorithm… ^_^

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Leak: The mind boggles. I will have to listen.

  14. Emster Says:

    Thanks @Fred for that earworm cleansers. I swear every shop is playing a different version of “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” from any pop singer who can kinda carry a tune. The horror, the horror…

    It wouldn’t be Christmas without this little beauty from the Canadian godfathers of comedy:

  15. B. Chiclitz Says:

    “Hey mom. what’s that under Santa’s sack? It’s sticking straight up like another clarinet!”
    “Ok you kids go play outside now, mom and Santa have some things to discuss.”

    Merry wonderful holidays to all @GSS!

  16. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Emster: Well chosen, eh? sings theme song

    @BC: I was just about to note that myself. That is one suggestive clarinet.

    Is Christopher so sullen and drunk because whenever he’s called to play the organ, that square nerd Ken Griffin is there too? Is he wishing he could be on the Billy Idol record?

    The happiest mammal in my house is the cat. He got one of those catnip bananas that are all the rage among felines, and doses himself a couple of times a day. I must say, I’m enjoying more quiet, what with him snoozing.

    Loved the new Doctor, liking this round of “What If?”

  17. Hammy Says:


    All I can think, after reading your dialogue, is “I’m worried about that teddy bear….”

  18. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Hammy: Bear’s expression seems to confirm.

  19. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Happy New Year to all.

    Watch out for more upcoming things like this soon:

    since it’s the Year of the Dragon on Feb. 10th.
