I know you are just stepping out of your double take on seeing Jimi Hendrix and Christmas songs in the same sentence. But in 1969 while Hendrix and some of his buddies jammed through the night a medley containing ‘Little Drummer Boy/Silent Night/Auld Lang Syne’ filled the air. It may be a little frayed around the edges but it gives this list of blues rock Christmas songs an added sense of wonder. That said the collection was doing quite well up to that point on its own with the finger picking charms of John Lee Hooker conjuring up a smoke laden room full of coolest cats from all around. B.B. King’s ‘Blue Decorations’ is a mild composition by comparison, almost Van Morrison in direction, and is very easy on the ear. Trust the Rolling Stones then to offer the requisite grime on their 1973 effort ‘Winter’ which had the distinction of not featuring their resident guitarist Keith Richards. The fact that it was recorded in tropical Jamaica says much about the Stones need to do things differently back then. Stretching to over 5 and a half minutes this is piece of work that never outstays its welcome, much like a lot of the English band’s seminal material of the time.
