  1. Really like this one a lot, Frank! I'll add it to my list of the best non-traditional Christmas songs. (Don't be surprised if I return frequently to listen to it.) Still can't believe your luck at finding this collection.

    Hope you had a very pleasant Christmas Day!

    1. Thanks, Ms. V.S., nice low key day here in Jiveland, hope yours was fine too. (I think I first heard this by Elvis Presley and it never quite clicked until Chuck's. And it's a little different from the 45, so that's appealing. Nice Chess rhythm section too.) Listen as often as you like!
