V.A. / BLUES BLUES CHRISTMAS 1925 – 1955


bluesbluesxmas デルタ・ブルース、カントリー・ブルースからシティ・ブルース、ジャンプ、ジャイヴ、ブギウギ、シカゴ・ブルースからゴスペル、スピリチャル等々まで、飽かせません! こちら英ドキュメント制作のブルースなクリスマスソング集!となります。クリスマスなんか知らねえ〜よ!と、うそぶく酔いどれ中年音楽マニアにはピッタリの2CDじゃないかと思います。
にしても、「Death might be your Santa Claus オマエのサンタは既に死んでいる?」とか、「The wrong way to celebrate Christmas クリスマス、非道の祈り」とか、「How I hate to see Christmas come around どんだけ、そこいらのクリスマス・ムードにアッタマ来るか、わかる?」、「How will you spend Christmas? テメーは、クリスマスは何してヤリ過ごす?」などなど、もうタイトルだけでもブルージーなクリスマス気分が盛り上がって来ますねえ!?それでもって謹賀新年ブルースも含む選曲、使えます。
