A Little Christmas Jumpin’

Jumpin 24

Here’s a little Christmas gift – the best thing about it being there are almost no bloody Christmas songs on it (The Staple Singers got through the filter because IT’S THE BLOODY STAPLE SINGERS AND THEY CAN DO WHAT THEY WANT).

So when the turkey is just a hollowed-out carcass that the dog is eyeing greedily, everyone has fallen out and you’re drunk out of your tiny mind on snowballs and sherry, stick this mix on. Have a dance, have another drink and by the time it slips into the slow, melancholy, quiet section at the end, you’ll be collapsing into a carb-fuelled slumber anyhow.

There’s a couple of tracks from the newish Preservation Hall Jazz Band, which has been blowing my tiny mind, and something from the imminent new Stick In The Wheel album. Otherwise it’s the usual blend of tunes that I’ve been listening to a lot lately.
