Christmas with Cootie
inNewson December 13, 2012
As Aaron puts it “this is the ‘We Are the World’ of Blues Christmas!” We have to admit, we wrote a Diggin’ on this last year, but its worth repeating – if you don’t have Cootie Stark’s “Christmas with Cootie” album on your rotation this Holiday, you’re missing out. The album, featuring Cootie and friends John Dee Holeman, Cool John Ferguson, Macavine Hayes, and Whistlin’ Britches, takes a Blues spin on classic Christmas tunes. It’s the closest thing to a traditional Christmas Special Music Maker has ever produced, described by Tim as “hilariously uplifting.”
We think you’ll enjoy the Holiday track we have for you from “Christmas with Cootie.” There’s enough raw, Blues grit in “Come Home For Christmas” that it will delight even the most avowed Grinch.
