WHITE? NAH - IT'S BLUE...



Continuing our series of JIM REEVES' Seasonal
songs, here's the tall Texan with a rendition of BLUE
CHRISTMAS that actually fits the mood of the song.
(ELVIS PRESLEY's version is too much of a 'toe-
tapper' for my tastes, good as it is.)

Kid, do you remember the Shakin' Stevens version from Christmas 1982, it reached #2. That was the first time I heard this song.

Indeed I do - it was very similar to Elvis's version, I thought.

The Shakey version was on the very first " Now that's what I call music - the Xmas album! ", which we bought on vinyl, back in '85. I remember putting it on, on Christmas morning and turning the volume up dead loud at the very point where Noddy Holder screeches, " IT'S CHRIIIIIIISTMAS!! "

I bought the Slade Christmas CD a few years back, JP - just to have that famous track.
