Continuing on with our 2010 Christmas Party, a tradition on the show that I don't even remember how it started.
Engineer Ken and I played a version of Run Rudolph Run, and the next year we did a different version, and on and on.
This time I am playing a rare old 45 RPM single by the Rolling Stones' Keith Richards from 1978.
I suspect if you have a copy it is worth something, don't know how much but surely more than you originally paid for it.
And it should be pointed out that 1978 single was the only solo music we got from Keith until the 1990's!
After that, a little segue I hatched years ago and occasionally play again at Christmas- the movies into music is how that goes.
Then I'll go a little classy on you, with an amazing and beautiful guitar solo from an album it took me years to find, finally catching up to it in a Mom & Pop record store out where I live that is long gone.
You will hear me say that I thought maybe I had figured something out that has puzzled me for years- the same song that has two vastly different titles.
Turns out my theory doesn't hold water!
But one of those two songs, the instrumental one I will offer, is done in such a dignified manner, you will never guess who the band is that is playing it.
Not what we are used to hearing from them...not at all, lol!
Alright, that's enough writing about it- it's another episode for our Christmas Party, with things in it from my mind's attempt to bring you an uncommon collection of Christmas songs that haven't been overkilled by commercial radio.
My advice...look at the picture above and listen to the music, simple as that, lol!
