Here's a special treat from your grandparent's time. Where Will You Be Christmas Day? was curated by Dick Spotswood and sports 24 holiday tracks from 1917 to 1959. Before the heavy post-production days, these tracks have been praised by the press for their pureness in a time before Christmas had grown so commercial.
- Butterbeans And Susie - Papa Ain't No Santa Claus (Mama Ain't No Christmas Tree) [MP3] (1930)
- Cotton Top Mountain Sanctified Singers - Christ Was Born On Christmas Morn [MP3] (1929)
- Kansas City Kitty - Christmas Morning Blues [MP3] (1934)
- Kelly Pace, Aaron Brown, Joe Green, Matthew Johnson And Paul Hayes - Holy Babe [MP3] (1939)
- Lord Beginner - Christmas Morning The Rum Had Me Yawning [MP3] * (1939)
* Highly Recommended
