It's Still Christmas Somewhere

We'll conclude this year's Christmas festivities with a little post-Christmas music for relaxing, perhaps around a fire with some wine or other Christmas spirits, after the kids have gone to bed.
This is a compilation of 40's/50's tunes that Savoy Jazz (SJL 1157) put out in 1985. It has recently been reissued on CD (available at the usual on-line suspects) with improved sound - the benefits of digital remastering, no doubt - in contrast to the somewhat wonky sound of this original 1985 vinyl.
Also, this particular disc has a rough skipping spot in one song that I simply couldn't get to track correctly, so my apologies for that.

White Christmas - The Ravens
Far away Christmas Blues - "Little Esther" Phillips with Johnny Otis
Love for Christmas - Felix Gross
Trim Your Tree - Jimmy Butler
Wonderful Christmas Night - Dan Grissom
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer - A.B.Green
Silent Night - Big Maybelle
White Christmas - Charlie Parker
Mr. Santa's Boogie - The Marshall Brothers
Christmas Blues - "Gatemouth" Moore
Christmas Blues - "Washboard" Pete
Frosty the Snowman - A.B.Green
I Want to Spend Christmas with Elvis - Debbie Dabney
Santa's secret - Johnny Guarnieri with Slam Stewart
