The Old 97's Wish You A "Holly Jolly Christmas"
A little blast-from-the-past treat this mornin': Eleven mighty years ago, way back in 1997, local label Big Iron released a now-out-of-print little Christmas gem called Honky-Tonk Holidays: Christmas in Deep Noellum. And included on that release, this gem: Old 97's -- "Holly Jolly Christmas".
"This track freaks me out a little bit because it's the Old 97's doing jazz."
Indeed, it is! And, well, it's great.
