Santa Claus Is Getting Down - Jesse Ed Davis

Winter Warnerland
2 LP 1988 Christmas Sampler Promo
Red & Green Vinyl

Two LPs that were released by Warner Brothers in 1988 featured a rare Christmas track by one of Oklahoma's favorite sons and Okie Mafia member Jesse Ed Davis, who passed away in June, 1988. I first heard this tune on the late-Rockin' John Henry's "Smokehouse Blues" radio program. Up to that time I had no idea Jesse Ed had even done a Christmas single. This rare LP was finally released by Warner Bros on CD and I've included this tune in many of my holiday podcasts and homemade CDs. Jesse Ed's distinctive slide guitar in this bluesy Christmas tune is vintage Jesse Ed.
