Musicians are known for releasing Christmas recordings this time of year, so I put a few videos together for you this Christmas season. But I thought I would find recordings that were done earlier than Clapton, Vaughan, and Setzer. I collected a series of videos from the early Texas and Delta Blues legends. Take a look and listen to some great early blues recordings of Christmas songs past. Enjoy!
The first video comes from Charley Jordan and is called, “Christmas Christmas Blues.” Check it out…
The next video comes from an early Texas blues favorite, Blind Lemon Jefferson. This tune is called, “Christmas Eve Blues.”
The last of the early blues recordings in this post is from Blind Blake in 1929. His recording is called, “Lonesom Christmas Blues.”
Now for this next video, I jumped forward a few years to 1961. Freddie King recorded a song called, “Christmas Tears.”
And finally, a little modern Christmas blues from Joe Bonamassa
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and yours!
