The Bullfrog Bklues Club's Happy Christmas Youtube

Well... it IS December now...

So time for one of the very best versions EVER of a classic Xmas song from the great Bahamanian guitarist Joseph Spence. That fact that he didn't know many the words of the song and couldn't  speak English well didn't worry him one bit - this is a live performance!
PLEASE watch this,  it's s bloomin' wonderful, you'll be "Happy All The Time" to borrow another of Joseph Spence's titles. 

No wonder Ry  Cooder is a huge fan, and covered some Josph Spence originals on his "Jazz" album...
