Day 21 - 'Please Come Home for Christmas' - Charles Brown
Day 21 and yesterday I found a link to a dozen Christmas albums I'd not heard before - Aarrggghh! - so before I go completely insane let's take a mellow look back to 1960 and this peerless version of a song that's never yet made it onto the Calendar despite the plethora of versions out there.
Charles Brown was a legendary R'n'B performer whose influence on latter musicians is almost incalculable, and this is just gorgeous; as satisfying and warm as a Pret A Manger Christmas Dinner Sandwich and a Mint Choclate drink from Starbuck's.
Listen here: Please Come Home for Christmas
