Various - Meet Mrs. Santa Claus (CD)

Various - Meet Mrs. Santa Claus (CD)


The compiler of this collection, the ”Mojo” Man (a.k.a. Little Victor Mac) at Koko-Mojo Records is giving a piece of very good advice: add a feminine touch to your holidays this year. This time around Victor has handpicked 28 fabulous Christmas tunes by some real gone lady singers. It’s always all about Mr. Santa Claus here and Mr. Santa Claus there. It doesn’t have to be that way. Move over old man ’cause Mrs. Santa is coming to town. Many great tracks are featured from Mabel Scott (Boogie Woogie Santa Claus), Alma Cogan (Mrs. Santa Claus), Pearl Bailey (Jingle Bells Cha-Cha-Cha), Mahalia Jackson (Go tell It On The Mountain), The Platters with their female vocalist Zola Taylor singing lead (All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth), Eartha Kitt with a gritty and rarely heard live version of a song ( Santa Baby) recorded in 1962. More little known gems come from Ozie Ware (Santa Claus Bring My Man Back), Jan Bradley (Christmas Time), Ruby Wright (Santa’s Little Sleigh Bells), Marlene Paula (I Want To Spend Christmas With Elvis), Dinah Washington (Ole Santa), Lillian Briggs (Rock ‘N’ Roll-y Poly Santa Claus), Bertha “Chippie” Hill (Christmas Man Blues) and other dangerous ladies behind a microphone. It’s hard to find a bad track here. This could easily become a series for the next holiday seasons.
