(Otis Redding – White Christmas)

Day late but definately not a dollar short for a special musicologist tribute in memory of Mr Otis Redding who died on December the 10th 41 years ago, (1967), at the tender age of 26. I won’t lie and say it’s a date that’s in my diary which for me makes it all the more special and even transcendental that he has risen in the unconscious to let us know ‘what time it is’…one of them performances that could wake the dead. As good as ‘White Christmas’ gets.

  1. there are so many wonderful christmas songs,
    but one or two stand out from the rest for me and theres no doubt that ‘White Christmas’ is one of em….this rendition sung by the incomparable Otis Redding never fails to shiver them timbers!!
