Bunny and Skully – White Christmas

4 days and counting…busier than a busy bee who’s busy buzzing around the garden collecting nectar for the hive. I’ve neglected all you dedicated musicologists out there in the hyper real but I aim to make it up to you with a couple of musical Christmas presents delivered via themusicologist before the Big day…in the meantime hold this festive ska cut courtesy of pioneering Jamaican duo Arthur ‘Bunny’ Robinson and Noel ‘Skully’ Simms whose recording career began by singing and recording Jamaican Rhythm and Blues in the early 50’s..

  1. Probably the best version of this song that I ever heard, especially as they had probably never seen snow for real !

  3. I haven’t heard the Hadda brooks version, but I do have one by Big Maybelle. You wouldn’t think her huge voice would fit the song but it works.
