Genuine Houserockin’ Christmas



Published November 27, 2003.VariousGenuine Houserockin’ Christmas(Alligator)Christmas got the blues, and the Alligator roster holds nothing back. More naughty than nice, Shemekia Copeland’s “Stay a Little Longer, Santa” and the Holmes Brothers’ “Back Door Santa” will give you the idea. Dave Hole’s incendiary slide guitar on “Fattening Up the Turkey” punctuates his penchant for seasonal romantic mishaps. Should the holidays give you the blues or if you need something to take the edge of all the joy, Alligator’s got your back. —Doug Taylor
