04 December: Lenny Dee: Sleigh Ride

Published December 04, 2012

I owe a great debt to various Christmas music blogs that specialise in ripping and uploading long-out-of-print vinyl of the fairly obscure variety. I found this particular track - organist and Easy Listening legend Lenny Dee's take on perennial favourite 'Sleigh Ride' - on one such blog. It comes from his 1961 album Happy Holi-Dee (geddit?). What could I possibly add except that this has to be heard to be believed.

Listen to it here.
