05 December: The Hollyridge Strings: Jingle Bells / Jingle Bell Rock

Published December 05, 2016

Why did anyone bother going to free-form jazzers and LSD-soaked psychedelic rock bands in their search for wild experimentation and mind-blowing avant-garde musical experiments? Didn't they realise that it was already there to be explored in the so-called easy-listening music beloved by the suburbia they so desperately wanted to escape from? Just listen to this frankly insane medley of 'Jingle Bells' and 'Jingle Bell Rock' as performed by The Hollyridge Strings on their 1965 album Christmas Favorites.
