05 December: Los Straitjackets: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

Published December 05, 2019

After yesterday's foray into "Swedish Traditional", let's venture into something a bit more modern - sort of. The American instrumental band Los Straitjackets released a Christmas album in 2002, from which I've plucked this early 1960s surf-style version of the traditional song 'God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen'. And they've thrown in the solo from Del Shannon's 'Runaway' for good measure as well.

Listen here.

'Tis The Season For Los Straitjackets! features their surf-style version of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.
