A good cause indeed, and a good time of year.

We recently reviewed Tarheel blues/soul rock ‘n’ roll kings the Luxuriant Sedans outstanding new album Born Certified and now comes word that the Winston-Salem combo has teamed up with singer Sheila Grady-Carlisle (formerly of beloved NC band Arhooly) for a special holiday release. “Santa Claus, Baby” – originally cut in ’55 by R&B outfit the Voices – can be found right HERE at Amazon, and you need to know that your purchase will go to a good cause, the local Triad Musicians Matter organization which according to the website “is a 501c3 non-profit corporation created for the purpose of providing Triad North Carolina musicians and their families financial support in cases of sudden illness, hospitalization, accident, death, or displacement from home due to fire or natural disasters.”
Amen. Below, check out the tune. That’s one kick-ass vocal duel, incidentally. And happy holidays, everyone.
