Eva Taylor first sang this song 85 years ago, in 1925. She retired in the 1940s. This video was shot in 1975, just two years before she died. Eva's original recording of "The Santa Claus Blues" can be found on the album and CD of the same title, though it's sadly out of print. But it's also available on this budget priced import (credited to Clarence Williams, the band leader). "The Santa Claus Blues" contains many great lines, but my personal favorite is the simple: "It may be Christmas to some folks, but it's just December 25th to me."
I love Christmas, music, and cats. What more do you need to know?
