More holiday tunes from the Southern Folklife Collection. This time from the great Rockin’ Sidney, master tape FT-6771 in the Goldband Recording Corporation Collection (20245). This tape was preserved in the Rivers Studio as part of a current Southern Folklife Collection digitization project, From the Piedmont to the Swamplands: Preserving Southern Traditional Music, funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The legendary Count Rockin’ Sidney and the Dukes recorded well over 50 zydeco flavored R&B tracks for Shuler’s Goldband Records in the 1960s and 1970s, including this tight grooved holiday jam. From Count Rockin’ Sidney and the Southern Folklife Collection, may your X-mas be a “Soul Christmas”
