Description

More Doo Wop Christmas Gems, Koko Mojo Records (KM-CD-95) is a thirty-song compilation full of Christmas cheer, and the plethora of sounds are compiled with the joyful holiday period in mind. The album embraces songs about, dancing, Santa Claus, the Holy Night, returning home, and bringing in a brand-new year. The album is a musical all-around look at the traditions which are aspects of the celebration, sang by both Negro and a handful of Caucasian artists. The staff at Koko Mojo Records metaphorically raises a glass and wishes you, your family, and friends all the best and a prosperous New Year, and we thank you for your continued support. The album continues the concept of Let's Have A Doo Wop Christmas (KM-CD-78) with a flashback to earlier times with songs about Santa Claus, either getting hip (The Marquees), doing the boogie, or getting the blues (The Voices and Huey Piano Smith). The coming together of family and friends I'll Be Home For Christmas (The Pilgrim Travellers), or sadness when away from someone, Marvin & The Chirps I Will Miss You This Christmas or the ultimate separation through incarceration, Christmas In Jail (The Youngsters). The colorful aspect of Christmas is approached through decoration, The Christmas Tree (The Episodes) and excitement of things soon to happen, Limbo Under The Bed (The Classic Four). A sprinkling of seasonal humor is included Santa Claus Got Stuck (In My Chimney) (Ella Fitzgerald), merriment and fantasy, Dance Mr. Snowman Dance (The Crew Cuts), and childhood memories of the Winter Wonderland (Blue Notes). The album furthermore emphasizes the latter part of the celebration namely the ringing of the bells and a brand-new year and the resolution made by people (The Dell Vues and The Faces), the proclamation of, Hello Mr. New Year (The Cool Breezers). The album is concluded with the question asked of family, friends, and lovers, What Are You Doing New Year's Eve (Dante and The Evergreens).
