Merry Christmas Baby

Chuck Berry - Merry Christmas Baby (Chess 1714), 1958

Here's the flip side to the "Run Rudolph Run" post featured earlier this month. Chess followed its usual pattern and coupled a top-notch high tempo rock'n'roll song and a slower tune by Berry. I really like it when Berry throws in a bit of "White Christmas" on his guitar.

Enjoy this one and everybody have a nice Christmas season and a happy new year!
