Christmas Kitsch

Hey everybody. Let me introduce myself. I'm Brainwerk and I run a blog called Check The Cool Wax. I try to post mostly out of print records that lean toward novelty, tv/movie personality, kitsch, lounge, odd, etc. For a sample of the things you find there, check out Volume One. I'm really excited to be able to contribute to Christmas A Go Go! My first post is a 1961 record from a guy called Lenny Dee. In my humble opinion, he the unsung hero of the lounge-fueled crazy organ. I think the stand-out tracks are Sleigh Ride and Mister Santa (played to the tune of Mr. Sandman). You will either really like this or poke your ears out with a sharp object.
