Bluesy rudolph

Chuck Berry released 'Run Rudolph Run' in 1958. It was the B-side of his big hit 'Merry Christmas Baby'. It was written by Johnny Marks, who also wrote 'Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer'. Now American rock-blues singer-songwriter Samantha Fish, from Kansas, comes out with a nice bluesy cover on 7 inch, available with two different colour motives. It's backed by a sort of country-blues version from Phil Spector's 'Chrismas (Baby Please Come Home)'.

In 1978 Keith Richard (Rolling Stones) did a crazy version of 'Run Rudolph Run' and released it on single has his first solo record! Here's a version where you can hear both  Chuck and Keith.
