Happy New Year!!!! I hope you had a Merry Christmas. I was in the South of Italy with my girlfriend's family for my first Italian Christmas. It was an experience! They know how to get it on. One big singalong.
Then I had my second musical Christmas, coming over to England on 28th for another Christmas dinner and another jam. With my brother Simon this time, who was visiting from the States. He's a fantastic harmonica player and has already played on lots of my albums.
For this year's Christmas album I recorded a few of the songs I played at shows in 2011. Simply, on the laptop with Simon. It's just a bit of fun. Hope you enjoy them.
1. Love is the drug - ROXY MUSIC [2:08]
2. Dancing queen - ABBA [2:14]
3. Live it up - MENTAL AS ANYTHING [1:50]
4. Rawhide - NED WASHINGTON [2:06]
5. Work song - NATHANIEL ADDERLEY, OSCAR BROWN JR. [3:52]
I've nothing planned for this year. Let's just see what happens. I'm sure good things will come. I hope for you too!
