christmas in harlem


"christmas comes but once a year,
and to me it brings good cheer,
and to everyone who loves wine and beer."

christmas tunes-
  • louis armstrong: christmas night in harlem
  • bessie smith: at the christmas ball
  • james brown: santa clause go straight to the ghetto
we always wanted to see james brown do a show at the apollo theater 3 blocks away. when we had the chance, something interfered.
james brown made his last appearance at the apollo for his own wake a few days after his death on christmas day . to hear some reportage from that event click on the jb 45 icon in the right hand column.
