Hi Ken,

I have looked up what a 'Blue Christmas' is (had me wondering as we usually talk about a 'White Christmas') and have found this on Wikipedia:
Blue Christmas, also called the Longest sleep in the Western Christian tradition, is a day in the Advent season marking the longest night of the year. On this day, some churches hold a church service which recognizes that the holidays are sometimes "blue" or filled with difficult feelings around painful life events such as death, disease, poverty, or abuse.

This year the shortest day is Sunday 22nd December.

Here is Elvis singing this number:

It's all about the music. Yamaha AR 80 Player.

Hi there I have played from the age of 13 and all my music is played in a sort of dance tempo style. Have worked in nearly all the North East clubs over the years. That gave me a good grounding. Cheers.

Hi Ken An interesting interpretation of that one. Liked the different use of sounds almost had a fairground feel in parts. Enjoyed it. John
