Lillian Briggs - Rock n Roll-y Poly Santa Clause
Lillian had a career peak from the mid 50's to early 60's selling well over a million singles for the Epic label. This was an Epic Christmas single circa 1961. She also later released tunes via Paramount, Coral, Sunbeam and Phillips and later after showbiz, invested in some resort property in South Florida. In fact it was her yacht "Monkey Business" that was lent out for a trip that included Senator Gary Hart and jeans model Donna Rice as fateful passengers. Lillian eventually died of lung cancer in 1998.
Anton Barbeau - Xmas Song
Sacramento based popsmith Anton Barbeau has risen from the paisley bubblegum stew and collaborated with neo-psychedelic tribe members like Bevis Frond, and Kimberley Rew of the Soft Boys. He's playing on New Year's Eve in his hometown as well...
Another up & coming indie rocker outfit with Xmas audio offerings is The Layaways from Chicago. They've put forth a few tracks for free online at their website including this version of O Christmas Tree...
