My Favorite Christmas Songs 2020 #6

“Merry Christmas Baby,” Otis Redding, 1968.

This R&B Christmas standard was originally recorded in 1947 by Johnny Moore’s Three Blazers featuring Charles Brown on vocals. Redding’s cover ups the tempo and adds a distinctive electric organ.

TRIVIA: Charles Brown would go on to sing the classic “Please Come Home for Christmas” in 1960.
