Erik's musical Advent calendar - December 21

Detroit Junior - Christmas Day

A real obscurity in Erik's musical Advent calendar today as we pave way for blues pianist Detroit Junior, born Emery Williams Jr. in 1931, and no, not in Detroit, Michigan, but Haynes, Arkansas. He began his career in Detroit, backing touring musicians like Amos Milburn, Eddie Boyd and John Lee Hooker, thus his stage name, but later made a career for himself in Chicago, His "Christmas Day" single was released in 1960, and has popped up on sundry "eclectic" Christmas compilations, and that's basically how come anyone's heard it or even heard of it. It's a great stomper of jolly fun, perfect for any Christmas party.
