Christmas Song Of The Week - Paul Simon - Getting Ready For Christmas Day
A lesser known Christmas tune from four years ago, finds Paul Simon getting ready, getting topical and mixing and matching his festive fare with a recoding of the Rev. J. M. Gates’ 1941 sermon, also entitled Getting Ready For Christmas Day. Only Christmas record to namecheck “Iraq” – as far as we know.
