Re-released last week for the first time since 1978: Keith Richards’s first solo single, a killer take of Chuck Berry’s rock-and-roll Christmas classic. My wife found a semi-decent digital version of this on Napster a few years ago, where by “semi-decent” I mean “good enough to listen to but you could hear the needle dropping on the turntable the guy used to record it to MP3”.
Worth checking out just for the photo of Keith on the album art. (The song’s in the DRM-free iTunes Plus format, to boot.)
