Though not as grand as Darlene's original, it's still a pretty lovely version. Basic track was recorded at a sound-check, Darlene Love's backing vox were overdubbed later. No matter what ya'all think of Bongo, the dude can sing.

And this (though not expressly a Christmas song): a Woody Guthrie tune that sounds like the LC/S! era Clash; dig the anger in Bongo's voice. Sounds like he means/feels every word.

Bozo, Bongo! Show some bloody respect will you. His name is Bonio and was so called after a dog biscuit.

A bit late I know but I'd never heard this even though I've got all Waits' albums. It's one of the most beautiful things I've heard in quite a while.

Holy shit. Same here. What is that from?

Never knew about this album (from '89 apparently) or the organization, which seems pretty cool.

That performance really got to me - been a long time since a song made me break down on first listening.
