Rudy Ray Moore puts the XXX in Xmas and burns the proverbial yule log with Norton's deluxe 30th anniversary edition of this legendary artist's classic 1971 holiday party platter complete with bonus material and unpublished photos. The song "Merry Christmas, Baby" starts things off – a slow, dusty blues number bolstered by a wobbly but upright backing band. The song itself is PG, extolling the virtues of a caring partner and the joy of the season. Truth be told, it's a warm and wonderful holiday song. Good old fashioned family fun. But with the man also known Dolomite, the "down and dirty" is never far away.
Side 2 is where things get good (and X-rated). It all starts with Rudy retelling "The Night Before Christmas" – with his grooving backing band – in his trademark raunchy style. Also included, a psychedelic blues number, detailing Brother Rap's visit to heaven (to get dirty, of course). And it all finishes up with a thematically appropriate Christmas themed tale, with the term motherfucker used in potentially record-breaking numbers. It's what you'd expect from the legendary, foul-mouthed, groundbreaking comedy legend.
A perfect way to keep the holidays from becoming too much of a Hallmark moment!
