Day 11 - "Who Took The Merry Out Of Christmas" - The Staple Singers

Well, I sure hope it's no-one on this blog anyway!

Here's 'Pop' Staples with his children Cleotha, Pervis, Yvonne and Mavis on a Gospel tinged R 'n' B number. "Too busy having fun / Drinking with everyone / Showing no respect for Mary's baby son"  Ain't that the truth, brother!

Sadly, Cleotha passed away earlier this year but Mavis continues to lend her vocal weight to numerous projects and long may that continue.
