Today it is Shaking’ Steven’s turn to put us in a Christmas Spirit…
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the classic ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’.
To celebrate the occasion, it was suggested that Stevens re-record the song, in the style of his new album.
How could one resist? So, adopting a feel of Folk Rock (as used on some of the tracks on the new album), the song has been re-recorded, with the new title ‘Echoes Of Merry Christmas Everyone’.
Members of Shaky’s family were Salvationists since the late 1800’s, and so the proceeds from the Artist’s royalties for this year of release will be donated to the Salvation Army, to help with the excellent work of this caring charitable organization, as they celebrate their 150th anniversary.
