JOEY RAMONE Christmas Spirit… In My House (2002)

Christmas Spirit Spirit… In My House (2002)
Hey Ho… Ho Ho

This is about as Christmas-y as we get around here. This… and The Beatles Christmas Album (HERE). I don’t know much about how this holiday EP was constructed, but it was most likely similar to Joey’s posthumous solo album, Don’t Worry About Me (whose title track is reprised here), with a lot of friends finishing off material Joey had been working on before his death in 2001. The lead off track, “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home),” is the Phil Spector classic penned by Barry/Greenwich, and Ronnie Spector shows up here to lend some vocal support. We’ve got a slew of Bonus Track Ramones in the archives (HERE). Pretty expensive at Amazon (HERE).

    … which I quite liked, especially “Cabin Fever”.

    Happy Christmas!

    Willard,

    Thank you so much for this and for all the other offerings and the community.

    The music has really helped me get through some tough things.

    Oh, yeah, and the movies are pretty neat, too. One of Santa’s gifts to my family was a MST3K collection including The Crawling Eye!

    Thanks,

    Ace
