ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Merry Xmas and Happy Holidays from Christmas Jones!

Christmas Jones was a squirrelly & crude, homeless man from Worcester, just trying to find a warm place to get his head down and wishing he had a family to spend the holidays with.

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
Bells ring out on Christmas Eve and Mr Jones sets about trying to find a warm place to settle into as night falls and it starts to softly snow. Turned away by churches, shelters, & police stations, with no family and no place to go he is stuck wandering in a freezing hell-hole with frostbite coming hot on his tail.

Silent Night
Christmas Jones comes up with a way to get warm.... he heads to Ralph's bar and enjoys the company of a woman who buys him some whiskey and canoodles with him out the back of the bar. He's found a way to beat-off the cold for the time being.... All is calm.

Batman Smells
A friend outside the bar drunkenly regales them with a colorful tale about Santa Claus making a stop at the Hotel Vernon and getting into a little love connection with a woman of the night, she conned Santa and made off with his sleigh. And something else about a robin laying an egg. CJ nods in agreement and takes his lady by the hand to go to look for a spot in the alley so they can nestle in for the night and make their own love connection.

Deck The Halls
Snow falls heavily on this dark night lit only by the twinkling of Christmas lights peering through windows, CJ lights a fire in a trashcan where his drunken slumbering body can rest and get warm, he is joined by others looking to stay warm and alive. He and his lady nestle in together securing sweet dreams and peace on earth with love their hearts....

Hallelujah Chorus
Good morning! It’s Christmas Day. Christmas Jones' favorite day of the year. Powdered snow blankets the town as CJ fumbles with his pants and remembers the previous night as being a big success! He shuffles through the town panhandling and mumbling good tidings to all, receiving a dollar here and a dollar there, eventually gaining quite a profit due to the holiday spirit. Someone even gives him a fiver. He thinks about the whiskey he can buy himself with all that cash.... Hallelujah indeed.

We Wish You A Merry Christmas
Christmas Jones joins some drunken revelers walking the streets singing Christmas carols and spreading cheer, only to get shouts to keep the noise down, hollers of get-out-of-heres, and a series of boos. They all stumble back to the alley, light the fire and try to hunker down for the night with empty pockets and even emptier bellies.

Auld Lang Syne
Christmas Jones shares the news about the profits gained from his panhandling and sets off to buy cheap wine & pizzas for all. The gang lets out a cheer, and burst into song. Christmas realizes he has found what he has been looking for, it's been standing right in front of him this whole time. This community, these friends, they are his family. They put their arms around one another, slurp red wine and sing long and loud into the wee hours....

Happy new year! From, Christmas Jones
