It is so good to be back at OSML. This will make my recuperation complete!

Of course December means Holiday oldies and since this has been the year of Motown 50 I am,  naturally, closing out the year with holiday tunes sung my Motown artists.

I decided to start out with the Mel  Torme & Robert Wells penned perennial favorite “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting).  What better way to invoke the holiday spirit that this timeless tune.

This version is from the Tempting Temptations’ first holiday collection from 1970 entitled “Christmas Card.”

I selected this song since it is one of the few leads Otis William has had during his tenure as a Temptation and thought you might enjoy hearing it.
