Xmas On The Bayou

Of the many great unsung heroes of the underground Xmas music world I wish I could have met and interviewed, the late great Sidney Simien aka Rockin’ Sidney and Count Rockin’ Sidney, one of the most intriguing R&B/Zydeco/Soul cats who became very well know, beginning in the late 50s, across the bayou as one of the most intriguing zydeco musicians of his era. Sadly, he passed away (15 years ago today) at just 60 years of age.

Check out THIS cut, “Party This Christmas” one of a dozen off of Rockin’ Sidney’s MUST HAVE Xmas LP “A Christmas Celebration With Rockin’ Sidney.” Check out our Facebook page for the fabulous cover image!
