XMAS: "Purple Snowflakes"

SamuraiFrog's Essential Christmas Songs #35. I like this psychedelic Christmas tune; it was recorded in 1965 but was unreleased until 1992 when it was released on a Motown Christmas compilation. Instead, he re-recorded it as the single "Pretty Little Baby," which just never sounded as good to me. I love the reverb in this song; it's one of those tracks that sounds like it's coming out of the darkness, which is good for a Christmas song, since we generally only have about five or six hours of overcast daylight in December...

I am fascinated that BOTH songs show up on my tablet with the YouTube images, butt only one on the computer.
