Bob Dylan-593x800

I got an email yesterday from reporter Todd Martens (who did a nice piece about us in Billboard a few years back) who was looking for some comments about the forthcoming Bob Dylan Christmas album.

Todd was specifically interested in the tracklist and what a Christmas music expert thought would be a good song for Dylan.

For some reason my thoughts went instantly to the Alfred Burt carols.  I’m not sure why.  I’m know there are some “folkier” choices I could have come up with, but the Burt carols just seemed to make sense and “Some Children See Him” made the most sense.

It’s not terribly well known.  James Taylor recorded it a few years ago.  It’s on Tennessee Ernie Ford’s Star Carol album (along with the Burt-penned title song).  But the version I’m most familiar with is Andy Williams’s.

So, check the article on the LA Times site and then let me know in the comments (or on the forums) if I made the right call….
