With our first foray into the holiday music scene Voodoo Doughnut Recordings is proud to present Christmas with John “Elvis” Schroder. You may know him as the big loveable Elvis impersonator that you can catch most weekends at the Saturday market or performing rousing renditions of covers down at Dantes with Karaoke From Hell.
Recorded in the early 90’s by Dean Fletcher, one of the great documenters of the Portland music scene, these tracks were originally featured on a small-run, full-length Elvis Christmas album.
Side A has Elvis crooning the yuletide kiss-and-tell classic, I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus over a simple beautiful arrangement. Side B is an original tune with lyrics by John “Elvis” Schroder and musical composition/backing by Courtney Taylor-Taylor & Peter Holmström of Portland, Oregon’s very own The Dandy Warhols.
