We welcome December in the old traditional way, with some Dutch blues-rock from the late 1960s. It comes courtesy of Cuby + Blizzards. Cuby's real name was Harry Muskee, but Harry + Blizzards doesn't have quite the same ring to it I suppose.
On "Appleknockers Flophouse" Harry's vocals remind me very much of Tim Rose, who was also known for his apple-related tunes. I've added one for the purpose of comparison.
"Appleknockers Flophouse" - Cuby + Blizzards
"Checkin' Up On My Baby" - Cuby + Blizzards
"Apple Truck Swamper" - Tim Rose
While we are on the subject of apples...
