Sometime in the ’80s, my sister had me scouring record stores in the Twin Cities for a copy of Bing Crosby and David Bowie singing a duet of “Little Drummer Boy” that she wanted to give to her friend for Christmas. I never found it. A few years ago it turned up on a holiday sampler from Martha Stewart, of all things, and I’m sure can be found elsewhere.

Now we have YouTube.

Here’s the story behind the duet. Kinda cool. And that Martha Stewart CD has a couple other gems. Emmylou Harris just kills “The First Noel.”
