Santacular Christmas Countdown – #13 – The Tractors

The Tractors – “The Santa Claus Boogie” – Oklahoma rock and roll boogie from the Tractors, a bunch of guys whose stew of New Orleans piano and Tulsa shuffle created some unique music in the 1990’s.  I love the way the vocals of leader Steve Ripley sound (miked close  and in your ear), and the whole group’s rough and ready harmonies.  Too unique for country radio today, they didn’t even really fit in anywhere in their brief run, and are a one-hit wonder.  Iconoclastic yet familiar with their mix of musical influences.
