Day 10 - 'Christmas Must Be Tonight' - The Band

This gorgeous song from the pen of Robbie Robertson, finds Dylan's erstwhile companions in a comfortably religious mood. Beautifully restrained organ and - as you'd expect - top musicianship in a song that comes from their 1977 'Islands' album. I only heard this for the first time last year but I guess I was too busy pogoing and gobbing when it came out...

Listen to it here: Christmas Must Be Tonight
