Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a little bit of Shakin' Stevens, would it?
But does anybody remember Shaky before his hits?
Decades before Duffy's million-selling Rockferry, her rock 'n' rollin' compatriot released the album of covers illustrated below. It didn't trouble the charts.

On this album he not only covers Presley, he also covers Dylan. The two greatest icons of American popular song! Whaddabout that Shaky, eh?
