Santa's Going South For Christmas (RSD Picture Disc)
Vinyl 2019 Solo

Liner Notes

Originally written in 2010 just in time to debut at a holiday fundraiser benefiting Homeward Bound, The Ritter Center and 17 Throckmorton, Sammy & The Wabos were joined in a live performance by fellow Marin residents and Grateful Dead musicians Bob Weir and Mickey Hart of The Grateful Dead. Sammy then teamed up with buddy Toby Keith for the 2011 holiday season, making this a duet as the pair share verses and the song was given a proper release. 

In 2014, Sammy performed the song live with friend Nancy Wilson for the  Heart & Friends: Home For The Holidays special.

In 2015, Sammy performed a live version of the song with Hawaiian musician Willie K for Alice Cooper's New Year's Eve fundraiser for Maui Food Bank.

In 2019 the song was released as a special picture disc for Record Store Day, with the b-side an unreleased live version of "Eagles Fly" from the 2019 Sammy Hagar & The Circle tour.

In 2021, Sammy & The Circle recorded a version as part of the Lockdown Sessions.
