I asked my Dad what he wanted for Christmas every year and he would say, “World Peace and My Two Front Teeth.” I always assumed it was an old reference from his childhood. Pretty sure I asked him before and after being confused by his request. R.I.P. Dempsy Porter. There will never be another like you in my lifetime. Here’s a song about world peace in your memory.
“World of Love” is actually performed by former Dap-Tones member, Binky Griptite. I can’t do my annual Sharon Jones Christmas post without y’all hearing her voice. Enjoy “Ain’t No Chimneys in the Projects” and enjoy your loved ones this holiday season. R.I.P. Sharon Jones.
