Years ago as I awaited my Santa Claus delivery in earnest, I often wondered if Dylan like me was a closet ‘Little Drummer Boy’ fan. Much of Dylan’s music was probably inspired by that song. Why? Because Little drummer boy had the hallmarks of a great Dylan Christmas track if there ever was one. Then low and behold Dylan releases his own exquisite Drummer Boy rendition on his XMAS album. Strangely enough most of this dribble was overlooked by his biographers.
