the pogues ft kirsty maccoll
fairytale of new york
the stone-cold christmas classic reissued with brand new artwork & the inclusion of an instrumental version on the B-side To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the original release - a perfect way to complete your drunken christmas reveries.
originally penned as a duet between shane macgowan & pogues bassist cat o’riordan, producer steve lilywhite played a decisive hand by asking his wife kirsty maccoll to provide a guide vocal demo. but the outcome was so good that they invited her to take the part on the final recording, & the rest is boozy christmas history!
