Cy Coleman’s vintage Christmas tune “He’s Stuck in the Chimney Again” is available today on iTunes! Recorded by The Jon Rauhouse Orchestra ft. Rachel Flotard, this rarely-heard holiday gem was written in 1966 by Cy Coleman (The Best is Yet to Come, Witchcraft, Big Spender) and Floyd Huddleston (Disney’s animated features The Aristocats & Robin Hood, tunes for Midnight Cowboy, Highway To Love, You Started Something). The performance features one of our favorite multi-intrumentalists, Jon Rauhouse (Neko Case, Kelly Hogan, Sally Timms) and his orchestra featuring singer Rachel Flotard of Visqueen fame with Tommy Connell on guitar, Nick Luca on piano, John Marston on bass and Matthew Watkins on drums.
