Day 5 - "Santa Claus (Do You Ever Come To The Ghetto)" - Carlene Davis and Trinity

Carlene Davis is a reggae / gospel singer who carved herself a chart career in Jamaica (via England and Canada) before returning to her gospel roots and the church, following her recovery from breast cancer in 1996.
 
The version of this superb slice of reggae posted here is significantly different from the version I'm playing as you're reading this though. In the full version lasting nearly eight minutes, there's an excellent dub rap from, presumably, the Trinity mentioned on the label. However, I can't find the full version and although a few YouTube links claim to be it, they are not. There's an obvious ending to the Davis vocal on the extended version though making me wonder if this has been spliced together somewhere. Still the four minutes odd of this is certainly worth checking out.
