    Default Favorite Christmas Music

    I can't believe it's 12/10 already and not only have I barely started Christmas shopping but I have hardly played ANY carols. I try to add a few new discs every year to my expanding collection of Holiday music (I have a lot already). This year I added
    1) The Don Ho Christmas Album
    2) Latino Christmas (Narada Artists)
    3) Oh Christmas Tree - A Bluegrass Holiday Christmas
    4) Star of Wonder - Christmas with Peter Buffet and the New World Ensemble
    5) Casey Kasem's All Time Favorite Christmas Collection (2 discs)
    6) Los Lonely Boys - Christmas Spirit

    My all time favorites are:
    1) GRP Christmas, Volumes 1-3
    2) Time Life Christmas Treasury
    3) Lorenna McKennit - A Winter Garden

    So Many that I love though. Last year I got "Ho, Ho, Hoey" The Complete Gary Hoey Collection. It's spinning as I type.

    I saw the Dylan song on tv the other night and went "Is that Bob?"

    In fairness it is a great party song.

    The only Christmas CDs I own are the Very Special Christmas library and Merry Axemas volumes 1 and 2. The very Special Christmas albums are fund raisers for people with special needs. A very worthy cause sweetend by the fact that the tunes are performed by very well known artists including Eric Clapton, Bon jovi, Cheryl Crow, Stevie Wonder and Tom to name a few.

    The Merry Axemas collection is mostly instrumentals and are mainly comprised of a little heavier selections. Artists include Zak Wylde, Robin Trower, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Joe Satriani and Steve Vai.

    Here's a cool one called - He's So Jolly
    Its a funny song set to the music Hello Dolly by Louis Armstrong. They did a really good job.

    Howabout this quick one - We Wish You Weren't Living With Us.

    Honey, I'm spending money on guitars or women, ... your choice.

    I love the ELP one

    "They said there'd be snow at Christmas,
    They said there'd be peace on earth
    but instead it just kept on raining
    frail tears for the virgin birth"


    And Setzer.....he is a Christmas Cat f'sure!
