V/A - "Christmas In Tucson" (2007)

Once again I come to you, groveling at your feet, apologizing for the severe lack of posts. Though I have been "home" for a month now I am still not settled enough to bring you regular updates. Hopefully this week I will have my own place to live and this situation can be remedied!

So for now I offer you a nice bit of local color in the form of last year's Christmas album by Tucson musicians, "Christmas In Tucson". This album features a wide spectrum of styles, from the traditional to hardcore punk rock and all points in between. My favorites are the cover of Jona Lewie's Stop the Cavalry by Marianne Dissard and Little Black Cloud's melancholy Holiday Song.

Hope you enjoy it and I wish you a wonderful holiday season.
See you soon with lotsa rare vinyl rips for the New Year!
