A Big Rock Aluminum Christmas
Damn, I miss Reverend Frost. His was our favorite blog out there in the whole worldwide interwebs. Our mixes are but a pale imitation of his brilliant work over the year. His "Bloody Christmas" mixes (scroll down), in particular, were slabs of Holiday genius. Let's hope he makes it back to us soon.
Well, we've had selections from Seasons 1,2, and 3 from past Big Rock Candy Mountain Holiday Blow-Outs on past Saturdays, but many songs from each season got left out (due to thematic reasons, repeated artists, space issues(do you really want to sit through a download 2-3 hours long?), etc.). Today, we're gathering up most of those lost orphans from each previous season for another peachy, Technicolor, spinning lights selection. And we're not done yet.
As usual, the mp3 link follows the track listing.
