On the Right Side of Christmas 2020

       I don't have anything insightful or deep to say about Christmas music (or Christmas) in a pandemic, though I do think the cover art for this year's comp is somehow apt for 2020.   As usual, I've re-upped all the previous Xmas compilations.  Also, if you're looking for a deeper dig into Christmas music, I highly recommend the site Hip Christmas.

It's a little bit of Christmas in a big wide internet. :)

Thank you for your hard work on the mixes.
Your effort is much appreciated.

I'm a Johnny-come-lately here... sure am enjoying your mixes.
If I might ask for an early Christmas present, which of course I do not deserve, would you re-up your mix of the mix of Smiths and Elliott Smith covers. Very, very clever.

And a fine bit of Christmas it is. Love the two most recent posts on your site!

Quite welcome. The Xmas comps generally aren't too much effort - there's just so much good stuff to choose from.

Glad you like the site. I've just re-upped the Smiths and Elliott Smith tributes. Hope you like them.
