Down On Santa
Welcome back to day two of our Holiday blow-out. Remember, we're going daily with this thing (barring too much egg nog), so keep stopping back, y'all.
We've got a couple of Mountain favorites spreading the Yuletide joy today. Last year's Best Album of the Year feller, Hayes Carll twangs his way through a family gathering at Yuletime. And Jim Mize (who we'll hear more from later) takes a slow-burner to to the ends of the earth (Mississippi) for a tale of Christmas spent alone and dreaming.
Our bonus tracks, coming once again from our first "season", ramp up the trash with a couple of classics from the original snot-nosed garage punks The Wailers and The Sonics. Y'all already know these tunes, but they're so goddamn good that it's worth a re-visit.
Naughty or Nice??!!??
Hayes Carll: Grateful For Xmas (mp3)
Jim Mize: Christmas In Mississippi (mp3)
Bonus Stocking Stuffers
The Sonics: Don't Believe In Christmas (mp3)
The Wailers: Christmas Spirit (mp3)
