An album I keep coming back to.
From R&B to folk, this varied CD set has something for every musical taste.
Lots of the songs are originals as well. As someone who has a large (200+)
mostly folk Christmas CD collection, I highly recommend this compilation!
Home grown Christmas
I am a certified Yulehead and collect all types of Christmas music so I am
always looking for items that are out of the mainstream. This compilation of
Rochester NY area artists fits the bill. Over the span of 3 CDs there are
original tunes, well known and obscure Christmas songs all played with the
sincerity that only independent artists/labels seem to be producing these days.
Sure, there are a few moments where the artist's amatuer status shows thru but I
consider these like marks in fine leather. I can't think of a true clinker in the
whole bunch. There are several that I plan on putting on this year's Christmas
compilation knowing they will become new holiday favorites. That a percentage of
the purchase price is being donated to benefit animals is just icing on the cake.
It's all here from cantatas to blues to personal statements about Christmas.
This one has been in the CD player for weeks and it's only October.
