and Season's Greetings from Robbers on High Street

Clearing the Christmas tune backlog, here's more festive fare with retro leanings. This little benediction from Robbers on High Street [previous mention] would make a fine closing track on your Christmas mix CD that you're making up for all your friends. Hmm . . . good idea.

It's a charming cover that feels like The Kinks' "Better Things" in style and content, but all dressed up for the holidays. The tune was originally found on the album Daddy, Is Santa Really Six Foot Four? (Bar None) which is a quirky compilation of amateur song-poems from the 50s, 60s and 70s written by folks would mail in their lyrics to "professional musicians" who set them to music for a fee. Odd but sweet, and the Robbers' version sounds good to me.

Yes, yes, I like where you're going with this, Heather.

P.S. We're all friends here, right?

Heather. I don't know you and I'm not a poster/blogger, but I do read your blog and so enjoy it. I also have a great Holiday mix I made for friends as gifts in 2005 that I think you'd enjoy. Send me an email and I'll send you the setlist or send me your address and I'll send you a copy. Happy Holidays. Jill
