Jed Luckless - Hundred Year Hall, December 23, 2009

Last year on December 23, Jed Luckless performed an incredible concert consisting of nothing but Christmas music.  That concert can now be downloaded from the Internet Archive.
The performance is practically a one-stop shopping resource for contemporary Christmas music, starting with "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch," and moving through favourites like "Winter Wonderland," "Blue Christmas," "Feliz Navidad," John Lennon's "Happy Xmas," and "Little Drummer Boy."  I am a huge fan of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, so I was delighted to find a few songs from that movie on here, namely the title track, "Silver and Gold," and "Holly Jolly Christmas."  He also manages to combine music from two of my favourite Christmas specials by including a little snippet of "Linus & Lucy" (from A Charlie Brown Christmas) in the middle of "Frosty the Snowman."   There is even a great version of Adam Sandler's "The Hannukah Song" near the end of the show.  All of the songs are mostly done on just acoustic guitar and vocals, and they are all performed extremely well.  This is the kind of album that can be listened to in a variety of situations throughout the Christmas season.

I came across a little windfall of Christmas music last night in the form of a dozen releases from NoiseTrade, the site where I originally heard of the Sara Groves album.  That brings my total number of potential releases to write about up to 37 - in other words. I now officially have more than enough music to write about from now until Christmas, making my goal theoretically possible for the first time.  Happy listening (and a Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers)!
