Christmas 2011

Hey everyone, how's it going?  I've been listening to Christmas music for a couple of weeks now, and I think I'm finally ready to start writing about it.

I haven't had a lot of time for blogging this year (in fact, I think I only managed to make one post on my other blog all year, and that was back in January), but I'm hoping to be able to make some time for Christmas music posts over the next few weeks.  I think one reason I've been so hesitant to post anything is the fact that I like to be very thorough about things, which ends up being very time consuming - it takes multiple listens to an album before I feel ready to write about it, and it also takes a long time to write the actual post.  I'm going to try relaxing a bit this year - posts probably won't be as long and detailed as in past years, and I won't be overly concerned with having to say something about every single song on an album.  In a way, this could end up being even more challenging for me than trying to write a new post every day!  But for the love of free Christmas music (which hasn't diminished a bit - I still find myself scouring multiple sources whenever I have the time, looking for new songs and interesting takes on old songs), it should be a lot of fun.

While I finish figuring out just how I'm going to approach this, I welcome any comments that anyone may have.  Is there anything you'd like to see posted here - maybe a song, an artist, or a style that hasn't been covered before?  Got a link to some good Christmas music?  Please post it!  After all, this blog would not exist without you, my readers, so if there's any way I can make it a better experience for you, please let me know.


Also, just for fun, I've decided to create a Google+ page about the blog.  There's nothing there yet, and to be honest I'm still not certain what kind of content will be there, but if you're on Google+ and would like to circle the page, please do!

Welcome back Jeff. Looking forward to reading (and listening to) what you find this year.

May just be me, but I think I've been finding it increasingly more difficult to find good stuff for free download. There was a time when I had a huge backlog of stuff for Free Download Friday but lately, I've been scrabbling about at the last minute trying to find something. Hoping to do a four free downloads in advent again this year but at the moment, I only have one to offer!

Looking forward to seeing what you uncover.

Cheers to both of you! This should be fun.

I actually have quite a bit of stuff to go through, some of which will surely end up on the blog. Nearly a gigabyte so far, and only a few albums are older ones that I never got around to posting about in prior years - I had a hard drive failure earlier this year which wiped out most of the free music I had accumulated over the years, so I'm starting over almost from scratch. I have a few sources that I go to year after year (e.g. Jamendo and NoiseTrade), and I also have an RSS feed for a Google search that usually yields a couple of good links a day.

Hello, and happy holidays!

The Internet Archive has lots of free music; some of which is even Christmas-related! Like "Tidings of Comfort", an EP single from Comfort Stand recordings.

I know this is about free music, but I simply LOVE this video Christmas card (also from the Internet Archive):

I've used it as my own holiday e-card in the past.
