    Songs For Christmas?

    Anyone grab Sufjan Stevens box Christmas set? The pink haired, pierced and tatoo'd girl at the record store sold out and didn't rat hole one for me. Used on Amazon they're going for 50 bucks right now. Of course the day after Christmas I can probably score one for about 5 bucks. I ended up ordering straight from the label and it shipped out today so I should get to hear most of it before Christmas is over.

    So, overated piece of shiite or indie wannabe essential?

    didn't grab it eh?

    Should have.

    Freaking awesome!

    I'm not even really a fan.

    Weird little set though. 5 EPs varying in length averaging about 21 minutes per disc. I know that Asthmatic Kitty tries to always offer Sufjan Stevens items on vinyl but the play times are so short that it would be a major pain in the buttusko. I may or may not have a sampler in the works. Depends on many factors but I would highly recomend that you check your local indie emporium and see if they still have a box available if you're at all interested in Christmas +indie.

    Thanks for the heads-up on this, JC. It's been a long time since I added anything to the Christmas collection. I've been stuck on the following for years:

    Merry X-mas from the Space-Age Bachelor Pad - Esquivel
    Ultra-Lounge Christmas Cocktails
    A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector
    A Charlie Brown Christmas - Vince Guaraldi Trio

    (I think...think, based on certain clues, that the wife might be gettin' me Yule Struttin', a Blue Note Christmas comp, but don't say anything.)

    My deleted reply was merely a link to a Spinal Tap clip of Christmas With The Devil that didn't work for some reason. Stupid and pointless anyway but still kinda fun.

    and my reply was more generally to everyone since there weren't any posts to the thread. Not that unusual lately but seemed pretty clear that this release went unnoticed except for the really cool folk here ; )

    I'm enjoying it. Does that mean that I can sit with the cool kids?

    I think he should have named the whole thing Get Behind Me, Santa.

    It'll be spinning today for sure (once I recover from last night, that is).

    If I was to make a comp the track list would look like this:

    1 O Come O Come Emmanuel
    2 It’s Christmas, Let’s Be Glad!
    3 Put The Lights On The Tree
    4 Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing
    5 I Saw Three Ships
    6 Once In Royal David’s City
    7 What Child Is This Anyway?
    8 Let’s Boogie To The Elf Dance
    9 O Holy Night
    10 That Was The Worst Christmas Ever
    11 Away In A Manger
    12 Hey Guys! It’s Christmas Time!
    13 Did I Make You Cry On Christmas
    Well, You Deserved it)
    14 Joy To The World
    15 Get Behind Me Santa
    16 Christmas In July
    17 Star Of Wonder
    18 The Winter Solstice

    and the cover would probably be something simple like this:Songs For Christmas?-christmas-cover-small.jpg

    It should probably be included in any theoretical file but sometimes I forget to do things.

    Yeah, and in theory EAC wouldn't flip the artist/song title meta tag data (winkie)

    I tried pulling a track list from the CD ini from EAC and got nothing which is what prompted my outloud musings. Of course I wouldn't rule out having done something wrong as it's generally accepted that I usually do.

    I think it's an EAC script thing. Nobody's 2006er was the same way. Not a big deal and fixed on my end in a couple of minutes.
