Ah yes, go ahead and inhale the fecund ether of the season. Lit Up Like A Christmas celebrates the, er, other side of seasonal tidings — holiday esoterica from the far corners of vintage jazz, twang, fuzz, scuzz, r&b, blues, country, garage, lounge and beyond. And by beyond, I mean Sun Ra doing a Christmas song.

Both volumes have been re-upped, including the much expanded spotify versions (that are highly recommended). Stuff your stockings and have a nip of this nog, below . . .

  1. Thanks for the compilations, sound like fun. The Volume Two has no track numbers assigned. Is there a play order they should be in, as otherwise it defaults to song title alphabetically A-Z…

  2. I think the play order for volume 2 is the one on the original post,

  3. Hiya just to say I have posted the links to you (note: not to the Zippyshare files) and the Christmas Lit up duo of compilations on my little webpage. Hope this is OK and if not please let me know and I will take the add for AD down . . . . . . Merry Chrimbo Wassnames!

  4. The only Christmas music that gets played in our little restaurant here in central Kansas. Thank you so much!

  5. So so good! Thanks for sharing.

  6. Nice
