The Best From July Of 2008


Here it is, the collection you've been waiting for since August of last year. This is the compilation I put together of 32 of the best tracks I shared out during last year's Christmas In July. It's taken me months to select all the tracks, but I just threw some art together here in the last hour or so, I hope you don't mind too much. But it's not about the art, it's about the great music. Here's the tracklisting with links to the day when I first shared the track in question.

(This thing isn't even finished uploading yet, and I've already found a typo in my track listing. Well, it's pretty minor, so I'm leaving it. Sorry. Now I've found two. I need a proof reader. Three...)
