Over At Lee's Place

I wanted to point you to another interesting download over at Lee's place, or, as he actually calls it, Music You (Possibly) Won't Find Anyplace Else. (Did I get it right this time?) This extremely low budget release on the Power Pak label screams that it has Bobby Helms doing his big hit Jingle Bell Rock, but it's a much later re-recording that can't hold a candle to the original. The other tracks are by artists that I'd bet a shiny new dime you have never heard of. Well, most of them anyhow. But the sheer variety of styles on here is impressive. Different tracks highlight different instruments, like guitars, pianos, vibes and, um, steel guitar. OK, so maybe it doesn't have that big of a variety. But it does have Bobby Helms! Go see Lee and download Christmas Album (Power Pak PO-507, 1975). Well, I thought that was the title. The flipside calls this Christmas Classics, which is at least a little less generic...
