Used Music-Track Thirty One-The End

Day late and a dollar short, that's me. I know it's the day after Christmas, but I just couldn't seem to get my act together yesterday to post the final track of this compilation. I had actually hoped to post three or four more tracks for this collection there in the last few days, but my eyes were bigger than my stomach, I guess. The last track gives you a little bit more fun on the Moog, and it repeats a title again, but it's really short so I don't think you'll mind. This had to be the oddest track that showed up in the middle of an otherwise normal double LP of Christmas tunes, Peace On Earth (Capitol STBB-585). You'll see what I mean when you download Douglas Leedy-Deck The Hall. If you really like this track, you can download the whole LP over at A Christmas Yuleblog, but you have to hurry. The Captain is taking down all of his shares first of the year. I hope you've all enjoyed this little compilation. It's been fun for me to put together, trying to find the hidden gems in those thrift store compilations you see all the time. Who knew that you could find such good music in those dusty grooves? Well, I did, and now you do. Sometime in the not-to-distant future, I hope to put together a little bit of artwork and a cover to go with this collection, so come back around when you get a chance.

Day late?
Dollar short?

Not to worry--technically speaking, for some of us, the season doesn't end until January 6, the actual "12th Day of Christmas" or Epiphany or as my folks called it "little Christmas".

Hope that helps!
Thanks so much for the sharity.
