July 2007

Same as I did last week, I want to highlight an old collection that features the best from my annual Christmas in July share-a-thon, this time from 2007.  Each summer I record and share Christmas and holiday music from non-holiday records, usually sharing 100 to 200 songs all told, some good, some bad, most of it in the middle somewhere.  Then between summer and winter, I try to sift through it all and put together a collection that features the very best of what I found.  What you're looking at here is that collection, circa 2007.  I think there's some really great stuff on here, and it holds together well as an album.  So grab yourself a copy of The Absolute Best Tracks From Ernie (Not Bert)'s Christmas In July 2007 Edition.  You'll be glad you did.  The track list is below, and each title links to the day I originally shared the track, in case you want to learn a bit more about it.  Links to the complete download are at the bottom.
