July 2008

Here's yet another compilation made from the best of the Christmas in July shares, this time from 2008.  There's some great stuff on here, if I do say so myself.  This is about the only compilation I put together anymore, since I really prefer to share out entire albums, but it's still a lot of fun.  If you haven't downloaded this in years past, you really should get it now.  This is The Best From Ernie (Not Bert)'s Christmas In July 2008-Because It's Hot Out There (Ernie(Not Bert), 2008).  The links will take you to the day when I originally shared out the track, and many of them can still be downloaded there.  Links to the actual collection are down at the bottom.

Hello Downunder! Thanks for the note. Most of these old shares don't go anywhere anymore, but they've been reposted elsewhere. Have a look at some of the newer posts... This particular one should be here:

Well, hmmm, that does appear to be the most recent posting. I wonder when that disappeared? I'll have to get it back up sometime. Keep an eye open during July, I'll try...
