Welcome to another non-denominational Green Monkey Christmas! Here at GMR we welcome everyone who likes a little Christmas music, regardless of race, creed, color, gender identity, religion, preferred football team and/or voting record. For this year’s Xmas downloadable album All I Want For Christmas: GMR Xmas VII, we present you with a variety of totally independent artists expressing their personal views on the holidays, whatever they may be. This year’s topics include holiday food, wildlife, dogs, black eyes, commercialism, holiday faves and more. How jolly indeed!
This year we have eighteen selections, an all-time new high. As always, when I put the word out around the beginning of October, I have zero idea who wants to do a tune this year, so it is always fun to see what turns up. Some of the folks are what you could call regulars by now, having done this for several years, some are first-timers. We welcome them all and say thanks for their contributions. Because we record this so close to the holiday, the only place you can get this download is right at Green Monkey or at our bandcamp site. iTunes etc. will have to catch up later.
As always the proceeds we bring in from this will be donated to charity, this year it will be the same as the last few years, MusiCares, a very fine charity that helps music people in need and to which we are proud to contribute.
