The Good, The Bad, and Other Christmas Favorites!

by Various Artists

Christmas In Olympia I think that I’ll go downtown A chill is in the air Gonna get a little gift For someone I care about Think I’ll get some chocolate at Encore Chocolate and Teas Gonna hit up Rainy Day Records For Christmas songs from Beat Happening Christmas In Olympia Going to the Capitol Rotunda Gonna hug their festive tree Gonna head to the Capitol Theater for the Procession of Species Christmas Jamboree Rolling up to Eastside Big Tom’s Get my girl a peppermint shake Hangin’ out in Sylvester Park I think I see that first snow flake David Scherer Water say Forty-one bars in our downtown That’s a lot of Christmas cheer Baby gonna meet you at the Rhythm and Rye Christmas In Olympia
Gather up your friends Gather up your family Hold close those that you hold dear Take your time with them Hear the words they have to say Count those blessings for the year Christmas is love Gather in the kitchen Sit before the fire Watch the evening turn dark blue Take part of your day To greet the world out side Help others more unfortunate than you. Christmas is love If you’re feeling lonely Misunderstood You can let it go today There is hope now coming If you only let it Take a look outside In the morning we may Travel far away To the places we call home Before we leave let’s make a promise to hold dear This day we shared and hope for many more Christmas is love
What Child is this who, laid to rest On Mary's lap is sleeping? Whom Angels greet with anthems sweet, While shepherds watch are keeping? This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing; Haste, haste, to bring Him laud, The Babe, the Son of Mary. Why lies He in such mean estate, Where ox and ass are feeding? Come have no fear God's Son is here His love all love preceding Nails, spear shall pierce Him through, The cross he borne for me, for you. Hail, hail the Word made flesh, The Babe, the Son of Mary.


Welcome to December!

It is time for our ninth 100% downloadable Xmas album in a row – eight by a variety of mostly Pacific Northwest artists. As always, it is a charity album – all the money we collect will go to MusiCares, a fine charity that helps out music people in need. This year’s edition has some of the usual suspects, some new-comers, you know - the regular deal.

This year’s model has been more interesting than usual at a technical basis. I had Pro Tools (which I use to record some of the songs and master the album) completely fail and spent a week rebuilding my computer and getting everything to work. Our GMR web page only works about half way and we are working on a Plan B. We will update you on that later, but for now we will mostly be coming at you via Facebook, our newsletter and our bandcamp sales page. Who cares about that kind of boring stuff? Not Santa, that’s for sure.

So here we go – thanks to everyone who contributed this year and thanks to all of you who support our musical rambling throughout the year.

Check out the tunes and share them with everyone in the whole wide world, from North Pole to South Pole and all points in between!

See you in January,
