A day early rather than a day late (for a change), here's the 2014 Holiday Edition of Pilsner's Picks. I'm still fooling around with the uploads and page formatting, so now I've returned to posting the MP3 files as individual tracks rather than as a playlist. If nothing else, it looks better this way!
Since I don't have a whole lot of Xmas-type music in my collection, some of these tunes have appeared before (but not recently) and others have absolutely nothing to do with the holidays; they're just the regular eclectic selection of Picks vintage platters.
Of historical note here, though, is the first-ever recording of "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town," which has only been recorded about a billion times or so since its debut in 1934. It's one of the all-time classics of the genre, of course— but I prefer the more adult Yuletide sentiments of Ozie Ware and Washboard Pete.
This is not your parents' Holiday music, it's your grandparents'...or even your great-grandparents'!
