Hey kids, here’s one last pre-Christmas post to warm the cockles of yer frozen hearts. It’s about that long-lost 1995 Christmas compilation to which the Old 97’s contributed a couple of tracks, Honkey-Tonk Holidays. I couldn’t agree more with the post’s author, Robert Wilonsky, that “Rhett Miller has a voice made for Christmas carols.”

Plus, Wilonksy’s got a link for you to download an MP3 of “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”! If you just have to have the CD – and since nearly every track’s a winner, who can blame you? – I actually saw, for the first time in years, a single unopened copy on a store’s shelves, at Dallas’ CD World, just a couple of weeks ago!

So ho, ho, ho, and Merry Christmas one and all!
