and Season’s Greetings from Robbers on High Street

Clearing the Christmas tune backlog, here’s more festive fare with retro leanings. This little benediction from Robbers on High Street [previous mention] would make a fine closing track on your Christmas mix CD that you’re making up for all your friends. Hmm . . . good idea.

It’s a charming cover that feels like The Kinks’ “Better Things” in style and content, but all dressed up for the holidays. The tune was originally found on the album Daddy, Is Santa Really Six Foot Four? (Bar None) which is a quirky compilation of amateur song-poems from the 50s, 60s and 70s written by folks would mail in their lyrics to “professional musicians” who set them to music for a fee. Odd but sweet, and the Robbers’ version sounds good to me.

    Yes, yes, I like where you’re going with this, Heather.

    P.S. We’re all friends here, right?

  • Heather. I don’t know you and I’m not a poster/blogger, but I do read your blog and so enjoy it. I also have a great Holiday mix I made for friends as gifts in 2005 that I think you’d enjoy. Send me an email and I’ll send you the setlist or send me your address and I’ll send you a copy. Happy Holidays. Jill

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
