Okay, this will be the last of the Christmas posts, then we'll start properly looking forward.
I did a CD for a few friends this month in lieu of the Best of the Month, which will make a fierce return to action at the end of January. This one was simple - a few covers that had a bit of a Christmas vibe about them (without actually being Christmas songs). A touch of gentleness in the season of business. So here's the tracklisting...
1. State Trooper (Bruce Springsteen) - The Veils
2. Fourth Time Around (Bob Dylan) - Calexico
3. When I Get To The Border (Richard & Linda Thompson) - She & Him
4. Solitary Man (Neil Diamond) - Crooked Fingers
5. White Winter Hymnal (Fleet Foxes) - Dirty Mittens
6. Paper Planes (M.I.A.) - Panda Riot
7. When Doves Cry (Prince) - Nadeah
8. Graceland (Paul Simon) - Grizzly Bear
9. New Partner (Bonnie Prince Billy) - Mark Kozelek
10. Wish You Were Here feat. Thom Yorke (Pink Floyd) - Sparklehorse
11. Footloose (Kenny Loggins) - Doveman
12. Hotel California (Eagles) - Michael Armstrong
