Cool Yule Tunes 2011 - A Stax o' Wax Compilation

It's time for my annual Christmas compilation! I've picked some favorite Christmas songs for this year's Cool Yule Tunes 2011 as a little token of my appreciation to all of you for visiting my blog and sharing in my love of this type of music and the nostalgia of glorious vinyl. I haven't been as consistent in posting this year, but I plan to get back into it in 2012!

There's a little bit of everything here and I hope you enjoy the songs I've picked. And, if you don't already have them, click on the "Cool Yule Tunes" label to see the previous four Christmas compilations and download them to have a complete collection!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and I hope you get to spend it with those you love. (I still have three more Christmas albums I plan to share this year before I take my Christmas holiday.)

Gosh, I just love these Christmas 'labours of love' you compile for us, Esther - thank you:)
Much like Bob Cratchit says to his Missus, when she presents the Christmas Pudding; "It gets better every year my dear; don't ask me how, but it DOES"!
I love the choices & thought that went into them:)
3 more Christmas albums possibly?
Witpayrazh your taste, that leaves me beside myself!

Hi, been noticing a few posts that I really like that don't seem to have a download link (as above)

I was wondering if I'm just being silly or are the links dead?

Many thanks for a wonderful blog

Hi, Bobby,

I lost all my backups/links when MU was shut down a couple of months ago. At this time, I do not plan to re-up those records as it would just take too much time. :-(

Please do continue to visit as I have many more records to share!
