Re-upped Classics From Years Past...


Hey folks!  I just re-upped all the Christmas mixes and I even added a new link to the 2013 mix as well, just check the original post from 2013.   I have received requests to re-up the mixes from 2014 and 2015, but they don't exist.  In 2011 I pulled the plug on new mixes each year when I felt like I had covered all the quality Jamaican Christmas songs and was coming up short finding new ones that would be even considered remotely palatable.  That year I decided that instead of piling together a bunch of awful stuff I would go out on a high note and possibly follow-up in the upcoming years with "best of" compilation.  In 2012 I did the mix "Seven Inches of Christmas Joy" which was a mix of previously featured tunes all ripped from 7" vinyl and in 2013 I did a mix of previously featured tunes mixed in with a couple new songs that I never used before... the lack of response made me realize that I'd be better off just leaving future Christmas Mixes alone.  I haven't put one together since... so if you've just happened across the blog and want to collect 'em all, if you've got 2006-2013, you've got the complete set!  Enjoy!

Sorry I didn't post this before Christmas but it was an absolute nightmare re-upping all these at the same time and I finally had the opportunity to get it done this morning!
