Album Notes
A great compilation of alternative, power-pop, Christmas tunes by such notable genre artists as; Shoes, Material Issue, Matthew Sweet, Bill Lloyd, The Spongetones, The Cavedogs, Spooner (Butch Vig and Doug Erickson from Garbage) Don Dixon & Marti Jones and many others! Critically acclaimed at the time of it's original release, this remains a holiday classic with a number of it's original songs showing up on satellite and digital cable programs and even other compilations. These aren't only great Christmas songs, they're great songs, PERIOD! This disc has a wonderful combination of moods ranging from poignant, funny and cheerful to sad and thoughtful. So put the Christmas log on the fire, grab a mug of eggnog and put this disc on the stereo. It's a Christmas cornicopia! There are only a limited number available so, do yourself a holiday favor and pick up this CD to stuff your own stocking...and hers! Ho-Ho-Ho!

By Mitch Mirthman (on the path in search of YULEtide Treasure)

I was blown away, this here com"YULE"ation is a treasure trove worth any desperate discovery deep digg'n to find a YULEdeer donor.This past millennium-merry-mirth-merchandized-mix comes close to the ideal model to which YULE clerics complie toward,all that was wrong is righted by the insertion of a few instr-tinsels of your choosing for the lesser likes. ~~~Merrily Mix ~ 1 $ , 2 $ , 3 $, 4 #1\2 , 5 #1\2 , 6 # , 7 % , 8 $ , 9 $, 10 $ , 12 % , 13 # , 14 #1\2 , 15 # , and 16 #1\2 ~~~Post Script:Thanks to those prior for thier tune in, the high praise and pleasing acknowledgements are right on target. This is a National Treasure of Altenative Pop Christmas Songs, if you have a copy please share it's play often, let's all wish we get a commercial reissue or some resonate response covers someday.The Cavedog's and Herb Eimerman's tracks shine most brightly.***buyit, saveit, shareit, giveit, cherisit, donatit to the local library*** YULEridgemality Factor = 15 1\2

Best Christmas Songs you Never Hear
This is simply the best complilation of Christmas Songs I have ever heard. Unlike many of the commercial collections of so-called classics, or the usual derivative, sentimental stuff, this colleciton is full of sincere, very special moments, all written by talented, ogiginal song writers. All the feelings are real, unlike the tacky and treacly stuff on the radio and TV. It has many moods, all of them moving. I had a copy many years ago, which was lost in a move, and am so glad to get a new copy. This will be always be the one I play when I decorate the tree every year.


Pretty Rockin Tunes for xmas
Pretty good CD, Some very catchy tunes to put you in a good mood, and a couple to bring back some memories, but a good mix of music.

I love it!! Why did it take me 17 years to buy this cd??? It's January 5th and it is still in my cd shuffle

Robert Emmett McAuliffe

Absolutely the best
What a unique set of songs. Incredible. Very varied too, not just Power Pop. Only one I don't like is Matthew Sweet's. A bunch of mostly unknown bands must have gotten really inspired when they got the call from Jeff Murphy to do this CD.

Among The Best...
I have recently been obsesssed with compiling my 500 favorite Christmas songs and putting them in one file so I don't have to sift through my collection each year. I spent about three weeks combing the Internet for Christmas music and came across this CD. I don't know how I missed it at the time, but I did. This CD is on the rare side if not out of print so when I stumbled across CD Baby and saw that they had this at a reasonable price I couldn't buy it fast enough. Trust me; I have over 3500 CDs and about 30 Christmas CDs. If you like alternative rock this is a must for your Christmas collection. I get so sick of hearing the same versions of the same songs every year and this CD is a breath of fresh air. Quality renditions, Yule tidings, and pound for pound one of the best Christmas CDs you will come across in its genre. It's easily in my top ten Christmas CDs and I've been buying them for decades. Pick it up now because they won't last. Just check the competition if my word isn't good enough. This is a steal at $14. Great site, great customer service, and I for one am thoroughly satisfied with my whole experience with them.

This is the best Xmas cd ever


I LOVE this!
I got this CD on the recommendation of my good friend, John Borack, and he was dead-on in his assessment of this, his fave collection of Christmas tunes. It's wonderful; I'd been looking for it for quite some time, and I'm enjoying it immensely! It came safely swaddled in its own little bubble-wrap blankie. CD Baby is the BEST to deal with, and is just too cute for words.


Yule Tunes
Great CD any time of the year, excellent mix of music and a must in the holiday collection
