V/A - Christmas Dreamers: Yuletide Country (1960-1972)
Nobody needs more run-of-the mill Christmas schlock... What you DO need is this comp of forgotten country weirdos cracking open the eggnog and singin' some strange songs for Santa.
Numero Group - "Daddies don’t always come home for Christmas. From the snow-covered plains of Wisconsin’s Driftless region to the palm-lined avenues of Los Angeles, the loneliness of the holidays is a universal theme, best expressed by tear-in-the-beer country music hopefuls. Sung and strummed (and plucked) by an unlikely assortment of Nashville aspirants, our Christmas Dreamers spent the ’60s gambling their futures on the AM airwaves of a forgotten America."
