Letters from a Hill Farm
How's the Cobie album? I couldn't decide whether to buy it or not based on the samples.
Don't know yet. I don't begin listening to Christmas music till December. :<) But really, how could it be bad, if you like her work, which I really do.
I have been wonder about the Rod Stewart album, so I will be looking forward to your thoughts on it. I've always like him and really love his American Songbook albums. I just love Christmas music.
I love his music, since way back when he sang with Jeff Beck. And I love Christmas music, too!
I'm thinking of getting the Lady Antebellum one for my oldest daughter, Megan for Christmas. She loves them!!
I'm sure it is great!
Wow! you are ready for the holidays. One of my favorites is Songs of Angels: Christmas hymns and carols by the Robert Shaw Chamber singers.
Don't you just love Christmas music?!!
A wonderful assortment to delve into, Nan. I usually don't start listening until December either, but, for some reason I've been humming already.
It may be because Thanksgiving was so early this year!
Enjoyed the Leonard Cohen and looking forward to hearing some Christmas music. I may have to look into that Rita Coolidge. I loved her voice. I'm already happily immersed in Christmas!!
Am so pleased you liked the LC song, and I also love Rita C's voice.
Looks like you have a good selection there and will be busy listening to your music come December (in two days!). I have only purchased three this year -- This is Christmas by Katherine Jenkins, a reissue of two Christmas albums that Percy Faith did during the 1950s on two CDs, and Come Darkness, Come Light by Mary Chapin Carpenter. That one is really special. I'm enjoying all three of them, among others. (No, I don't wait until December to listen to Christmas music -- I've been listening to it for a couple of weeks now!) But all three are nice additions to my Christmas music collection. Happy Listening!
Oh, good old Percy Faith. I haven't thought about him in a long time!
After your excellent Weezer recommendation last year, I am paying very close attention to this post. I picked up the Holidays Rule yesterday and am liking it so far. It's funny, I saw the CD at Starbucks and picked it up, but didn't remember why I noticed it. The next day I bought it and realized I'd seen it here.It has O Come, O Come, Emmanuel, which is my husband's favorite advent songs. It is only sung in the 4 weeks before Christmas in church.
I'm really happy you liked Weezer. I'm so fond of that band.I love that hymn too. Haven't played the album yet.
Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
