      Great stuff, lots of good musicians there. Usually I'm skeptical about such albums but this one definitely looks interesting.

          The dog's name is Pete. If he tries to mount you in the middle of the night, say "no" sternly. But don't look him in the eye.

              I'll check it out once it hits the bargain bins in January.

              It's ought to be worth a few laughs. No matter who's involved, I'm not expecting more of it.

                    It'll be the best Christmas music since Rock n' Roll Christmas by Gary Glitter

                      In the very likely case of sounding like a moron I've never heard "'God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" before or at least if I have I never knew it by name.

                        I absolutely, thoroughly, completely HATE "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer," no matter who is doing it.

                        What I would really like to hear is Greg Lake's "I Believe In Father Christmas" with Glenn Hughes on vocals and Tony Iommi on acoustic guitar.
                        He is not here. He has risen!

                              This should be worth the price of admission alone! Although it can only hope to achieve the status of Keith Richard's glorious version from the '70s.
