Dream Weapons present: XMAS DELIGHTS VOL. XI C60

My approach to this eleventh ever Xmas Delights is the same as my tenth, meaning: another sentimental nostalgia trip containing nothing but the familiar sounds of unfamiliar oldies from yesteryear. Longing back and romanticising the past is simply spirit the of the season. It’s been that way for generations before us. A century ago they were already singing about celebrating Christmas in «the good old fashioned way». Yes I know I’m repeating myself, but that’s just how I like it. Treat yourself with some warm mulled wine, hot cocoa… or eggnog (if that’s your poison:) and cuddle up by the fireplace, if you can - with this, my coziest hour of seasonal music yet. I wish you all, all the best -Moahaha

    Btw: once when I (for long forgotten reasons) read the Tennessee Wikipedia-article, I remember thinking, what on earth is a "Tennessee Walking Horse Raccoon"? Until I understood that you've got, not one, but TWO state mammals:)

    1. ah, yes that is funny. the state is quite diverse with the west side lowlands bordered by the Mississippi River, in the middle is the Nashville Basin, and where i live on the eastern side is southern Appalachia with the Great Smoky Mountains bordering the state of North Carolina.


    2. So you're the one living in Tennessee bigsun. The Southern Appalachia / Great Smoky Mountains landscapes look stunning.

    3. Yep... am i the only one!?

      Glad t have stumbled upon your mixes back in the daze of Holy Warbles... (about a year ago i found their youtube page... had one for about 8 years or so, but i was unaware).

      Anywho, Merry Christmas to you and yours. :)

    4. Yo're first comment was posted anonymously. Merry Christmas!
