All of the music recordings on this site are recordings of independent origin (ROIOs) Music that has not been officially released. If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

Elvis Alternate Christmas

Christmas time is full of people trying to capitalize on the birth of Jesus. And some of it gets pretty cheesy. Take a look at the cover for this one. Need I say more. But some of the alternate takes of Elvis are kind of fun to hear. Jesus has always sold and packaged and commercialized and so was Elvis so the two together is a perfect fit I guess.

  1. Holy Moly AZ. This is some of my favorite Christmas music of all time. Seems like you've been reading my mail, if not my mind. Thanks so much for sharing this great Christmas blues. All the best to you, and very happiest of holidays.


  2. Hi AZ. One of the joys of growing older is the rediscovery of things forgotten. Five years is a very long time in the world of music appreciation. It's nice to be able to appreciate these all over again. Thanks, my friend,


  3. One more (last??) comment: the only important Elvis Christmas tune missing is "Here Comes Santa Claus" with it's definitive line: "Santa knows we're all God's Children, and that makes everything right." Kinda puts a bow on the whole proceeding, don't it?
