If you’re a fan of easy-listening holiday schmaltz as much as I am, you’ll be happy to know that Ernie (Not Bert) plans to share 57 more Christmas albums in 2007 in addition to those already shared in years past.
These albums were mostly recorded in an age of innocence, mainly in the late 50s, when Christmas songs were arranged and performed with emotion and an attention to detail. Back then ‘Christmas albums’ weren’t considered novelty gimmicks – they were popular with just about everybody.
You’ll have to deal with RapidShare for all of the downloads on Ernie’s site, but if your ISP is totally awesome – and SBC Yahoo! DSL totally is – releasing and renewing your IP is a quick and easy way to get around the ‘one file per hour’ download restriction.
