Main Street Music

There a lot of modern rockers who consider this to be THE great Christmas album of the last 25 years or so, and if your taste runs to the Southern-based "jangle pop" practiced by such folks as Big Star, R.E.M. and the dB's, you're probably one of them. Originally released as a 7-song LP in 1986, and as a 17-song CD in 1993, this Chris Stamey-conceived holiday classic appears here on our Collectors' Choice Music label with six new tracks, including a song by Peter Holsapple, 'Home for the Holidays', performed by the dB's; 'Christmas Time Is Here'-Thad Cockrell & Roman Candle; 'Lonely Christmas'-Marshall Crenshaw; two tunes by R.E.M. producer Don Dixon, 'I Saw Three Ships' and' 'Christmas Is Saturday', and an unreleased track by Ryan Adams & Whiskeytown, 'Houses on the Hill'! And the album's older tracks are pretty darn cool, too!
