Tim McMahon's Rockin' Christmas V

A good friend of mine, Tim McMahon, whom I met when I lived in Gainesville, FL, at UF, makes a Christmas music record every year. It's a compilation with music from different influences. Without fail he has come through with new tunes not used in previous records (to my knowledge). These are easy to listen with friends & family, or at a Christmas party and easlily allows you to engage in the mayhem that the holidays bring on. Here is the record. This is his fifth installment, that's five years of unique holiday records.

This year he also added a surprise disc which I haven't even checked out yet. This is the second time he implements this supplement. It's full of some really old songs best enjoyed on a dark and silent night.

Thanks! It's always nice to have something to break up my usual Christmas playlist of A Charlie Brown Christmas and Destiny's Child. Do you happen to have his past mixes? Oh, and yeah, HEY EDDY!
