    Proof that you can indeed judge an album by its cover.
    This is bad, sounds canned. I could definitely use a better copy. I can probably afford to pony up more than 88 cents next time.

    I suspect @beer&bourbon or @Hazbro666 wibds this thing and given the massive size of his collection, @Yer Ol' Uncle D is possibly a contender as well.

    This is the weirdest Christmas record I own, purchased from that same yard sale.

    I love that Kofi autocorrects to MoFi for you.

    Lol. I wish had as many MoFis as you would think that meant.

    My wife has made it very clear that this is not to be a staple moving forward. There was one track that sounded like Boyz II Men and Shabba Ranks made it together. The also keep yelling Zumba Zumba. Is this a fitness record?

    I haven't played this one yet. Picked it up because it was a bargain. Plus Koko Taylor.

    My Christmas wish is for someone to pick at least one good song from each chosen album to create a Spotify playlist. It’ll be one of the best, most music-savvy Christmas playlists on Spotify. And then we all get to feel like special Indigo children for having a curation hand in creating such a marvel. And also for forum members to come to the Longview SPINS someday :D

    I cleaned a couple Christmas LPs for a friend yesterday and decided to clean a few thrift store purchases as well. It got me to thinking about my favorite artists that can be routinely found at the thrift store. Chet Atkins almost certainly is at the top of the list. I was lucky enough to start collecting when classic rock staples were still at the thrift, but now I find very little on my occasional trips. However, I can almost always pick up something from Chet. I think the instrumental focus and frequently lame cover art bolster the chances. That said, he's one of my favorite guitarists. When I want to hear instrumental guitar, I'm either grabbing for Chet or Fahey.

    In other news, we set up our Christmas tree last night. They usually scrape the 10.5' ceiling, but my daughter wanted a small tree so I obliged. My wife suggested that we change out our album covers for Christmas albums so of course I was on board there, too. I know a few of these haven't been posted yet - sorry about that. (To be clear, I'm not trying to claim them; feel free to scoop me on those.) I'm just excited to share my Christmas cheer! I'll try to post our musical Christmas tree at some point, too - it's all ornaments that are music related and/or play music (such as my daughter's ornament this year - Santa DJ that plays Christmas in Hollis and even has records that you can "scratch".)
