"Christmas In Dub" (Part 1)

Kicking off the yuletide season in style.... Lots of Christmas reggae from the likes of Alton Ellis, Granville Williams Orchestra, Toots & the Maytals, Horace Andy, Likkle Mai, Yellowman, Jah Iriest Artists, The Tamlins, Michelle Gordon, Brent Dowe, Joe Gibbs & the Professionals, and more... Even a nice new reggae cover of "Silent Night" from Noble Vibes. On top of this we mixed in some classic and new Christmas and seasonal sounds (mostly remixed) from Mel Torme, Berlin Symphony Orchestra, Teresa Brewer, Redtenbacher's Funkestra, Skafish, Vince Guaraldi Trio, Rosemary Clooney, Johnny Mercer, Ed Calle/Arturo Sandoval, and Billie Holiday.  But with a Christmas show this week and next, we mixed in a bit of music that had nothing to do with the holidays...including Dubblestandart, Capital Letters, Jah Wobble/Bill Laswell, Richie Phoe, Ill:Esha, and Kid Creole & the Coconuts.
