The follow-up/companion to 'Cynical at Christmas'. As promised, this is a bit less cynical, but still 'alternative' and avoiding most cliches. Chuck Berry is allowed, because, alongside with Half Man Half Biscuit, he has written and performed the OTHER TWO 'Greatest Christmas Songs Ever' (namely Merry Christmas Baby and Run Rudolph Run).
This is, musically at least, a little more 'feel good' than the 'Cynical' mix, and aiming for a general positivity without resorting to cheap sentiment.
Circular mix made for the 'Space' theme for Belladrum festival 2011. This mix was made to be played on repeat on a CD, rather than just from beginning to end.
It was used in the Around group's stall to provide both atmosphere and entertainment. (The Around group are an eclectic fusion of artists, of which I am a part. There are around 20 or so people in the group, ranging from painters and sculptors to wood carvers and musicians. See http://www.around.org.uk/ for more information.)
