I'm sure many of you are getting tired of Christmas stuff, so tomorrow will begin my series on Martin Luther King Day albums.
The last title I will look at this year, before packing the box back up and storing it in the back of the closet, is from a band featured in the December 15 Battle Of The Bands contest, Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
I don't think I gave them enough face time, and today I will remedy that.
The brainchild of producer, composer, and lyricist Paul O'Neill, he brought together former members of Savatage to record a series of holiday-themed concept albums.
Today, we're going to take a closer look at The Christmas Attic.
THE GHOSTS OF CHRISTMAS EVE
THE MARCH OF THE KINGS/HARK
THE HERALD ANGEL
JOY OF MAN'S DESIRE/ANGELS
WE HAVE HEARD ON HIGH
MUSIC BOX BLUES
And that brings my journey through The Christmas Closet to a close.
I am not a wise man, but I know when it's time to take the frankincense and hit the road.
I hope some of you were introduced to something new-I would love to know if one of these posts actually prompted anyone to buy something new.
At a minimum, it was an excuse for me to listen to a lot of Christmas records I'd squirreled away, and now back they go until next Thanksgiving weekend!
This is also going to be my last post for the foreseeable future.
Although I plan to make the rounds for your BOTB posts, I do not plan to participate with posts of my own.
Thanks for stopping by, thanks to those of you who commented-hope 2015 brings you all you are hoping for!
