Stop in, look around, have a drink and crank some tunes. I'll be posting some songs ripped from records, some out of print and hard to find stuff, some songs by artists you should be listening to, and a few mixes here and there.

Great compilation, I scored one of these when I worked in radio...there was also a single LP that predated it by a year or so, I think it was called Yulesville with a mix of old and new Warner Bros. artists. I can give you more info if you'd like.

Is your Winter Warnerland on coloured vinyl?

You say the second album was posted Thursday which is today, but it does nothing. The cursor does not change to a hand and there is no way it will click to download the second record.

It's like waiting on Christmas Eve...when is Part 2 coming? I've been a good boy. Please Mr. Cool Wax...

Mr. Brainwerks is a pretty cool guy. If he didn't post when he said he would, there's a dang good reason.

Let's all hope everything is good on his end.

Thanks for renewing the download links. Traveled here from Christmas A Go Go via Santa's Working Overtime. Was going to be greedy and get your Cool Wax mixes too, but the links are not working. That's what I get for being greedy. Thanks again for posting.
