Welcome to episode 99 of Holly Jolly X’masu! In this episode, I talk about the mind-blowing 1971 album, “Rock-In X’mas,” by Love, Live, Life + X.
Merry Christmas! I hope this lived up to your expectations and helped liven up your day. Other than some really obscure cassettes and small or private label albums, there aren’t too many Japanese Christmas albums that are harder to come by than this one. This was a real holy grail for me, and I’m glad I can finally share it with you.
Join me back here on New Year’s Eve for my special 100th episode. For this year’s New Year’s bonus episode, I’ll be covering the 1971 album, “Last Chance’s Explosive Sound: White Christmas – Instrumental Music For Go Go Dancing,” by the obscure Korean rock band, Last Chance. It features one of the most amazing versions of “Jingle Bells” ever recorded. You really don’t want to miss it.
As always, any feedback on this episode would be appreciated. If have any suggestions, or if you’d like to recommend a song or album for a future episode, drop me a line and let me know.
Remember, I’ve added a button to my Ko-fi page. If you’d like to support me one cup of coffee at a time, a donation is only $3. I’ve also opened a Redbubble store. I only have a couple designs up, but keep an eye on it as I’ll be trying to add more. Half of any proceeds or donations received will be donated to support the people of Ukraine, while the rest will be used to purchase new Japanese Christmas music to review for future episodes. You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And if you get a chance, leave me a review on iTunes. Thanks!
