So here we are. The final door of this year’s Advent-ure opens. Christmas is upon us once more and another year has flown by all too quickly.
There is also another landmark worth noting today – this is the 500th post here. I’ll be honest, when I started this blog I never thought I would reach 500 posts. Now I can’t imagine life without Feel It.
You will notice that, although this has been my Advent calendar to you, I do not do Christmas songs. Two reasons: I do not possess many, and there are enough available elsewhere this month anyway.
Honey Cone’s superb version of The Dells Stay In My Corner has the feel of a Christmas song though, and the title of their 1972 album from which it comes – Love, Peace & Soul - has the right message too.
It just remains for me to raise a glass and wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year – and here’s to the next 500 posts too!
Note: I apologise for some sibilance on this track. I’m hoping that maybe it was inherent in the recording and not an indication that my stylus (or cartridge?) is on its way out.
PS: There is a Christmas song playing at The Hi-Fi Cabinet Of Curiosities.
