The Three Suns - A Ding Dong Dandy Christmas! (1959)



Just like the guy from Hipwax puts it: Christmas comes but once a career, in most cases, usually as a resuscitation attempt. When all else fails, when diehard fans have every song in every format, when DJs refuse to supersaturate the airwaves, along comes the Christmas album. Some are heroic, progressive efforts and mind-bending high points like this one, while others are sentimental snoozes like Christmas celebrations themselves. Since most Christmas records cannot be given away, looking through piles of dirt for a gem is a form of self-abuse. But the great ones are worth it, once a year anyway, and this one is such an album. Here they are again, the Three Suns with one of the craziest Christmas records ever heard. Happy Holidays!

New upload-limit by RapidShare is max. 100 MB per file, so you don't have to split archives anymore.

The upload-limit of the company I work for is 25 MB, so I´ll have to split archives in the future. Sorry...

Great Christmas album, P.
Makes me realize how pitiful the average store's selection of Christmas CD's is each time this year and how valuable sites such as yours are. Thanks for making the Three Suns available to those of us who can't buy their music in the stores - meaning ALL of us!
