CD Number: Volunteer Records
Did you ever wish you had a truckload of disposable income that you could help other folks that were less fortunate than you were? I have always felt that way. I am a working stiff like everyone else, laboring day and night just to keep my head above water and support my family. There is one thing I can do to support a good cause, it is through a music review to help promote a CD! Like this two CD set titled Ho Ho Ho Spice.
Volunteer Records, in conjunction with the Saint Barnabas Hospice and Palliative Care Center & Van Dyke Hospice, decided to join forces to create this assorted musical project to generate funds for the organization. 'Tis the season and what better way to give than treating a music lover you know to this seasonal indulgence? This really is a magnificent holiday album. You will recognize some names readily and some you will not, but none of that matters. The cause is the most important thing.
I felt blessed that I was invited to help with this project, and the fact that I am one of the 5,000 people on the planet to have a copy of this ambitious and spirit filled musical adventure is a true gift. This is certainly the most dissimilar and wide-ranging collection of holiday tracks I have ever heard, and what a collection it is! Forty-nine tracks in all. I have to admit it; I dread the onslaught of holiday releases every year, so far it has not been overwhelming this season. This release put me in a good spirits. Instead of putting money in the pockets of a retailer or one specific artist, I am doing something worthwhile for the greater good of humanity. Someone else in need will appreciate all the work the people involved with this project contributed to make this music a reality. This is what the season of giving is about my friends. I am writing this to encourage every one of you to dig a little deeper in your pockets this year to support this worthwhile cause.
This collection has it all, traditional music, not so traditional, traditional with an alternative rockin' twist, there is something for everyone in this musical stocking, just take your pick and get in the mood, what you give you shall receive.
