sorry, no flesh in my ten. The first Christmas tracks to pop off the external HD:

“The First Noel” – Tom Stacy, A nu-view Christmas

The list finished up strong, with my favorite seasonal hymn, and then my favorite Christmas track that I own. The new age toodling of Tom Stacy on English Horn is beautiful background listening to get yourself into a Christmas mood.

That's awesome Big Mak. If you haven't heard it, Luther Wright and the Wrong's note for note re-creation of PF's The Wall in a country twang is a must hear. I don't know why LWATW puts a question mark at the end of their version of In the Flesh.

2) Everyday Weapon - The Ponys/Turn the Lights Out
3) I'm Movin' On - Rosanne Cash/The List

5) Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing (w/ Tammi Terrell)- Marvin Gaye/The Master
6) Gospel Plow - Screaming Trees/Dust
7) Black Crow - Joni Mitchell/Hejira
8) You Drive Me Wild - The Runaways/Best of the Runaways
