Timbuk 3 ‎– All I Want For Christmas (US Promo 12″)

Happy Christmas to all followers, contributors and fans of the blog !!!!

It’s been a long old year and this big place seems to get more popular by the month. Still stuck in the 80’s ( and will be up to the New Year) this hobby continues to roll along. As Mike and myself try to bring you the rarer vinyl treats, hopefully tickling the nostalgia bone or prompting cries of “I’ve not heard this version before and I thought I was a fan!”

Mike sent this over as the obscure but excellent festive tune to pop up. The husband and wife duo of Pat and Barbara K. McDonald must be one of the very few successful married musical couples From 1987 and as relevant today as ever. Timbuk 3 nail the anti consumerism vibe in their country rock style (driven by the trademark drum machine)

B-side seems like a studio outtake with “Blue Christmas” getting covered. “I Love You” , their own composition, hypnotises you with Blue Aeroplanes style of guitar. I’m going to dedicate this post to my mate James who always lends his critical ear to my posts, most of them he doesn’t like! Here’s one for you mate!
