First Post of 2012 – Jethro Tull’s “First Snow On Brooklyn.”

December 1, 2012

Each December for the past five years, I’ve been posting “alternative” Christmas music.

I don’t mean “alternative” as in the “punk rock/alt” music genre. Rather, I mean as an alternative to the same Christmas music you’ve been hearing on the radio for years and years.

While that “same old” Christmas music has its merits in bringing back memories fond or not so warm, there is a ton of really great Christmas music that simply goes unheard to the vast majority.

For the past two years, I have not been on facebook — this year, I am.

Over the next month, I’ll post a variety of new, old, traditional and nontraditional Christmas music. If all goes correctly, it’ll all get posted to my facebook account. If you like it, please share the posts and comment.

The first post for 2012 is a tune from the band Jethro Tull, titled “First Snow On Brooklyn.”  It was first released in September, 2003 as part of the “Jethro Tull Christmas Album,” and then again as a live recording in 2008

(Christmas at St Bride’s 2008).  Christmas at St. Bride’s is a 2-CD release — the first disk is simply a re-release of the Christmas album — disck two is a live version of the same (and features a God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen/Thick As A Brick medley — sweet!)

First Snow On Brooklyn is a beautiful song, Hope you enjoy it.
