Record store day/black friday

November 27 is Black Friday and a special Record Store Day. Among the many releases there are a few nice Christmas ones. Like a holiday 7 inch from Juliana Hatfield 'Christmas Cactus' and the first ever 7" single for the Vince Guaraldi classic 'Christmas Time Is Here' from the classic movie A Charlie Brown Christmas. There is a  Dave Brubeck 12 inch, with  an elegant festive holiday etching on the B-side. It contains two tracks 'Sleep Holy Infant' and 'Away In A Manger'

Another 7 inch, on Martian Green vinyl, is this one: 'Hooray For Santa Claus - Milton DeLugg & The Little Eskimos b/w 'Hooray For Santa Claus' - The Fleshtones.  Included is a DVD from 'Santa Claus Conquers The Martians' . (Wonder how this package looks like). 

Finally there's a new release of the soundtrack from the horror movie 'Silent Night, Deadly Night' 'Silent Night, Deadly Night'. This was released in 1984 and was notoriously controversial for its Santa-clad killer. The LP  is pressed on ''Chimney Hellfire''-colored vinyl (red and orange opaque swirl).
