ROB SEZ: Took me a while to get into the spirit of the season, but it finally hit me the other day. This year especially, I want to hear holiday tunes sung by someone with a conscience, so I thought of Bruce Cockburn. (Many thanks to the original tapers & sharers.) I really dig his Christmas album. I think it's a classic.

It's not too late; buy now!
