'Tis the Season for Los Straitjackets
Yep Roc, YEP 2041

Don't you just love the holiday season? Especially when you can listen to some real gone X-mas music. Well, if you're getting tired of hearing the same old versions again every year, here's news for you! The utterly fantastic and totally unbelievable Los Straitjackets have dedicated a full length album to the yuletide. Playing every one's favourite holiday tunes in their own rocking style. All instrumental of course, with guitar wizard Eddie Angel on lead, you can listen to old time classics like "Here Comes Santa Claus", "Jingle Bell Rock", "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" and many others.

An album not just for the rockers and surfers, but for those that enjoy great guitar instrumentals. Not hard knocking and guitar slaying (we know Eddie can get pretty wild now then), but cool clear music for everyone to enjoy, obviously recorded with a broader audience in mind. You're gonna love the way Los Straitjackets play "Little Drummer Boy" !!
