Introduction. Almost since I began my web musings - first on Randy's Rodeo and then on Hip Christmas - I've been compiling two special pages every year - even as I struggle vainly against the swelling tide of albums I can't seem to stop buying. In honor of Phil Spector, I call one of them "My Christmas Gift To You," and it offers rare MP3 goodies from my collection. The other is called "What's New?" and it describes the best new holiday releases.
