    Haven't seen this one before...

    Hey, folks,

    Stop me if you've heard this one, but it seemed somehow appropriate: A Toolbox Christmas.

    No, I am *not* making this up!



    Here's the blurb. Note this is the publisher's blurb!

    "What could be more Christmassy than goofy novelty record albums of goofy novelty songs you've heard all your life and have a distinctly love-hate relationship with? This wonderfully horrible record combines all the sounds that a well-stocked, Tim Allen-style tool shop can produce, if one is so inclined to use a drill press, bag of nails, saw, ratchet, table saw, and vacuum as musical instruments. Together with traditional wind instruments, mandolin, and a dulcimer, Phillips plays the carpenter's greatest yuletide hits. As the liner notes very correctly state, "Tchaikovsky's beloved 'Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy' may never sound the same to you again once you've experienced Phillips's ensemble of antique hand drill, mandolin, anvil, T-square, level, and pipes." This is a great novelty gift, particularly for that relative you're not necessarily fond of."

    Oh, my goodness! What next?!?

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    I had not seen that, it was great Jay! Here is the YouTube link to Tom Bauques playing Xmas tunes on his crank organ.
