Modern Kiddo Presents :: Alix’s Retro Holiday Mix, vol. 2

By now your home should have been filled with the sweet sounds of a vintage Christmas! Thanks for all the kind tweets and comments—I’m so glad you guys liked my Retro Holiday Mix, vol 1. This week’s mix is a tad more lively (as opposed to smooth and groovy), and chock full o’ fabulousness that I know you’ll love.

For those that missed last week’s post, here’s the dealio! Over the past years I have wanted to digitize my vinyl as a way to preserve it—and so I could share it with others. I’ve transformed a fair amount of my albums to MP3 and thanks to the help of my super cool friend Spencer (from the awesome SAP Music blog who has one of the best record collections around) I’ve managed to build a fun menagerie of retro MP3s. I love cranking my old LPs around Christmas and wanted to share some of my favorite vintage holiday tunes with you! Some highlights of this mix include faves from my childhood albums: Sammy Davis Jr., The McGuire Sisters, The Pepperment Kandy Kids and the Jackson 5 (my top fave retro holiday album).

So without further ado, I’m pleased to present:

{PLEASE NOTE: Mixes are locked until December! }

    […] That’s it for now….the count down is officially ON! We’re heading to Michigan in a week to visit my parents at their lake house. From what I hear there is a crazy blizzard happening up there so I guess we’ll be having a white Christmas after all. I can’t wait! Now to just try and lick this dang cold I’ve had for the past 2 1/2 weeks. Argh! But I’m so excited to get away. I realized that I haven’t had a week off since LAST CHRISTMAS. I think it’s high time. We plan on sledding, seeing boat loads of movies and just straight up relaxing. How about you guys? Are you stickin’ around or visiting relatives? I can’t wait to trade holiday stories with you! Ooh, and don’t forget to download my special retro holiday music mixes. Get ‘em here. […]
