It's Beginning to Look A Lot... Zunior Charity Album

That's right folks, the snow is falling here in Hali and the eggnog is getting chilled. Normally that means a downturn in the blogconomy, but it also means lots of Christmas cheer and countless holiday cover songs. While those songs are fun and get us smiling, it's also a terrific chance to start lending a hand. to be honest, I can't think of a better cause than helping the homeless and the hungry, so I am happy as a kid on Christmas morning to let you know about a special charity record featuring a ton of talent.

The good folks at Zunior have put together a Holiday album and 100% of the retail sale price of this album will be donated to the Daily Bread Food Bank. Talk about putting your heart in the right spot! Here's the skinny:
A Peanuts Christmas: The 2009 Zunior Holiday Album is a song-for-song tribute to the famous album by the Vince Guaraldi Trio called A Charlie Brown Christmas. Each song represents a unique interpretation of the classic song featured on the original album.

Zunior got some heavyweights to record tracks for this - Jill Barber, Mike O'Neil, Ruth Minnikin, The Awkward Stage, Wayne Petti, Don Kerr and herohill favs, Construction & Destruction - and honestly, the Peanuts holiday special is my second favorite Holiday special (you can't beat the Muppets Christmas).

Zunior is offering up two free tracks, so obviously I don't want to give away any more, but if you can hear Jill Barber sing The Christmas Song and not get in the giving, holiday spirit, enjoy the huge Joe Dirt meteor sized lump of coal you are destined to get. For everyone else, lets do some good this year and pony up $8.88 for this terrific record and even more important cause.
