Mr. Suave's 2007 Swingin' Christmas

Merry Christmas modsters. Christmas is just two days away, the North Pole is all in a tizzy, Santa's gettin' his sleigh road ready, and that means it's time to dust off an old favorite. Actually, 24 old favorites. This year's mix is just a little different from last year's. Mostly the same, but you've got to mix it up a little.

Every year I play my mix at parties, post it online, and generally share the cheer. And every year people beg me to burn them a copy. Since hard copies are so 20th century, here's a digital download of Mr. Suave's Christmas disk in all it's swingin, glory. And, it's pure tunage, completely without Mr. Suave commentary!
