dB's Xmas

(conqueroo ) Indie rock can anticipate another evolution of The dB�s� Christmas album with the arrival of The dB�s & Friends� Christmas Time Again, which will hit the streets on November 21. Or allow us to clarify: Originally released as a seven-song LP on Coyote Records in 1986 and as a 17-song CD in 1993, this Chris Stamey-conceived holiday classic � now in its third edition � will be reborn on Collectors� Choice Music with six new tracks.

Since its last incarnation, the collection has added Peter Holsapple�s �Home for the Holidays,� performed by The dB�s (with special guest Caitlin Cary); �Christmas Time Is Here� by Thad Cockrell and Roman Candle; �Lonely Christmas� by Marshall Crenshaw; two tracks by R.E.M. producer Don Dixon (�I Saw Three Ships� and �Christmas Is Saturday�); and an unreleased track by Ryan Adams & Whiskeytown titled �Houses on the Hill.�

The new additions augment an already formidable collection featuring Big Star (�Jesus Christ�), Alex Chilton (�The Christmas Song�), The dB�s (�Christmas Time,� �Holiday Spirit� and �Feliz Navidad�); Ted Lyons (�The Only Law That Santa Claus Understood,� �Santa�s Moonlit Sleighride�), Chris Stamey (�It�s a Wonderful Life�), Chris Stamey & Cathy Harrington (�You�re What I Want for Christmas�), Chris Stamey & Mary Mac (�Snow Is Falling�), Cathy Harrington (�Sha La La�), Wes Lachot (�Christmas Is the Only Time�), Peter Holsapple (�O Holy Night�), Brent Lambert (�Silent Nocturne�) and Keegan DeWitt & the Sparrows (�Christmas Light�).
