Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays from all of us here at 3 Minute Record! 2014 has been a really great year for us with the podcast, and we still have at least one more to get up before the year is over. There are also two more on top of that one that we are working on and will have up soon in the new year.

Until then, we thought we might give you a little Christmas music you can enjoy with your family and friends. (Okay, you are probably sick of Christmas music by now, but there are only a couple of days left of it, so here is some more!)

Some years ago, Bart recorded some Christmas tunes with Dana Michael Anderson and John Masinelli (then of The Flatwheel Band) and Shawn Raila and Andy Dorris (of the One Drops). The idea behind the recording was that everyone was feeling a little broke and this would be a way to be able to give gifts to family and friends. They got together at Bart's house, learned these songs, and knocked out these recordings in one day.

And so, the Flatwheel & The Gum Drops Christmas EP, All You're Getting For Christmas was born! The boys tracked four traditional Christmas tunes, "Silent Night," "Jingle Bells," "O Holy Night," and "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer," and a cover of the Robert Earl Keen favorite, "Merry Christmas From The Family." CD's were burned, "artwork" was made, the final product was handed out to family and friends, and hopefully much rejoicing was had by all!

It has been a while since then, and we thought we would post all the tunes here for easy download for all the friends that might have never received a physical copy or we didn't know then. We hope you enjoy and have a wonderful holiday season. Be sure to give all of your loved ones a big ol' hug this holiday just because hugs are pretty awesome.

Seasons greetings and thanks for being a part of what we do!
