Jeezus Fuck, It's Christmas!!! (re-upload)

This is a re-upload from the old Ichiban page. The links were dead... 

Super giant thanks to Kristian Hoffman for sharing this on his Facebook Page. It's a picture of a tape Lux made with some amazing Christmas Music. A song or two from the Black Christmas tape, but much more swell tunes to sink your teeth in to.  Even an atheist would love it... Kristian said it was ok to share, so it here it is! Jeezus fuck, indeed!

 (note, this isn't a copy of the "actual" tape, just a compilation of MP3's sourced elsewhere and sequenced like the tape)
