Bumper Christmas compilation giveaway madness!

As a modest thank you to everyone who has taken an interest in my blog this year, I’ve put together two short compilations of songs from the late 60s / early 70s that I’ve enjoyed in recent months. The first features heavier material, the second gentler sounds. The acts represented come from all over the world, but are all on major labels.

Cosmic Christmas Compilation #1

Cosmic Christmas Compilation #2

To add an unseasonally competitive edge to proceedings, I'll send a free copy of my new Endless Trip book to the first ramblers who can identify all the songs on either compilation. Good luck!

PS sorry, no prize for guessing the identity of the Santa pictured above

PPS Cosmic Christmas was the awful working title of Their Satanic Majesties Request
