It's Black Friday 2009 as I post this and what else might you expect, but yet another sales pitch.

    1. First up is NORTH COAST NOEL, an eclectic mix of holiday and Christmas music including folk, rock, reggae, metal, and more.

      Various Cleveland area artists, as well as artists from New York and Pennsylvania joined together to donate their time to the production of "NORTH COAST NOEL", a compilation CD of traditional and popular holiday and Christmas music. The CD, which encompasses a variety of styles and genres, was produced in 2001 order to raise money for The Salvation Army World Trade Center Disaster Relief Fund.

      This CD contains great renditions of Little Drummer Boy performed by Alexis Antes and Robin Stone, Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree performed by Myrtle, the cult classic Enter Snowman by Selloutica (the story of Frosty the Snowman done to the tune of Metallica's Enter Sandman), Blue Christmas by Eroc and Walkin' Cane, and much more. I still think this one of the finest projects I have ever had the pleasure of doing.

      This year, the hard copy CD is being offered at my Rigel Records website for the ridiculously low price of only $2.50 w/free shipping until the end of the year!


    1. Next is Temple 8 - Enter the Temple. If you like progressive rock and progressive metal similar to the likes of Rush, Dream Theater, Tool, and A Perfect Circle, then you'll probably dig Temple 8. Only $5.00 w/free shipping from now until the end of the year.


    1. Finally, I have XOR - Victrola, a small collection of original tunes inspired by a variety of diverse classic rock icons. Only $2.50 w/free shipping from now until the end of the year.
