This ‘alternative’ CD of Christmas songs includes tracks by Cyril Tawney, Loudon Wainwright III, Eric Bogle, The Macalmans, Tom Lehrer and many others. Robin Laing performs a song called 'The Man that Slits the Turkey's Throats at Christmas' by John Rudkin from Leicester - that probably gives you some idea of what to expect. The CD is an alternative to all the piped Christmas music that assails our ears at this time of year. The songs make you smile, at times they make you think and it really is an enjoyable listen - it has been on our CD player in the office many times.
