CRA: Merry Christmas from the Centertown Recording Alliance

The Centretown Recording Alliance is back at it again. You may remember them from their Canada Day recording challenge or their first challenge earlier this year.

They're back with a Christmas edition where people were welcome to submit a Christmas song. There are some covers, some originals and some downright weird selections.

You can check it out at the Centretown Recording Alliance's page. Feel free to crank it loud at your next holiday party. I'm sure your parents will definitely enjoy Vaglab!
