this week, in the spirit of the holidays, a momentary diversion from theme: for chinese christmas carols! this tape originated in thailand's (not-quite-next-door) neighbour to the south, the city-state of singapore. it's a collection of western christmas carols sung by chinese children, and i imagine that's all i need say by way of recommendation. i'm not sure exactly which variety of chinese the kids are singing.. it's not mandarin, i'd wager a guess that it's hokkien or cantonese? anyone know? since i don't, i gave english translation rather than transcription here. anyhow, this wonderful gem was picked up by alexandra from a dollar bin on the sidewalks of manhattan's chinatown. thanks alexandra!!! please enjoy & have wonderful holidays! fantastic thai music returns soon!

Hi Peter. I don't comment on your posts as often as I should - but I really love a lot of what you post. I was just going through your archives and found this amazing looking tape and the link is dead. Is there a chance for a reupload? If not that's cool.

Thanks for all the great stuff you have posted!

hi carol!
thanks for alerting me to the dead link.. unfortunately, this is the one album on the whole site i don't have backed up! (i assigned it less importance for the off-topicality, i guess?) if i have time (and can find the tape, of course) i'll be sure to post a comment here & let you know!
thanks!
