Well the Pickled Egg Seasonal selection is a bit sparse at the moment so how about a seasonal classic from the Nutcracker, probably the best known piece featuring the celesta, although Buddy Holly's "Everyday" did feature it as well.

and for those who like a bit of dance the Bolshoi are very close if not the best in the business.

Time to break the rules by one minute thirty-eight seconds.....but how can you fit a prog-folk-rock fantasy track into six minutes, sure the PE regulars will enjoy it in the background when they have heard it a few times!

its....Winter Wine from the land of grey and pink

For another rule breaker and another short and fanciful track how about 'White Rabbit' by Jefferson Airplane?

I thought of it when I saw 'Winter Wine'

They should prove to be popular selections should "Absinthe Night" be repeated :-D

Just for those unfamiliar with "Absinthe Night" this is what happened last time

Heres a one you'll not hear in the malls a bit of Annie Lennox to add to the PE jukebox's ecletic mix

I have to reiterate that I despise Christmas songs, or did so until fairly recently.

I can now make an exception.

With with a couple more from me should be able to keep the punters going with a weird selection unlikely to have been put together on any other playlist. May well help to clear out the PE's old stock of absinthe over the festive period.

Got to have a few selections from one of our local lads as well. Worth listening to the whole thing from side 1 track 1 to side 2 track 15, like before the days of downloads and shuffles. Quite a shock though from someone who has not bought a vinyl album for some years....£44.14 on amazon.

Well if I have to say so myself, fairly enjoyed the PE Seasonal Jukebox selection as it turned out. Definitely an eclectic mix! Lots of stuff not normally heard put together. Particularly enjoyed the Vaughan Williams selection. Give the playlist a shuffle and enjoy :)
