Blake Xolton & the Martians - "Merry Christmas"

"BLAKE XOLTON IS, TO TELL IT STRAIGHT, AN UNDISPUTED UNDER-GROUND LEGEND IN HIS NATIVE LOTUS LAND OF L.A. ON THIS, THE WEST COAST PUNDITS AND SOOTHSAYERS ALL AGREE. ONCE A JEALOUSLY GUARDED MANTRA AMONG THE INTELLIGENTSIA AND ART CROWD, XOLTON'S NAME NOW SHRIEKS FROM THE FEVERED LIPS OF THE SWINGING CREEPERS WHO STORM THE BOULEVARDS AND HAUNT THE BACK ALLEYS OF HOLLYWOOD WHEN THE MOON IS FULL AND THE SPIRITS ARE HIGH." So says his website (in caps). I need not say more except that the wall of sound of "Merry Christmas" appeared on the Bomp! Records "Experiment With Destiny" compilation and Charlotte Caffey of the Go-Go's provided background vocals. Blake has worked with a who's who of the music business including none other than the Wall Of Sound master Phil Spector himself, Rodney Bingenheimer, The Ramones, Blondie, Nikki & the Corvettes, Plimsouls and many, many others.

Ouch, I missed downloading the mp3 of this when it was available a couple of weeks ago and have been looking for this song for quite some time. Is there any way I can get you to re-post it or to email it to me? Happy to trade any Xmas song you're looking for in return (I have way too many. Many thanks in advance and Happy New Year!
