Sorry Eric Church. I really love the new album and was looking forward to new music from you for months. But this is bigger. Much bigger. And I only have to wait until tomorrow. You know when you shop and they have those “suggested items” they think you’ll like but never do? I have to hand it to Amazon. They got me on this one.
If you’re a kid who grew up in the 80s, chances are you had about 30 cable channels to choose from and one thing that seemed to come on all the time during Christmas was Jim Henson’s Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas. I watched it for the first time in about 30 years recently and man did it take me back to childhood. They released a DVD that has outtakes which are hilarious.
But tomorrow, over 40 years since the movie came out, we have a soundtrack! And most importantly, the greatest song ever is on track 12: Riverbottom Nightmare Band!
