This is becoming a much loved Christmas tradition. This years album has been compiled by David Little and is probably the best yet.
The theme for this year’s compilation was really the first thing that occurred to me – maybe the time of year puts me in mind of MR James – the title comes from one of his ghost stories, or maybe because when I volunteered, I’d just spent a day in Hebden Bridge, nestling amongst the Pennines. Anyway, the theme seemed to suggest two things close to my heart – landscape / countryside; and eeriness.
I’m very pleased with the results and I hope you are too. Some artists have concentrated on the Jamesian aspects of the title, recorded or interpreted landscapes of importance to them, or combined both. I’ve loved hearing results from artists living down the road to me (almost literally in some cases) to ones from the other side of the world (Australia, Asia and the United States to name a few).
This album was sequenced in submission order – so listen to it in whatever order you see fit.
A huge thanks to all the artists who took part.

Hi there, I actually have a track on here (track 13, Freebrough Hill by DunJIN) which was something I recorded after reading a piece on this very site about Freebrough Hill. Very cool to see the compilation featured here.
