Cyber Monday is upon us today, which means one thing at Second Disc HQ: it's time to launch our annual Holiday Gift Guide, featuring (more than) a few of our favorite things for the music enthusiast in your life. Sure, we might not have included raindrops on roses or whiskers on kittens, but we've filled the guide with around 50 essential selections: sprawling box sets and deluxe vinyl editions, as well as releases on CD from favorite artists that just might make great stocking stuffers. So just click here or visit the handy tab, above, to access this year's picks, reflecting the diversity of music released this year in genres including rock, pop, soul, country, jazz, standards, soundtracks, cast recordings, Christmas music, and more!
You'll notice that the Holiday Gift Guide is in the same easy-to-use format as our Release Calendar, so you can search for a title by a favorite artist, filter by your favorite genre, or even look for a particular title! We've drawn from almost our entire year's worth of coverage, so take a peek...we're sure you'll find something interesting. While we can't include everything (and let's be up front: that includes a tremendous amount of equally worthy releases!), you might just find that perfect present for a loved one or even for yourself, whether a massive box set or a single compact disc!
Remember to watch this space for ongoing updates to the Gift Guide and full-length Holiday Gift Guide Reviews coming soon from artists including Billy Joel, Stevie Nicks, Frank Zappa, The Replacements, and The Darkness - and most importantly, please stay safe during this holiday season. We wish for you and yours the happiest and merriest December yet!
