A Ukrainian Christmas with Metro

I've been meaning to put this album up ever since I started this blog. Metro's Eleven Days From Christmas is a Canadian Christmas album done by a Ukrainian guy who plays the Kazoo. All of these Christmas songs are parodies done with a Ukrainian flavor, and they're pretty funny!

This album has been sadly out-of-print either since it's original release in 1975, or since Singwell Records went belly up. It's a favorite of mine to play during the holiday season, and now it can be yours too!

As an after-thought, I figured it would be a good idea to make a Christmas jukebox for this time of year containing some of the bizarre Christmas songs I own, but I really don't have the time for it before Christmas. Perhaps I'll make this a goal for next year.

It's not out of print at all - in fact, you can get it from itunes or amazon...

You are quite right! However, the last time I looked into it, it was definately out of print as the only copies I could find were on Ebay and used record stores. I guess someone decided to resurrect it in the last year or so.

Historically, the most active and solemnly celebrating of Christmas are in Western Ukraine, where the native Ukrainian traditions have something similar with Romanian, Polish and Hungarian. Here the festivities begin in the evening of January 6 and lasts for a month. We have organized our travel with tour operator.
