Adam Schabow presents his album "There Isn't A War On Christmas" free for download

Two years ago I recorded a Christmas album titled There Isn’t a War on Christmas. All the songs were both written and recorded within a month or so in my old basement and at my sister-in-law’s music therapy clinic. (Note: Her studio is particularly helpful in recording a Christmas album since she owns sleigh bells, xylophones, glockenspiels, gongs and other neat Christmas-y percussion style instruments.)
The last two years I’ve mailed out free Christmas CDs to anyone requesting one. It got a bit tedious and some fell through the cracks. So this year I’ve decided that due to my busy schedule and lack of organization I will be putting the album on-line free for anyone to download.
These again are all original Christmas tunes and are owned and copywritten by Adam Schabow and Laundry Basket Music - 2007. Themes on the album include the myth about the war on Christmas, Santa giving zombies to kids that are on the naughty list, doing it under the Christmas Tree, sledding, global warming, wanting your baby back for the holidays, New Year's resolutions, and other silly shit.
Thanks to Ropin' Rodeo Nate for playing keys on tracks 1 and 5.
Thanks to Seven for helping mix the album in such short notice.
