A new import CD release we mentioned last week is "O come, all ye faithful - the Elvis - Special Christmas package CD" featuring 22 alternate Christmas songs, a 2000 Pocket Calendar, a screensaver, and postcards. Nice to see that even the import-circuit goes along with the seasons. Here's the complete tracklisting:
