When you live in Seattle, standard old Christmas music won’t do. 

Crank up your holiday spirit with local label Sub Pop’s exclusive 7-inch vinyl recording of ’90s Seattle rock bands Green River (featuring future Pearl Jam members Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard) and U-Men, performing their renditions of “Away in a Manger” and “Blue Christmas,” respectively. 

Neither song is available on other recordings, and “Away in a Manger” will not be on upcoming reissues of Green River’s “Dry as a Bone” and “Rehab Doll” albums.

The single is pressed on red and green vinyl in a limited run of just 2,000 copies, with cover art by cartoonist Peter Bagge. Makes a great gift for your favorite music fan — while quantities last.   

$8 at Easy Street Records (West Seattle)
