In December of 2005, a handful of Delorises decided to stay in on a Friday night rather than brave the cold Vermont winds. With the semester winding down, spirits were high for most of the people who lived in UVM's Coolidge Hall. To paraphrase Mush Diggles, there was much talk of laying down some sweet tracks that night; a Christmas album.
The result was "A Very Coolidge Christmas," the only collection of music Deloris and the Griswolds would ever put to tape. It couldn't have been done without two handles of whiskey, ten to fifteen people and a whole lot of false confidence. The sessions lasted until 2 am, culminating in "The Snow," a depressed, yet fiery holiday rant from none other than the ghost of Tom Dooley.
Believe it or not, 2013 marks the 8th anniversary of "A Very Coolidge Christmas." The recording was originally distributed to approximately 20 or 30 residents of Coolidge hall who woke up to mysterious CDs that had been slid underneath their doors in the middle of the night. Here it is again in its entirety; digitally remastered with brand new artwork, free to download and ready to take you back to simpler times.
