Snowball Movie Soundtrack - Limited Time Free Offer!

Movie score writer Eric Hester is offering for a limited time the music score to an upcoming Christmas/Santa move called "Snowball".

Christmas movie soundtracks tend to be hard to find long after a movie has come and gone. Alot depends on the success of the movie as well.

So, don't take no chances! Get it now here - http://www.hestermusic.com/Snowball/Snowball.html

dvdguy's research indicates that this is a yet to be released direct to video movie.

Hello all, I am new here, and I am really enjoying all these Christmas Music sites. I just had a few questions though. Are these music downloads free and legal. and how do I download these and burn them onto a cd, or can you do this? I really appreciate any help, and thanks for having all these links.

Rob

Welcome Rob!

While we can’t verify each web site’s integrity, we do trust that they comply with all copyright laws. Some offer music that hasn’t been re-released in CD format and/or where copyrights have expired. Others are broadcast outlets that surly have paid royalties for airplay. Whatever the source, copyright compliance is their responsibility. Should you suspect non compliance, simply do not download.

As stated in one of the earlier posts here, links with proven copyright violations will be removed from this thread upon contact from the copyright owner and/or owner’s representative. Likely though, the external sites will be the ones contacted since they offer the music/programming for download. Copyright issues are a hot agenda so don’t be surprised if some of these links are (or will become) broken at the source. Pleases report broken links here too.

Personally, I recommend that one purchase the music that they like when they hear it from these sources. This insures the best quality sound source and supports the artist. I have discovered many new (at least to me) tunes/programming and added them in this manner.


To download, first make sure that you have enough space in whatever drive you choose. Then, right click on the source download link and choose “save as”. When the box appears, choose your drive (C is most common for internal disc drives) or device such as a MP3 player (usually another letter like E). Type a file name or use the default name as it appears. Then click save.

To burn to a CD, choose whatever CD burner program you use and proceed with the prompts.

Most of what I have downloaded in the last year and a half or so has been to an external hard drive that I bought just for music. The tunes that I really like, I track down, buy and load into my i-Pod. That’s my primary motive for looking for these links!

Hope you meet with success and find more archives, Rob!

Thanks Jon for the info on how to download and burn the music. I have another question if you don't mind me asking. I went to Fa la la la, and Big Balls of Holly and was able to download the music to my documents folder, then I went to my program that burns Cd's and copied the files to that program. Everything went as it was supposed to. I go to play the CD in my CD player, and there is nothing there. Well then I tried to play it in my DVD player, and it played. I know it has something to do with the different kind of files, but I don't know very much about how all that works. Is there any way to go about downloading the files, converting the files, or some other way, that I can listen to this on a regular CD player.?

Thanks for any help.
Rob

Don't mind you asking at all, Rob...

Those sites are great, aren't they?

Check the way your program is saving the files to burn to CD. Perhaps the setting is wrong. Save as an MP3 file or wma file. Your CD player may not play MP3 files; most do, some don't. A DVD player generally will play about any popular audio format.

Also try the CD in another CD player. Sometimes, for whatever reason, a particular CD player simply doesn't like (read) some or all home burned discs!

Follow up to "Snowball"

The downloads are orchestrated pieces that are contained in scenes from the movie.

Nothing about the music particularly brings Christmas to mind. However, that may change depending on the success of the release. One never knows!

"Jingle Bell Rocks!"

"Jingle Bell Rocks!" is Christmas music documentary in the making by Mitchell Kezin. Hard core Christmas music fans like myself are anxiously waiting for the finished product!

Kezine's latest blog entry includes an excerpt from an interview with Bob Dorough. You deep below the surface Christmas music fans will instantly recognize Bob from his composition of and vocals on "Blue Xmas (To Whom It May Concern)". For the surface skimmers, this is a collaboration with Miles Davis from the early sixties.

To my understanding, there will be more interview excerpts forthcoming. Hear them here - http://jinglebellrocks.blogspot.com/
