Lo Fi Christmas was recorded at SlowBurn Studio beginning in 2003.  In 2007, two additional songs were added primarily to add length to the record.  Now, “Little Drummer Boy” and “Do You Hear What I Hear?” have become the featured songs in the collection rather than just filler.  The audio was recorded directly to 4 track using the Tascam Porta Two, then was transfered onto digital multi-track for a greater range of mixing possibilities.   Also added was “We Three Kings,” performed by Sun Zoom Spark, December 2003 in Tucson Arizona.   WARNING: A SlowBurn Records 4 track recording.  Recorded material proudly does not comply with industry standards.
