I’ll Stay ‘Til After Christmas

I like the idea of Christmas, though I’m not sure my fantasies have ever been congruent with the proceedings of the real event. Usually, the only warm and fuzzy I get, comes after I leave my parents. This Christmas album benefits Amnesty International and serves as a soundtrack to the entire such spectrum of emotions and feelings you might face during the most wonderful time of the year. I’ll Stay ‘Til After Christmas compiler Daniel Gill chose artists for this album who would paint an audio portrait not of present day Christmas celebrations, but rather hazy memories of childhood Christmas experiences and the often bittersweet emotions that accompany them. The idea for the album came from a recent tradition that Gill and his wife Reda Rountree have had for the past several years where they would make a compilation CD of Christmas music.
