The Holiday Music Fest 2018
This is one of my favorite holiday recordings. It's a very well-known song, "Winter Wonderland," but a rare version. It's from Steve Goodman, and not only is a joy, but gives a great idea why he was so incredibly wonderful in concert.
This comes during one of his concerts -- I think it may have been when he was on Austin City Limits, though for understandable (but wrong-headed) reasons didn't make it to air. Someone yelled out a song request, which for whatever odd reason was "Winter Wonderland." Not a song that Steve Goodman was known for. In fact, he didn't know exactly how it went -- yet he dove in and tried. And the result is utterly joyous and as good a sense of how great he was live on stage as you will find, most especially from just audio alone.
