Dan Kessel and David Kessel need no introduction ...

This is their stab at a Rock & Roll Christmas classic and it shows once again that they're about the most imaginative producers who ever attacked a mixing board.

I used to enjoy trying to stump Greg with music trivia. One time I asked him what was the B side to Hailey Mills single “Let's get together.”  Without blinking he replied: “Cobbler cobbler mend my shoe.” I was truly fond of Greg. He will be missed.
