“Fire from Gold” is a tender ballad with lyrics almost suggestive of Native American folklore. Delicate finger-picking and percussion intertwine while the honey smooth vocals evoke comfort and positivity. Lavender sings, “No rush coyote/no rhyme coyote/no fear coyote/We are only blessed/There’s no devil in this hole.” Extremely calming and reassuring, it’s the kind of track that will put a smile on your face and fill your heart with hope.

So, what's a girl to do? Well, Rhino retooled many of these songs (along with others more commonplace, though no less great) on another LP series called Cool Yule ( Vol. 1 , 1985, and Vol. 2 , 1988). These, also, are out-of-print, but Rhino subsequently issued a Best Of Cool Yule CD in 1989 compiling most (but not all) of those tracks. Confused? Several more of the tracks showed up the same year on Rhino's fine (though less distinctive) Christmas Classics . Together, the two CDs (both enshrined in my Top 20 Albums list) virtually form an instant Christmas collection, but that still leaves many of the Rockin' Christmas tracks stranded in vinyl Siberia; as many Christmas CD's as I own, a full dozen of these songs appear in my collection only on the original LPs. Great stuff! Happy hunting! Rhino, are you listening? [ top of page ]
