"It's been a while since I did a bootleg kinda thing, but I think this one is more than fitting to the holiday spirit. I did this a few years back and I have been playing it every now and then ever since. There have been many people who have been asking me what this track is when I play it, so the right thing to do would be to share it with everyone."
