Itís getting near midnight on Christmas. ...your spouse has passed out on the couch in the flickering glow of Itís a Wonderful Life, and now itís just you and Jim Beam. Oxís Mark Browning is there for you, with this spare and rough-hewn collection of old hymns, plus a couple of originals. The best of the latter is the roots-rocking "Xmas in the Jailhouse", which kicks things up a notch and makes Christmas Eve in the drunk tank sound infinitely more appealing than spending another holiday tiptoeing around your unbalanced father-in-lawís eggshell ego.
