Links in the song/story descriptions direct to Discogs profiles (where possible & appropriate), as well as other relevent supplementary material.

There's a lot of cool stuff here and we encourage you to explore it all!

Try as we might, we're not always able to track down info about past contributors. That means some entries are stumps Tree stump icon.. If you have any information about these "stumps" we'd love to hear from you. Contact us at elves @ marathon dot christmas.
