As a little Christmas project, I’m running a twitter feed called @xmascarolfacts, full of true facts about Christmas songs. Earlier this week I tweeted this:
Corey Hart's version of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" was recorded live at Lansdowne Park in Ottawa in August, 1985.

The track was released on 7″ and has become a bit of a cult Christmas classic. I was surprised at how many people responded to say that they were at the concert!
