Ponder the Mystery

This October will see something that should have been released years ago.  A William Shatner Christmas Album.

Titled Shatner Claus and arriving on October 26th, it is filled with well known and beloved songs for the season.  Featuring a cast of incredible supporting players like Henry Rollins, Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Brad Paisley, Iggy Pop, Todd Rundgren, and many more, it looks to be an eclectic mix of old music in varied styles.
