Album artwork for Holiday Split by Lenny Kaye, Cedar Sparks

Lenny Kaye's place in music history is firmly secured as guitarist and founding member of the Patti Smith Group. His seminal anthology of 60's garage-rock, Nuggets, has long been regarded as defining a genre. In his new book Lighting Strikes, he charts the story of Rock and Roll; It's a story he knows well, as he continues to inspire audiences and readers alike. Following his songwriter muse, he's now committed a brand new holiday tune to wax on his favorite format: the 7" vinyl record. He's teamed up with Cedar Sparks, the duo of Tim Carbone (Railroad Earth) and Lou Rogai (Lewis and Clarke) to record and co-produce a trove of new songs, including Kaye's "Santa's Knee". Their own "Gathering Song" makes for the perfect B-side companion, inspired by seasonal depression, the commodification of Christmas, and the classic 1946 film It's A Wonderful Life.
