Time for another winter mix.
Just like last year's mix, this playlist is filled with songs that have certain keywords in the title. So every tune will have one of these words...snow, winter, cold, frozen, ice, or freezing, in the title.
Most of the songs are either 2006 releases or new to me in 2006.
Enjoy and keep warm.

Looking back on 2006, I guess it was another pretty good year for music. I like doing lists like this because it makes me resurrect cd's that I haven't listened to recently. Like the fabulous RF - Views of Distant Towns. I had almost forgotten that it came out in 2006.
I've noticed as the years have gone by, that my "best of" lists contain less and less ambient music. Now, a lot of the releases on this list have ambient qualities, but are not exactly ambient music per se. This year Scott Solter, Andrew Chalk & Forest Fang fill my traditional ambient quota in the list.
There was no way I could keep the list to a top ten. So here is my list, in no particular order, of the best of 2006(I reserve the right to add to it whenever I feel like it).
