    I never did have the CD. I went to a local thrift store years ago and picked up what I thought was the LP of it. I am always studious about checking to make sure the right LP is in the jacket. Somehow, I forgot to do it that time and wound up with some album that was so crappy that I don't remember what it was!

    If you go for rockabilly/country Christmas, see if you can download, or otherwise obtain a copy of, Johnny Horton's lone Christmas song, "They Shined up Rudolph's Nose."

    The few tracks you can sample didn't do much for me but I'll reserve judgement for now... I don't have a problem with the originals and really don't see the need for this type of manipulation.

    Easily some of the best Christmas music ever recorded. You will enjoy that very much William!

    If I had to pick two sets of Christmas music to take to a desert island (and if you saw the size of my collection, you'd forgive me TWO selections rather than just one), I'd take that Bing collection I linked-to several posts back and the complete Carpenters Christmas music release.

    One of our local stations normally starts then, but this year they opted for Nov. 14th as well. They're good for "on the go" listening in the car, but it's not something I'd want to listen to 24/7 because it's so dang repetitive.

    I ordered a copy of that Bing collection. I already have a few of his Christmas CDs but in checking titles found at least 1/3 of that set I don't have. I really like Bing, especially his Christmas material, so... It should arrive sometime in the next few days.

    I'd select one of my Cambridge Singers albums for a 2nd desert island choice. But it'd be a very difficult choice as I easily have a dozen or so Christmas albums I really, really, like.

    Singing in my Church's Christmas program really puts a crimp in my Christmas Music listening. I tend to do most of it in the car (my wife doesn't care for the "classical" or rock titles I listen to) but in the month leading up to the program I exclusively listen to that music so I'll know it when performance day arrives (which was last night, this afternoon, and tomorrow afternoon). We have a really good selection of music this year (7 excellent songs) but just those 7 for over a month... Monday morning will bring a full slate of "regulars" for the drive to/from work. I'm ready!

    I'm listening to it as we speak. I thoroughly enjoyed the work they did with Elvis Presley's music, so I decided to give it a try. Not too bad. I don't think it's quite up to par sound quality wise with "newer" artists like Elvis and Roy Orbison. The earlier Bing material sounds a bit out of place with the updated background.

    Karen is hands down my favorite female performer. She had such a beautiful voice.
