    This is most certainly sure to be another Holiday classic in the making this year

    I really like this Christmas album. Herb will be performing "Santa Baby" on the Hallmark Channel Christmas Concert series on Nov 3rd and the show will be re-broadcast throughout the holiday season. This will be recorded live.

    I am going to wait until Monday, October 16 to pick up the Christmas CD because I am going to see Olivia Newton - John, Beth Nielsen Chapman & Canadian singer Amy Sky "Liv On" tour in Midland, Michigan on Friday, October 13. Then on Saturday, October 14, I am going to Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario to see The Stampeders in concert. Matt Clark Sanford, MI

    By the way, Herb Alpert is the first in line to start the brand new 2017 Christmas CD's on Friday, September 29!! Also coming, Alabama third Christmas CD "American Christmas", Reba McEntire 3rd or 4th Christmas CD, the late Elvis Presley (with the Royal Philamonic Orchestra), Lindsey Stirling "Warmer In The Winter" & singer Sia first Christmas album & that is all that I can think of.

    I love the cover...a subtle wink to Herb's first Christmas album...almost like he's saying it feels good to get the beard and hat off and loosen the belt after 49 years.

    I'll grab it in December. Hopefully the vinyl won't sell out by then!

    I will buy it first week of October around payday but I will wait to play it until late November after Thanksgiving when I normally start playing holiday music.

    We will live vicariously through your purchase. :D But, I can stream it on Tidal until I get my copy of it later on. I sometimes get new releases (especially vinyl) on or near release day, but I'll be away from home for a few weeks.

    I've got mine on order, but I can't decide whether to play it on arrival or wait until "the Christmas season" kicks in. Currently most of my Herb listening has been a 19-song best-of compilation playlist composed of songs ranging from his most recent studio albums, with a couple of tracks from Re-Whipped thrown in for good measure. It's a kickass set.

    Mine is on order as well, but I don't start playing Christmas music until Thanksgiving. So it will have to wait on the shelf a couple of months.

    This is a fantastic album, at the top, one of Herb's very best. Anyone who waits to get it or waits to play it, is definitely missing out!
    Order now, get it and play it as soon as you can. THE CHRISTMAS GIFT from Herb arrives early this year - long before the first snow. ENJOY!

    I plan to get it as soon as my finances allow it and I will take your word for it
     
  17. You'll probably have guessed that Radio Six International will have some tracks on release day in 'The Lively Lounge' although thereafter probably a gap before I start playing it on air for obvious reasons. It's a really fantastic record (good ol' vinyl!) and without a doubt one of Herb's very best!
