    I really like this! In what's become a new Alpert tradition, he's revisiting some tracks he cut with the TJB on the previous album, he's paying tribute to the Carpenters by including their most famous Christmas song, and to top it off, he's ending the record with the same song he ended the previous Christmas album with. And a cool cover photo to boot. I'm anxious to hear it.

    Yes, the track list looks excellent - nice variety of tunes....looking forward to this album.
     
  5. I love the nostalgic cover art and the nod to the 1968 Christmas Album. I wonder if Herb will do any Christmas concerts?

  6. The song "The Christmas Wish" was put out on Spotify today. I guess it is an original, I have never heard it anyway. It sounds lovely. Great expectations for the album!

    Tempting as it is, I've decided not to listen to any of the pre-release tracks on this one.
