Will we ever hear the Christmas Album that's been touted for over a decade now? Don't get me wrong, I already pre-ordered this; however, as a consumer, I'd rather have some "new" material from Richard rather than another instrumental package of the hits. But I will hold off on my judgement until I receive it and play it. It's going to be an interesting, if not exciting, Fall.

The Christmas album has been in production now for almost 20 years (I first heard about it in 2002).

Yep, pre-ordered my LP! 🥳 I'll have to wait a few extra weeks for it (early December), but it'll be totally worth it, the preview sounds very soothing 😻
