Roches Christmas Album is way up there with me on my list, too. I also appreciate the Manhattan Transfer Christmas album.Mine would still be Carpenters C. P., The Roches We Three Kings, and Boney M. Christmas album, which has several titles and covers, with most of the same songs. The Real Gone collections, Complete Andre Kostelanetz, Ray Coniff Singers, Percy Faith, and Richard Carpenter co- produced Complete Perry Como Christmas, have gone out of print. They’re pretty well done. Production by Jim Pierson, who did both Carpenters Christmas and Close To You dvds. Worth having if you like the big orchestral sounds of Christmas music and choirs.
What...do you live next to Tim Allen?I started playing my Christmas Music early, I almost never play it before Thanksgiving. I blame my neighbors lol, they put up their Winter Wonderland it’s all over the yard, on the rooftop of their house, candy canes, snowmen, huge sled w/ rudolph and all the reindeer, you name it...it’s there. lol They even have music syncing to the lights..
So you're the one - we heard there was one out there somewhere... 🙂I've never been a Carpenters fan. I picked up Christmas Collection at a resale shop about 4 years ago and it's been in the rack until yesterday. I played CD two and found it to be outstanding. I didn't know what I was missing.
Yes, great album - contains one of the best uptempo versions ever of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" - second only to Carpenters'...
That’s the 1984 CPSE version not the 1978 version (they even list “Special Edition” in brackets and 21 tracks on the entry. So we’re talking about a 38 year old album being in the Top 20 (#13 as I write)! Of course Bing Crosby’s White Christmas from 1945 is at #7, which is impressive for a 73 year old album.CP @ #20 on iTunes!!!!! Great price too.
