My Merry Christmas Announcement

Music Scripture doesn't say it be we know those angels were singing at the manger. And music has been the heart of Christmas ever since.

YES!!! I hit a jackpot at the used CD shop!

After calling and calling for weeks and weeks they finally put out their used Christmas CDs at a used Record/CD shop that I frequent... and I really struck it big today. I hate to act like I'm bragging, but I'm pretty excited that I got to add (and upgrade) a bunch of stuff to my collection.

Here's what I grabbed and how much it cost...

American Idol - The Great Holiday Classics (w/ Kelly Clarkson bonus disc) - 1.00
The New Andy Williams Christmas Album - Live from his Moon River Theater - 1.00
Holy Night - The Mantovani Orchestra - 1.00
The Pat Boone Family Christmas (1979) - 1.00
The Platters - A Christmas Album - 1.99
Glenn Miller Orchestra - In The Christmas Mood (2 CDs) - 1.99
Andy Williams - Personal Christmas Collection - 1.99
Burl Ives Christmas Album - 1.99
Clay Aiken - Merry Christmas With Love - 1.99
The Holiday Tribute To AC/DC (Christmas versions of AC/DC hits... yeah I know ??? ) - 1.99
Jessica Simpson - Rejoyce - 1.99
Donny Osmond - Christmas At Home - 1.99
Elliott Yamin - My Kind of Christmas - 1.99 (glad I returned the one I paid 9.99 for)
'Gold Sound' - Selection of Merry Christmas - 1.99 (a 2 cd compilation on gold discs featuring Crosby, Clooney, Sinatra, Platters, etc...)
Mariah Carey - Merry Christmas - 1.99 (it was weird... at first I had a copy in my hand for 4.99 but then I found this one for 1.99 and it had 2 bonus tracks and the flip side is a DVD with 8 music videos... go figure)
The Temptations Christmas Card - 1.99
Ray Charles - The Spirit Of Christmas - 2.99 (I was so fired up about this one... right now it's going for over $35 on Amazon)
Diana Ross & The Supremes - Merry Christmas - 2.99
The Manhattan Transfer - the Christmas Album - 2.99
Chicago - 25 The Christmas Album - 2.99
Chris Isaak - Christmas - 2.99
John Denver & The Muppets - A Christmas Together - 2.99
The Staple Singers - the 25th Day Of December - 4.99
Paul Revere and the Raiders - A Christmas Past & Present - 5.99
and...
Aretha Franklin - This Christmas - 7.99 (this one is pricey, but I'm getting a little short of breath anticipating hearing the Queen of Soul do 'Ave Maria' - despite the bad reviews I saw on Amazon)

on a side note... I just got an e-mail notification from my library. I requested an inter-library loan for Robert Goulet's A Personal Christmas Collection (a CD that has eluded me for quite some time) and it finally came in from a library in Pittsburgh. At least now I'll have a decent copy of it, until I find my own copy for a reasonable price.

That's weird... they had the CD that you are using for your avatar there.
I new it looked familiar... LOL!

The AC/DC cd is very weird, but a fun transition into Christmas... especially at work where I'm not quite ready to subject everyone to a blatant Christmas onslaught.
