Kathy Matea came pretty close on the "Good News" CD.

"There's a New Kid in Town" had already been recorded by George Strait but most of the others were not know or little known at that time, such as "Mary Did you Know?". That one may have been recorded by one of the writers, but I believe Kathy had the first release.

It was one of my favorite CD's at the time. And it was largely due to the fact that I had never heard most of the songs before.

But, . . . . . . to accomplish what Buble said he wanted to accomplish, you're going to have to have songs that will be all time Christmas standards, and that's tough to do. By the way, a Christmas standard is every songwriter's dream because it means royalites every year for the rest of your life.

'Christmas Celebration' - Guild Music catalog number GLCD-5185

Okay, I’m excited now!

This release will bring some vintage Christmas music officially to the digital age for the first time! rjd



From Chip, aka Christmas Music Guru, over at The Yule Log.

From the forum thread:

***THIS IS A YULE LOG.COM EXCLUSIVE***

I got word today from my friend Alan Bunting in the U.K. that he has just completed remastering work on a brand new Christmas compilation CD that will be released in Europe by Guild Music in the next couple of weeks, and then here in the United States in the next couple of months.

The CD will be called Christmas Celebration, and the big news about this CD is that it will contain seven of the fourteen songs from Percy Faith's long out-of-print LP, Hallelujah (aka Music Of Christmas, Volume 2).

It will also contain songs from three other long out-of-print LPs: Billy Vaughn's Christmas Carols LP from 1958 (eight songs), George Melachrino's Christmas Joy LP from 1959 (five songs), and Wally Stott's Happy Holiday LP from 1959 (2 songs).

The other songs on the CD are from albums that are currently in print: Percy Faith's Music Of Christmas LP from 1959 (two songs), Mantovani's Christmas Carols LP from 1958 (one song), Mantovani's Christmas Greetings LP from 1963 (one song) and Arthur Fiedler's Pops Christmas Party LP from 1959 (four songs).

Alan has personally done all the transfers, audio restoration and remastering for the music on this CD. The Guild Music catalog number will be #GLCD-5185, and it will available for purchase beginning on or around August 1st directly from Guild Music (Click here), or by early fall from other various online retailers. Alan sent me the artwork that will be used for the new CD, but asked me not to post it until it has been published on the Guild Music website. Therefore, I will file an update message later this month posting the CD cover artwork.
