It is with a heavy heart that I unfortunately announce that the recently released Felix Slatkin Christmas CD will be the sole Christmas CD release from Real Gone Music for this year 2020.


I waited until now to make the announcement to see if we got any last minute clearances from either Sony or Universal. But at this point, as Gordon says, it would take a Christmas miracle to have any more releases come out.


In short: the pandemic killed everything.


As Gordon also said to me the other day, let's hope next year is a better year in many respects, this being one of them.


God bless and Godspeed.

Chip - Do you know of any other labels that will be re-releasing older Christmas albums on CD? I see that a Buck Owens set is coming out soon.

I have no words.  Very sad news indeed.

No Rich, all I know of so far is the Buck Owens.

Very sad and disappointed, but understandable. I was hoping for a release of the Frank Chacksfield Christmas album, among others. Maybe they will make it up to us next year. 


Be safe and well!

I see there's a Peggy Lee compilation CD that came out this past Friday....

Yes, but it's not a complete collection; as for some bizarre reason two songs from Peggy's original 1960 Christmas album, Christmas Carousel, were not included: "The Christmas List" and "The Christmas Riddle." However, amazingly, they found room on the CD for a bunch of bonus tracks.

If we had done this release at Real Gone Music, this would have been a *complete* collection.

So, anyway, this is far from being the "Ultimate" Peggy Lee Christmas album that the CD's title suggests. In short: the brainless wonders at Universal Music blew it big time with this release. And Peggy deserved better.

I'm sorry to hear that there will not be any other releases this year.

I was looking forward to purchasing a follow up to The Great Songs of Christmas, and hoping for some surprise release (The Jack Halloran Singers, perhaps?).


Thanks again, Chip, for all you do for us Christmas Music Lovers.
