I just ordered the 2012 Real Gone Music release of Steve & Eydie's That Holiday Feeling! from Amazon. The CD I received looks identical to my old 2002 GL Music release, with the same catalog number, a 2002 copyright date, and no mention of Real Gone Music anywhere on the exterior of the product (just GL Music). My question, before I open it, is: Is this in fact the 2012 release, or did Amazon send me the older one? Can anybody who has this CD confirm?

The Real Gone Music CD is the exact same CD that Steve and Eydie released in 2002 through their record company GL Music. Gordon is just distributing it for them.

Thanks for the confirmation, Chip. I kind of figured that was the case, but wanted to double check before I tore into it. Merry Christmas, buddy!

Good Post Christmas Wishes All!   Chip, kudos once again to an amazing Yule Log...really made the holidays bright again!
Regarding Steve and Eydie...does anyone know if the single "Go Tell It on the Mountain" (which appeared on the album that Steve and Eydie did with Arthur Fiedler and Leontyne Price), ever appeared on CD?   It is not on the That Holiday Feeling CD.   Also, does anyone know if ALL the Christmas 'sessions' of both Steve and Eydie and then Steve (solo?) have been listed in print anywhere or are on CD?   Recently, I bought the Perry Como complete sessions and I have the Crosby collection as well as Sinatra's.   Looking into finding Nat King Cole (complete?) and Dean Martin (complete?).   I am hoping the experts here on the world's greatest Christmas Music Blog can help me out in my quest for complete sets.   Thanks all in advance , hope everyone is staying warm and continuing to listen to some great music this Winter 2017!  Regards, Jon P in TN

Sorry for the delayed response, I've been sick with the flu and bronchitis for the last half-month.

Glad to hear you enjoyed the Yule Log broadcast this year.

And no, there is no complete Steve & Eydie collection anywhere. Besides "Go Tell It On The Mountain," another bonus song that is missing from the reissue CD is Steve's great solo of "'Twas The Night Before Christmas," which he recorded exclusively in 1967 for Goodyear's The Great Songs Of Christmas, Vol. 7. There's also Eydie's solo of "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear," which she recorded exclusively in 1969 for RCA's Christmas In New York, Vol. 3.

In 2012, when Steve and Eydie first released their Christmas album through their private GL Music label, I mentioned to Steve about adding the above songs as additional bonus tracks to "Baby It's Cold Outside" and "Hurry Home For Christmas" which they had included on their new reissue CD. He said he'd look into it, but unfortunately nothing ever came of it.

As for Nat and Dino, perhaps complete collections for both will be forthcoming from Real Gone Music in the future. We'll see.

   Thanks very much Chip, hope you feel better or are feeling better now.
    As always, I wanted to come to the source for all things Christmas music...I too hope to see some new Real Gone Music releases...good to know that you have had a lot of input on these.   Keep up the great work!

    Have a good weekend!    Regards,  Jon P in Tennessee

Thanks, Jon. And yes, I'm feeling a bit better now. There was a worry that the bronchitis would settle into pneumonia, but after a week on an inhaler and antibiotics, that danger, thankfully, now seems to have passed.

As for the new Real Gone Music Christmas CD releases that are coming out each year, Gordon pretty much now only releases what I personally recommend. This as a result of the sales success of my releases.

A complete Nat and Dino are meritorious ideas, but there are just too many other priorities ahead of them right now to consider. In addition to that, both artists would require engagement (meaning a fight) with UMG (Universal Music Group) to secure the copyrights for distribution, as they are a notoriously difficult company to deal with.

Unfortunately, all of Nat's holiday material (his Christmas album and singles) were on the Capitol Record label, which now belongs to UMG; as well as the first of Dino's two Christmas albums, which was another Capitol LP. Thankfully, though, Dino's second Christmas album was on his buddy Sinatra's Reprise Record label, and that now belongs to WMG (Warner Music Group), which would mean a relatively easy quest to secure the legal copyrights for distribution.

As for this year's CD releases, rest assured that, as always, I will make the exclusive announcement in a group email as well as here on my message board via my "Chip's Tips" column as soon as the deals are closed with the record companies.

There is another song that I include on my personal Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme Christmas Collection - Eydie's wonderful rendition of "My Favorite Things" which she recorded for her 1965 album, Eydie Gorme Sings The Great Songs From The Sound Of Music And Other Broadway Hits.

Yes, that song as well as the two Christmas standards from Eydie's 1966 Spanish Christmas album with the Trio Los Panchos Navidad Means Christmas,
"Noche De Paz" (Silent Night) and "Blanca Navidad" (White Christmas), will be included on a Real Gone Music complete Christmas collection CD if we do one.

Chip, I've read the Dean Martin Family Trust licensed his Reprise recordings, which would include his second Christmas album,  to Sony Music. Is that true?

I did some checking, and yes, apparently Sony Music recently acquired Dino's Reprise Records catalog. This is not a problem, as working with SME (Sony Music Entertainment) to secure copyrights for distribution wouldn't be a problem; however, WMG (Warner Music Group) would have been a trifle easier to deal with.
