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





My friend Alan Bunting in the U.K. has just completed production work on a third Christmas compilation CD for the Guild Music label. It will be released in Europe in October; and then here in the United States sometime after that.

The new CD will be called, A Carol Symphony - Music For The Festive Season.


This CD, like its predecessor Christmas Lights (the second Guild Christmas CD), also contains songs from two long out-of-print classic Christmas albums that I am still currently working on getting back into print: Stanley Black's 1956 album, Christmas Holiday For Romance (4 songs); and Frank Chacksfield's 1959 album, Music For A Merry Christmas (8 songs). In fact, regarding the latter, between this CD and the Christmas Lights CD can be found the complete Chacksfield album. But no worries for anyone out there who is a fan of the album, as I will still continue to work diligently to get the album released on CD in its original form with its original album jacket artwork and with a full studio remastering.

Here is the complete track listing:

Thank you for this update, Chip.  I have enjoyed each of the previous two Christmas comps and suspect this one will be another that I will enjoy.

Just to let you all know that this collection is now available direct from Guild in Switzerland and shops in the UK.  Guild have an excellent mail order service and I have several friends in the USA who use it regularly and often find it cheaper than buying locally.

Not sure if it will be released in the USA in time for Christmas but I'm sure the US distributor (Albany Music) would be pleased to confirm a date.

To buy direct from Guild, here's their shop:

Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing Chip!  I appreciate the hard work you do by working with these record labels and getting these albums released.

Thanks loads Jim, but other than promoting the CD via my exclusive announcement, I can't claim credit for releasing this one; it belongs to my friend Alan Bunting in Scotland.
