Hi Chip! I hope summer is treating you well!

Since the Living Strings/Voices/Guitars easy listening CD reissues were hits for Real Gone Music, is there any future hope of bringing Al Caiola And Riz Ortolani's Sound Of Christmas to the CD format?

I've loved this album ever since I was exposed to the handful of tracks from it that wound up on Capitol Records' Ultra-Lounge: Christmas Cocktails compilations. Fans of Bossa Nova rhythms, lounge, late-60s guitar instrumentals, easy listening orchestral pop, and slightly off-beat renditions of holiday classics would find this 1968 United Artists release a jewel to behold. They seriously don't make Christmas albums like this anymore!

No plans right now, Peter, but this one would be tough as it's a UMG (Universal Music Group) property and our hands are full enough right now with the titles we're working on with them. This album resides in the 2nd Tier of my Top 500, coming in at #152.

Thanks for chiming in, Chip. I just love the vibe of this late-60s Christmas album. Maybe one day it will see a reissue from Real Gone Music or some other label. Hey, I can dream, right?
