Just gotten several Mp3 downloads from Amazon.com-Mantovani-"Christmas Carols",Mario Lanza-"Christmas Hymns and Carols" and have several more on my Wish list! Not a bad price for each,either,under $10 apiece! Great sound too,despite the VBR Bit rates!

Hi Michael,

I'm and old guy way behind the tech curve so I  had to Google "VBR" to find out what you meant.  And came up with this article written by an enthusiastic VBR convert:

Just gotten another Mantovani Christmas Download:The 1963 Followup to His "Christmas Carols" album! I'd gotten it on Amazon.com,but no CD yet at the Moment-Another one Real Gone might consider,as "Christmas Bells" is played on the Yule Log Broadcast,and is Penned by "Monty" himself!

Michael,

I was already asked about this on the board recently; but no, Monty's second Christmas album from 1963 is not being considered for release by Real Gone Music because Oliver Lomax (A&R chief at Dutton-Vocalion Records) is currently printing it on his record label overseas in the United Kingdom.

It's only being sold on Amazon U.K., not our domestic Amazon; and they currently have one copy left.

And please be advised that Oliver's Dutton-Vocalion reissue is with its original U.K. artwork and name, A Song For Christmas, not Christmas Greetings From Mantovani, as it was released here in America.

Yes indeed Michael, Gordon is a good egg, and Gabby, too.

By the way, when the new Christmas CD releases are announced on the Hoffman site, it is at the time that the official press release goes out.

It is
here, on the Yule Log.com Message Board, where they are exclusively announced first. For this year's 2016 releases, I announced them on July 24th via "Chip's Tips" (Edition #16); conversely, on the Hoffman site, they weren't announced until September 21st, which is the day the official press release went out.

BTW,I got a Notice from Amazon that My CD of Monty's "Christmas Carols" will be sent out on Nov. 4th. Oh,BTW,Chip,will this sport the "Blueback" London label,as I know Real Gone goes all out  of their way to include the Original TM Logos and all in their CD Reissues!

Yes, the original London Records blue-back album jacket artwork will be included in the CD booklet, on the back page.

I'd found "A Song For Christmas" as an Single Album CD! All 12 tracks are on it! and it's from Vocalion,too,and it's on Amazon.com,the US Version of the site! It's only $8.87. (Reissue was in 2006.)

Yes, but it's not being sold by Amazon direct on the domestic site; it's only available from private marketplace vendors.
