This 15th edition of "Chip's Tips" announces the upcoming 2015 Christmas CD releases from Real Gone Music.

But first, as I had mentioned in my previous group email, the biggest releases anticipated for this year, Fred Waring and The Pennsylvanians
' Decca Records Christmas albums 'Twas The Night Before Christmas and Christmas Time, could not be secured for release for this year. Nor was another highly anticipated release, Jack Jones' Kapp Records Christmas album, The Jack Jones Christmas Album. However, let's keep our fingers tightly crossed that we can finally get it done for next year.

Now, first and foremost on the list of Real Gone Music's Christmas CD releases for 2015 is my second Top recommendation (after the Fred Waring albums) to Gordon Anderson (Co-Founder/President of Real Gone Music) for release in 2015: John Gary's classic 1964 Christmas album, The John Gary Christmas Album. For my original earlier announcement of this album's release, along with another one of my top recommendations for 2015, The Living Voices' 1962 Christmas album The Living Voices Sing Christmas Music, click here. And for my original announcement of another two of my top recommendations for 2015, The Three Suns and George Melachrino Christmas albums, click here.
