Here's yet another new Christmas CD release from DRG Records
:

It's Tennessee Ernie Ford's 1963 LP, "The Story of Christmas," which he did with the Roger Wagner Chorale. This is the first time this LP has been issued on CD, and was the second of five Christmas albums Mr. Ford recorded for Capitol Records between 1958 and 1971.

The other LPs were "The Star Carol" (1958), "Sing We Now of Christmas" (1965), "O Come All Ye Faithful" (1968), and "Christmas" (1971). To date, only "The Star Carol" has been released on CD, but sadly, it is now long out of print.

Doesn't that figure.  I just bought a sealed copy of this LP off Ebay.  Oh well.  So it goes.  It only cost $14.00 with shipping so that wasn't too bad.

That's a bummer, man. But for a sealed album, you got a good deal.

**By the way, a correction to my initial post on this thread:

To date, there have actually been 2 of Tennessee Ernie Ford's Christmas albums released on CD: "The Star Carol," which I mentioned above, and "Christmas," which I didn't. Sadly, both are long out-of-print.
