Snow Miser:
I wasn't able to find George Greeley's Best Loved Christmas Piano Concertos. I was only able to find "Greatest Motion Picture Piano Concertos".
Is it under another name?

It's also available on Spotify.  There's a way to record from Spotify using Audacity.  Send me a message offline and I can help if needed.

Any opinions on Ed Sullivan Presents the Music of Christmas (I presume he doesn't appear on this album).  Samples available at Amazon and I have to tell you I like what I hear.

Ed Sullivan didn't appear on the actual album, but he picked the songs that were recorded. Ray Bloch served as a Music Consultant for the overall project. The album was conducted by John Gregory and he arranged 12 of the 15 songs. The other 3 songs were arranged by Teo Macero and he produced the album as well.

This great album resides in the 1st Tier of my Top 500, coming in at #62. It was the first in a series of 'Ed Sullivan Presents' recorded productions for Columbia Records.

Thanks Chip.  I didn't realize the Ed Sullivan Presents album was so high on your list.  Have ordered a copy, as well as copies of this year's Real Gone reissues.  Can't wait for the listening season to start.

I see that iTunes now has one of Chip's Top Play titles, Ace Cannon's Christmas Cheers, available for download.

Chip,


I am wondering about the George Greeley Best Loved Christmas Piano Concertos?  i see some on eBay and not to bad on pricing, but some have the familiar brownish label on the LP and some have a grey label on the LP.  Is one of these a re-issue by Warner Brothers Records?


You know me, as with you, i do prefer origianal releases where possible over reissues.


[EDITED] to correct the spelling of Concertos.  I had it as Condertos

Susan,


For the George Greeley 1959 Christmas LP, the original Warner Bros. record label was the gold; and the original album jacket front cover was the green with the white Christmas tree.

Just discovered that my favorite Harry Simeone Chorale album "The Wonderful Songs of Christmas" (the album that brought me to the Yule Log to begin with) is now on digital! Just downloaded it off iTunes!  :)

That would be awesome, Chip! I hope you're also able to get his 1973 "It's Christmas Once Again" released on CD, too!  :)

Wade,

I actually got the green light from Gordon (Anderson) at Real Gone Music for a CD reissue project for Harry Simeone's 1973 Christmas LP in late December 2017. It would have been released for Christmas 2018; but unfortunately, I couldn't track down the original masters.

Regrettably, the album was recorded with a small independent record company, Omnisound Records, and no one seems to know what became of the original masters; even Mr. Simeone's daughter Molly, with whom I am acquainted, doesn't know.

I talked about all this in my posts of 12/29/17 and 12/31/17 on the following thread:

Thanks for the info, Chip. Very disappointing the masters can't be found.  Hopefully one day....

Today I was delighted to find out that the classic, original Christmas with Danny Davis and the Nashville Brass is finally available in a digital format.


Incidentally, while both Amazon and iTunes use lossy formats for their download releases (MP3 and AAC, respectively), you might be interested to know that most if not all the titles mentioned in this thread can be purchased as CD-quality, or in some cases better than CD-quality lossless downloads via qobuz. That Danny Davis album I just mentioned, for instance, is available there in both 44.1 kHz (CD) and 96.0 (Hi-Res) versions.

At first I was afraid that Danny Davis was the re-recorded version, which has been out digitally for quite awhile. Listening to the samples on Qobuz vs. the ones on Amazon (for the re-recording), they seem to be different.


Sweet! I love that old album.

The Danny Davis re-release is the best news I've heard in a while.  It is absolutely one of my top-10 favorite Christmas albums.
