Christmas Ball!
What we started with our compilation ’Heading For The Christmas Ball’ (BCD 17611) in 2020, we would like to continue: to provide the festival of love with more exuberance, even though some songs are nostalgic and dreamy and you might even feel transported back to your own childhood. This Christmas disc invites you to the Christmas ball, to dance, to swing, to contemplation and exuberance among family members, friends, peers and guests.

Christmas Rarities Parade
Rare recordings, which cannot be found on any Christmas collection, are in focus here. Once again we can present a number of songs that have never been available on CD before. For example, a novelty number by Dancer, Prancer & Nervous, The Singing Reindeer or I Like A Sleighride by Peggy Lee. Great female voices by Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Mahalia Jackson, The Fontane Sisters and others can be heard.

R&B and blues are on your ears from Floyd Dixon, Nat ’King’ Cole and Sugar Chile Robinson, and Christmas classics from famous greats like Andy Williams, Dean Martin and Bobby Darin. There’s also a track from the 1957 TV special by Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby. Rex Griffin delivers Western Swing, Django Reinhardt remains the guitar icon, while Ramsey Lewis conjures up Christmasy tunes on piano. The CD again features producer’s notes on each song, plus photos and illustrations in the 24-page booklet!
