Winter Is Here


One of my favorite releases of years' past (2005 & 2006) is this great album by Hugo Winterhalter. The only problem I have with it is that it's too short. But I have a plan for that. Go download Hugo Winterhalter And His Orchestra And Chorus-Christmas Magic (RCA Camden CAL-449, 1958) and then come back for more. Oh, this record appears to have first been released as a 10", Christmas Magic (RCA Victor LPM 3132), shown below, then later expanded with two not-very-Christmassy tracks to the 12" I've shared above.

Ernie that Chrismtas Magic Cover is the exact same design RCA used on Perry Como's "Around the Christmas Tree" 10" Album from 1953.

Here's a link to check it out:

By the way, this is the absolute best site for anything Como, and can also be used as a great time guide for checking out release dates for other RCA recordings especially original relases, 78's, EP's and 10"'s.

I've never seen that Perry Como 10" LP, but I have seen those little ornament shaped EPs before. Never been able to afford one, mind you... Maybe someday.
