The New Old Hugo

For many years I've shared Hugo Winterhalter's great Christmas album, Christmas Magic, with you,but not this one.  This is the 10" version, and it predates the 12" record I've been sharing with you all this time.  I think when they decided to put the old music out as a 12", they stole some star-titled tracks from another 10" and called it good.  Which is a shame, because Hugo had quite a few single-only Christmas tracks that would have made great additions to this record (Hint-Search the blog!).  But for now, you're gonna get the original 10" with it's original line-up.  This is Hugo Winterhalter And His Orchestra And Chorus-Christmas Magic (RCA Victor 10" LPM 3132, Mono, 1953).

1. White Christmas (just the orchestra)
2. Winter Wonderland (featuring Judy Valentine)
3. I'd Like To Hitch A Ride With Santa Claus-That Christmas Feeling (featuring Judy Valentine)
4. That's What I Want For Christmas (featuring Judy Valentine)
5. Carol Of The Bells
6. Christmas Island
7. Deck The Halls With Boughs Of Holly-Wassail Song
8. Away In A Manger-I Saw Three Ships
