Buon Natale

I always pick up Christmas records I see from other countries. Well, they may not actually be from other countries, but they feature music from other places. Sometimes I like what I hear, sometimes not. This one stood out, not because it featured a couple of tracks from Sergio Franchi, but because it featured an Italian version of  Frosty The Snowman!  And man, is it good!  So you should download this just for that track.  This is Buon Natale-Christmas In Italy With Sergio Franchi And Favorite Italian Stars (4 Corners Of The World (Kapp) FCS-4223, Stereo, 1965).

O'Tannenbaum sounds particularly reverent and majestic. This is a very nice find! Thank you for posting!
