Bargain Basement

I am not nearly as big a connoisseur of budget Christmas releases as my friend Lee.  But that doesn't mean I don't record the occasional record who's provenance is a little shady. Take this record, for instance.  Nice cover, but no real credits.  If you aren't going to do right by whoever made this music, that's a big red flag. And I know you can't hold the sleeve in your hand, but trust me, it's flimsy.  Designed to fall apart before you have a chance to listen again next year.  Why?  So you have to buy it again, probably in a slightly different jacket with a different look so you think you might be getting something different.  But no, it'll be the same songs in a different order.  Enough complaining, it is what it is.  I first shared this with you in 2011, but I've re-encoded it at a higher bitrate just for fun.  This is Vocals And Orchestra By Popular Radio And Television Artists-18 Christmas Songs (Broadway BR-1028, Mono).
