    What do you mean pull out the Christmas CDs? I never put them away :D

    I do however put one in the player more often than others. It's The Smith Trio's Good News of Great Joy album. It has the most beautiful arrangements on it! I listen to this all year.

    We listened to Kenny G's Christmas CD today.
    And the Chipmunks last week!!

    Now if we could just combine, Alvin, Kenny, and the Beach Boys....that would be something.

    I listen to Christmas CDs in the car but to Pandora.com or iTunes otherwise. I'm hooked on Pandora's Christmas music. They make it so easy to choose your faves ...

    3. "The Carpenters: Christmas Portrait"

    4. "Making Spirits Bright: The Dean Martin Christmas Collection" (gotta have Dino)

    5. Brian Setzer Orchestra - "Boogie Woogie Christmas"/"Dig That Crazy Cristmas"

    6. Tennessee Ernie Ford - "Christmastime's a'Coming"

    Now Playing: Jim Lauderdale - "Whisper"

    Hey Joshua,

    I like it. Most of the songs are original by Todd Agnew, and they come from the point of view of how would he have reacted to the Christmas story events if he were each of the Biblical characters. He also has a lot of other Christian artists singing with him.
    Some songs are not overtly "Christmas-sy" in style like you might hear on some CD's, but they are very much Todd Agnew.
    i recommend it.:thumbsup:

    While I prefer more contemporary music, there is something VERY special about putting on a CD that I have that's just harps. The young women who recorded the CDs play on harps made by their father and the music is just so beautiful and soothing - I have all their CDs and play them when I want some peace in the house - it seems to quiet everyone down. We also use them at church at times in between services and such.

    Here's their link: http://www.marinimadeharps.com/index.htm

    And here's the link to their CDs: http://www.marinimadeharps.com/recordings.htm

    Here's where you can listen to some of the music:

    I've been enjoying the Denver & the Mile High Orchestra "Timeless Christmas." D&TMHO is "big-band-ish" Christian music - good stuff!

    I also listen to "Bethlehem's Treasure" from Integrity Music a lot this time of year.

    Is Dig That Crazy Christmas a great album or what?

    I think it was you that recommended this to me last year, but cannot remember. If it was, thanks again! I saw the Brian Setzer Orchestra (before the swing revival) at Jannus Landing in St. Pete with my then-girlfriend. If you haven't already seen him, you need to! Until I bought that Christmas album, I had forgotten how much I enjoyed Setzer

    Don't forget the Christmas album by the Manhattan Transfer. Gotta love those four-part harmonies (I've seen them live too).

    Regards to you - hope all is well with you and yours,
    BiR

    Thank you, and to you as well.

    We saw the Brian Setzer Orch in Wilmington, De. at the Grand Opera House a week ago last Thursday.

    I think for some reason they have a reputation of being lightweights but, man, those guys can swing.

    One of the highlights of the evening was their rendition of Jimmy Dorsey's version of the Nutcracker Suite.

    He explained that they always try to keep to the original arrangements as much as they can, but that they just couldn't help but to throw a nod to Martin Denny in there.

    It was a great show.

    Also saw Marty Stuart last night in a small theater on the campus of the University of Delaware. That's another underrated band that really rocks.

    He did a number of Christmas tunes, including "Beautiful Star of Bethlehem", which is my favorite Christmas song.

    Now Playing: Flaco Jimenez - "Sleepytown"

    I didn't find out that the BSO was in Newport News until two days AFTER the show, when I went to briansetzer.com to see if they were headed my way. Oh well: better luck next year.

    And you are correct about Marty - excellent artist. Wow: you share my eclectic taste in music. I guess great minds think alike!!

    A sincere wish that your Christmas was as great as mine,
    BiR (who is listening to the Indigo Girls and is late for work!)
