1-CD-Album digipac (4-plated) with 32-page booklet, 21 tracks. Playing time approx. 56 mns.
A completely expanded version of his Christmas LP, now including all of his commercial and non-commercial seasonal recordings!
Hank Snow pioneered the country concept LP as far back as the early 1950s. In 1967, he released 'Christmas With Hank Snow' and the following year he released 'Tales Of The Yukon' based on the popular poems of Robert Service that Hank Snow had learned as a child in Canada. Now Bear Family re-releases those two LPs separately, and the Christmas LP has been augmented with all of his commercial and non-commercial Christmas recordings... including ultra-rare early '50s Thesaurus transcriptions (studio quality records made for radio play only). What's more appropriate than Snow at Christmas.
Nothing evokes the memories of Christmases past like music. It captures the warmth of family and friends reunited for a few days at least. It gladdens the heart with familiar melodies, and lifts the spirits with its timeless message of peace, love, and goodwill toward men.
This collection features all of Hank Snow's Christmas recordings made between 1953 and 1975. The songs run the gamut from Silent Night, written back in 1818 to unforgettable hits from the great era of Christmas songs in the Forties and Fifties... together with some songs written especially for Hank's seasonal offerings.
The core of this collection is Hank's 1967 LP, 'Christmas With Hank Snow,' but it has been augmented with his early '50s Christmas EP, rare LP tracks, Christmas singles, and never-commercially-available Thesaurus transcriptions. One of the songs, Christmas Roses had special significance for Hank: he used it as part of a Christmas radio show that he put together for foreign radio stations. This collection also includes Hank's perennial favorite, Reindeer Boogie (recently revived by the current Mrs. Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood).
Music and rejoicing lie at the heart of the Christmas season, and this generously full collection takes its place alongside other classic Christmas albums.
