A new release on CD this year from Jasmine Records that contains the following two albums in Chip's top 500:The Four Aces
- A Merry Christmas
#100 (First Tier) containing two bonus tracks
The Three Suns
- The Sounds of Christmas
#159 (Second Tier)
The songs on both of these albums are on the CD in the same order that they appear on the original LP releases. Nice.
The original album art is not as nice. It appears to be a collage with the correct album art from the Four Aces
LP, but it uses a second release of the album art for the Three Suns
LP. Anthony may like their choice
