I was lucky enough to pick up a copy of the 2012 import CD reissue of Christmas Sing-In by The Gunter Kallmann Choir a few years back. Originally released on vinyl in the early '70s, it's the perfect mix of Now sound-meets-easy listening instrumentation, Ray Conniff Singers/Living Voices-esque vocals, and Christmas cheer both sacred and secular. Christmas Sing-In is truly a unique, feel good Holiday album that's got something for EVERYONE and is way better than I thought it would be! The thing is, it's nearly IMPOSSIBLE to find in the secondhand market on vinyl. The aforementioned 2012 CD is also quite scarce (read: non-existent!). Does anyone also remember/know of this album besides me? Why is it so difficult to track down? Clearly the import CD reissue was popular. I wonder if Gordon at Real Gone Music would ever entertain a proper domestic reissue? I just love this album!

This album by the G√ľnter Kallmann Choir was recorded in July 1970 and released by Polydor Records later that same year. It resides in the "Bubbling Under" section of my Top 500, coming in at #459. As for a possible release on CD, I could never recommend this to Gordon, as there are just way too many albums in my 1st, 2nd and 3rd Tiers that are ahead of it.

Hey, Get2Me,

From time to time I buy LPs from Discogs.com.

I just checked and they have two copies for sale of the LP you're looking for.  One of them is graded "Near Mint."

Here's where I found them:  http://www.discogs.com/sell/list?master_id=641141&ev=mb

The catch is that you'd have to pay shipping charges from the United Kingdom.

I'm listening to the album on Youtube.  Very nice!  Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
