Great News Chip!

Maybe you can talk Real Gone Music into releasing two versions: "standard audio CD" and the Deluxe version burned into a 24K gold-plated CD like DCC and other companies did on some spectacular recordings to make them last 100 years?

This has to be the most anticipated release since the announcement that the 1954 version was being re-recorded for stereo in 1959.

I can't wait to be able to hear the snare drums at the beginning of 'Good King Wenceslas' again!

Regards to all.

John

Steve:

Sony approved all of my bonus tracks, but there were actually seven, not eight (although I wish there were!), as I mistakenly typed in my previous post. Sorry about that. I edited my post to correct the typo.



John:

A 24K gold-plated CD would be a wonderful thing to see and so fitting for this release
the #1 Christmas album in my Top 500; but unfortunately, Gordon doesn't do them at Real Gone Music. In addition, it would be considered an alternate release, requiring a separate contract negotiation with Sony. But all that notwithstanding, if Gordon did them, you can be sure that I would definitely push for it.

Hello Chip,

You and Johnny have a great idea with that 24 karat gold disc idea.  I just bought a DCC gold on the Everly Brothers as well as Roy Orbison, both of which were remastered by the great Steve Hoffman. I just played the Everly Brother's Best and its a beauty to the ears.  Looking really forward to hearing the Roy Orbison DCC Gold disc too as its suppose to be amazing as well.

Chip, I am absolutely thrilled that you got seven bonus songs added to Percy Faith's masterpiece, Music Of Christmas, as one would expect only maybe one or two extra songs on a classic of this magnitude.  I cannot wait to hear My Favorite Things from Sound of Music on this beauty with the new remastering.

What fortunate and lucky people we are to have you, Chip, fighting all these years to get these timeless and exquisite Christmas masterpieces remastered and released with original artwork.  And now finally the Holy Grail of all Christmas instrumental albums, Percy Faith's Music of Christmas, is coming to us in time for Christmas 2017.

Thanks a million, Chip!

Best regards,

Steve

Hello Chip,

Starting to get excited about an anticipated street date for the monumental Percy Faith Music Of Christmas CD remaster by Real Gone Music.  I was just wondering since this sounds like a single disc release with the seven bonus tracks, will the cover be a full display shot of the original wonderful poinsettia cover since its not a twofer package?

Best regards,

Steve

Thanks so much Chip, you and Gordon have made me a very happy man!  I just so wanted this masterpiece released on cd with its very own magnificent cover.  I cannot wait to hear the release date in the coming months as well as the highly anticipated date for the Fred Waring Christmas cd twofer.  What a year this is going to be for us traditional Christmas music lovers.

I received the new digital remaster of Percy Faith's Music Of Christmas from Battery Studios here in New York that will be available for retail purchase on CD this coming November 3rd and, needless to say, it's absolutely stupendous.

I wish I could have gotten this done a long time ago; but alas, better late than never.

Senior Mastering Engineer Vic Anesini has graced this classic and legendary recording with a resplendent digital remastering job that befits the
#1 album in my Top 500.

Thank you Vic and God bless.

Hello Chip,

They say, "All good things come to those who wait," and oh boy have we all waited for this day to come.  This masterpiece by Percy Faith, Music Of Christmas, has been the most highly anticipated remastering project, I believe, in the long history of the Christmas genre field and perhaps in any genre at all!

I cannot tell you how great the anticipation is for all of us to hear what your ears have now heard first hand.  I never dreamed that someone with Vic Anesini's unsurpassed reputation would be chosen for this remastering project given all the years that these vintage masters have sat in the vault being ignored. Vic is the man who has been given great accolades for the remastering of Elvis Presley's iconic music library, including the greatest selling Christmas Album in the world and the only diamond certified one in the United States for over ten million in record sales.

Indeed, God bless Mr. Vic Anesini, Mr. Gordon Anderson and Mr. Lawrence F. "Chip" Arcuri for making this dream release come to fruition. Without the three of you working together, this once in a lifetime project might have never gotten released, and certainly never in this magnificent glory!

Best regards to all three of these titans of the music business,

Steve

Wonder if you can hear the snare drum rolls at the beginning of 'Good King Wenceslas' again? 

Vic Anesini did a lot of the Elvis restoration work, and if you see a photo of 'his' mastering studio, he has one very important item: a turntable so he can hear how the original LP sounded, so that is wonderful to know.

Looking forward to November!

Regards,

John

Of course, and that is the very first thing that I indeed checked when I got the new digital remaster.

Just wondering about this release...
Will there for sure be a second pressing?
What if this cd will be out of print will sony release it again themselves?
Since i thought this album has never been out of print since release?
Thank you

It's neither out of print with Real Gone Music or with Sony Music: another pressing is coming from RGM of our newly remastered expanded edition with my liner notes and bonus tracks; and Sony is still printing their unremastered version.
