Welcome to episode 30 of Holly Jolly X’masu! In this special Ko-fi patron-sponsored episode, I talk about the 1965 album, “Christmas Young Party,” by Columbia All Stars.
As I state in the episode, this is an album I searched for for quite a long time. It definitely didn’t disappoint. I’ve actually had it for several months, and I even shared the cover on Instagram back in April. I was going to feature a children’s album I actually received in my latest shipment, but I decided to go with Columbia All Stars instead. It’s a much better album, and it better reflects how much I appreciate the support. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate any feedback I receive.
As promised, here’s the video for Karou Chiga’s “Midnight Guitar.”
Thanks for listening, and I hope “Christmas Young Party” brought you a little yuletide cheer. In my neck of the woods, it looks like it will finally start feeling like fall later this week. That always gets me in the mood for more Christmas music. I’ll be working on my next episode throughout the week, and picking up Norah Jones’s “I Dream of Christmas” this Friday. Between that and the albums I didn’t get to listen to enough last year, I should have plenty of Christmas music to listen to when I’m not listening to Christmas music for the podcast. Speaking of which, be sure to tune back in on the 25th when I discuss Ohashi Trio’s 2013 album, “Magic.” It’s one of the best and most original Christmas albums from the 2010’s, so you don’t want to miss it.
As always, any feedback on this episode would be appreciated. If have any suggestions, or if you’d like to recommend a song or album for a future episode, drop me a line and let me know.
Remember, I’ve added a button to my Ko-fi page. If you’d like to support me one cup of coffee at a time, a donation is only $3. I’ve also opened a Redbubble store. I only have a couple designs up, but keep an eye on it as I’ll be trying to add more. Any proceeds or donations received will be put towards purchasing new Japanese Christmas music to review for future episodes. You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And if you get a chance, leave me a review on iTunes. Thanks!
