C’mon! You ALL know it’s coming!

The holidays are rapidly approaching (just ask retailers). And while the warmth of summer is still noticeable, and the coolness of Fall has just begun (in some places), the winter holidays are just mere months away. With that, there are the inevitable flow of holiday albums that begin…right about now.

On October 7, Legacy Recordings will add to their Classic Christmas Album series, eight new titles. In those, you will find titles featuring Frank Sinatra, Johnny Mathis, Barbra Streisand, Il Divo, Perry Como, a collection of Pop tracks, a collection of Rock tracks, and a collection of Country tracks. Unfortunately, The Classic Christmas Country Album will be a Walmart exclusive.  These albums will feature remastered tracks, with some previously unreleased music.For those interested, check out the releases and their details below:
