Growing up in the early 70's my family had this 8 track tape called Christmas with Glen Campbell and Sonny James. I loved that 8 track tape and looked forward to it every year. Great songs, great voices. Some traditional songs but a lot of others that you never heard anywhere else. As I say, I loved it. It was the best part of Christmas, getting to play that green 8 track tape.

Jump to the 80's and I have my family starting my own traditions. Well, one day while looking through the Christmas cassette tapes by the bundle at Walgreen's, I see Christmas with Glen Campbell and Sonny James so I snatch it up. My kids grew up on it as I did. They love it, too.

In the early 2000's, knowing cassettes don't last, I copy it from cassette to cd and make additional copies for my Mom and brothers and sisters.

A few years after that, I start an extensive search to see if it's ever been put on cd, searching all the Christmas music bins and searching on line. No luck. However, while searching I run across a review of the album that reads "Best Christmas music ever! Wish I could find this on CD" which also had the Yahoo! user name. I take a chance and email the person and ask if he ever found it and that I did have the music converted from cassette to cd and would make a copy and send it if desired.

The response was an over whelming "YES! I can't believe this!" through details of additional emails we worked out 4 copies for him and his family. He loved the album as much as I did and wants to share it with his family. He lives in Illinois not too far from where I was growing up when I lived there until 1973 before moving to New Orleans. He almost didn't get the cd's in time as this was 2005 post Hurricane Katrina. Mail was real slow in and out of New Orleans. He did get it 4 days before Christmas. I got the biggest Thank you ever. Every year he sends an email thanking me and wishing me and mine a Merry Christmas.

That's my favorite Christmas music and story about it.

I generally like the old stuff... Sinatra, Bing, Burl, Dean Martin, etc. but I do like this particular song and this version of it as well.
