Happy Holidays, Gang!
Here’s Bobby’s sole Christmas single in rare WIDE STEREO from his excellent 1960 spiritual Christmas LP, “The 25th Day of December”. (Note the original single, “Child of God”, was released as mono-only).
Released by ATCO in 1960, Bobby chose to record more “spiritual” songs to celebrate the season as opposed to the more traditional pop “Jingle Bells”, “Sleigh Ride” tunes he could have easily knocked out of the park. As usual, Bobby wanted to do something different – an album that felt like the holiday spirit – spiritual jazz pop gospel – the Darin way.
Arranged by Bobby Scott (who arranged Bobby’s two originally shelved ATCO LPs, “It’s You Or No One” and “Winners”). There was simply a glut of Bobby material he recorded at the time and they released those two complete albums after his tenure at ATCO.
This wonderful seasonal album is available in WIDE stereo exclusively on the Real Gone Music CD reissue, mastered directly from the original stereo tapes!
