I just received mine Ken, now playing, and I must admit that I like it! Warming up to Premiere League football this afternoon. Dreadfull weather outside and Elvis Christmas With the RPO on the stereo. (And some brews piled up) :smt020
There are some real fine arrangements on here. The First Noel, which I never liked on the original album, shines here! So far I think this is a real fine album done by the RPO crew! :P Finally after first listen, I like the treatment of the four bonus songs on here. I'm sure gonna play this album this season, along with the others. ::rocks
I wonder it they used the binaural masters for those 4 gospel numbers? Isolating Elvis' vocal They sure sound fine to me! I'm actually digging this!.....

The 4 tracks on deluxe is ok nothing more IMO
As it stands im happy that we got the xmas one the last....who knows if released first or 2nd Sony might be so dissapointed with the sales that they wouldnt release more.
No matter how well it might do in the coming weeks regarding sales it will still do porly compared to the others in total sales.....I think.

Thanks, Robbo. I still haven't listened to the album and that's only the second track I've heard from it. Although I found it quite inert and slightly mundane on the RPO`s part. Elvis`s singing is just marvellous of course, and there's nothing objectionable here, in my opinion. His original recording of Peace in the Valley being just stellar. But this seems wanting. Especially when it seemed to be building towards something more. This aside, I loved your video. Great work.

The album chart is looking very competitive at this moment in time, too. Which it usually is during December, but there's some great releases in the top-twenty.
