A Very Merry Golden Records Christmas!

Golden Records was one of the first and ultimately most successful children’s record labels in America. Grammy Award-winning producer Arthur Shimkin imagined the iconic label in 1948. Through rich orchestration and the use of A-list talent, Golden Records created a timeless, one of a kind sound, releasing beloved songs and stories that entertained and educated children for decades.
Back by popular demand, Golden Records returns to release a series of highly anticipated albums, launching a series of instant classics and remastered original recordings to come. Award-winning music producer Tony Shimkin, son of Golden Records creator, Arthur Shimkin, has carried on his father’s legacy, producing each of the releases, reimagined for the child in all of us! This holiday CD, "A Very Merry Golden Records Christmas," features Ed Asner, Malin Akerman, Wallace Shawn, Missi Pyle, John O'Hurley, Cheryl Hines, Dermot Mulroney, Busy Phillipps, and Didi Conn! 
A Very Merry Golden Records Christmas  marks the perfect follow-up to Golden Records: The Magic Continues Celebrity Series, Vol. 1. The album is packed with 20 classic songs and stories that combine the beautifully orchestrated original recordings with the talent of today’s biggest and brightest stars. Children and parents alike will love Golden renditions of "Twas The Night Before Christmas," "A Christmas Carol," "Frosty The Snowman," "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer," "Winter Wonderland," and many more traditional holiday classics. I was given the chance to review this CD and I really enjoyed it. Of course, I can (and do) listen to Christmas music all year. I have listened to this CD several times and always end up replaying Dermot Mulroney's song before I can move forward. I'd recommend this CD for that reason only, but considering the other songs are festive and very enjoyable, I can recommend the entire CD. It actually exceeded my expectations. I have so many Christmas CDs and I have been disappointed by others that feature actors. Well, I wouldn't describe this CD as soulful, but it will put you in the Christmas spirit and you'll find yourself humming or singing along before you know it! A Very Merry Golden Records Christmas, is the fifth of an entire series recapturing the values, quality, and timeless innocence of Golden Records. Hear for yourself with the exclusive celebrity teaser below!
