• Various Artists - Home for the Holidays - Merry Christmas

PERRY COMO, PATTI PAGE, and EDDIE FISHER sold more records during the 1950s than anyone! Here they sing some great and often neglected Christmas songs. Check out the rare Christmas cover photo of the three - the only picture taken of the superstars together!

The entire Christmas album of THE WEAVERS - one of the greatest of all folk groups - is included.

HUGO WINTERHALTER scored the earliest hits of 'Blue Christmas' and 'Blue December.' Both are included here together with six other festive holiday tracks.

ETHEL SMITH was one of America's most popular organists. Nine joyful and reverent Christmas tracks are featured

Interspersed throughout this 2-CD set are many rare tracks by BROOK BENTON, DINAH WASHINGTON, JERRY VALE, ANITA BRYANT, THE NORMAN LUBOFF CHOIR, JILL COREY, GEORGE BEVERLY SHEA, THE PINETOPPERS, RED FOLEY, DINAH SHORE, WINIFRED ATWELL, ART LUND, CLARK DENNIS, and other great stars.

HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS and SNOWBOUND FOR CHRISTMAS are the follow-up collections to Jasmine's 2013 highly-successful THE SOUNDS OF CHRISTMAS.
