All Sonny James (born James Hugh Loden in Hacklesburg, Alabama on May 1, 1929) did was record 72 Country hit singles from 1953 to 1983, primarily for Capitol and Columbia (he had a few near the end of that string with Monument and Dimension), including 22 # 1 hits, and 53 in total in the Top 20 - many of which also crossed over to the Billboard Pop charts. At one point, from 1967 to 1971, he had 16 # 1 Country hits in succession! His late 1956/early 1957 smash Young Love reached # 1 on both the C&W and Pop charts, as well as # 3 R&B - not something done often by a pure Country artist. His albums also sold in the millions.

For those achievements, Sonny received a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame in 1971, and in 1987 was inducted into the Alabama Music Hall Of Fame, some 19 years before he was similarly honoured by the Country Music Hall Of Fame in 2006. Three years after that, he was inducted into the Hit Parade Hall Of Fame.

How nice it was to see someone finally get off their rear-ends and give us this 1966 Capitol Records Christmas album in re-mastered mp.3 format. When it came out as Capitol 2589, My Christmas Dream, containing several sides you don't get to hear very often during the holidays, and involving a children's chorus, made it to # 73 on Billboard's Christmas charts, containing the tracks you see above.

Out of that album emerged the single Barefoot Santa Claus which, billed as Sonny James (The Southern Gentleman), reached # 9 on the Christmas charts on Capitol 5733 b/w My Christmas Dream - both impossible to find in a CD compilation - and in 1968 it charted again at # 12.

Every Christmas for some years all my dad would talk about is finding the song "Barefoot Santa Claus'. It was one of his favorites and radio NEVER plays it at Christmas. AFter searching and searching I finally gave into the MP3 version. My dad was so excited when i played it for him. So gald i ordered it. The CD is wonderful.

My family and myself have been searching for this album for years. We grew up with the vinyl and there is one song called the Christmas letter that holds great sentimental value. This is a great album and Sonny James voice is so soothing, we are so glad we can listen and reminisce once again.
