Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on December 5, 2016
I'm a huge fan of this Christmas album and the special that went along with it back in the day. I was happy to see that the album was finally being released on vinyl after all these years. I just received it today and I was not at all pleased with the fact that is not the original tracklisting. Gone are Silent Night and The Christmas Song from the original album. Hard Candy Christmas from The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas is now a track on this updated album, also the songs are not in the order they were on the original album. I realize that newer bargain CD's have this exact tracklisting but when this was advertised as "newly remastered for vinyl" I really thought that meant the original listing of songs from the original album. The White Vinyl is very gorgeous and I love watching it spin. The slower songs do have quite a bit of noise though, especially 'Once Upon a Christmas". Luckily, I do have the original CD that came out many years ago with the original tracklisting, and even though that sound quality is kind of low it's better than nothing. I will play this album because I love Christmas music and I love this album. It's one of my very favorite Christmas recordings ever, if not my favorite of all time. I am just not happy with the tracklisting and sound quality overall. It does have a gatefold cover, the original did not. The sleeve from the original is now inside the gatefold when unfolded with the pictures and lyrics and the sleeve holding the white vinyl is just clear but sturdy.
