    Eddy Arnold:The Complete RCA Victor Christmas Recordings CD

    “Music for the holiday – sung with taste and authority!” That’s how RCA Victor described the 1962 release Christmas with Eddy Arnold, the superstar entertainer’s first holiday album. Whether the style was country or pop, Eddy Arnold always sang with taste and authority – as well as tremendous warmth and a big heart. Between 1945 and 2008, “The Tennessee Plowboy” notched 147 U.S. chart hits, sold over 85 million records, and earned inductions into the Country Music Hall of Fame and The Grand Ole Opry. The music of Christmas was near and dear to Arnold’s heart, and between 1949 and 1967, he recorded two dozen holiday favorites for the RCA Victor label. Now, every one of those seasonal sides has been collected by Real Gone Music and Second Disc Records on The Complete RCA Victor Christmas Recordings, including the complete Christmas with Eddy Arnold album produced by Chet Atkins and featuring Nashville’s finest musicians. This first-ever compendium of Eddy Arnold’s yuletide music boasts his own “C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S” and “Will Santy Come to Shanty Town,” along with Boudleaux Bryant’s “Christmas Can’t Be Far Away” and family favorites such as “Up on the Housetop,” “Winter Wonderland,” “White Christmas” and “Jingle Bell Rock” – all rendered in the timeless, smooth Arnold style. Rare, never-before-on-CD singles and special holiday greetings from Eddy himself round out this definitive collection with new liner notes from The Second Disc’s Joe Marchese and rare photographs from the Sony vaults. Every track has been newly remastered by Maria Triana at Sony’s Battery Studios. The perfect companion to Real Gone’s Eddy Arnold releases The Complete #1 Hits and Each Road I Take: The Lee Hazlewood and Chet Atkins Sessions 1970, The Complete RCA Victor Christmas Recordings is one high-spirited stocking stuffer you won’t want to miss.
