Another Real Gone Music/The Second Disc Records Christmas Find

AVAILABLE NOVEMBER 3, 2017 PRE-ORDER NOW

The Ames Brothers: There'll Always Be a Christmas--60th Anniversary Deluxe Mono Edition. CD

On their 1957 album of the same name, The Ames Brothers proclaimed in song, “There’ll Always Be a Christmas” – and as it turns out, Ed, Vic, Gene, and Joe Ames had created a joyful Christmas album for all time. Now, their classic holiday perennial is coming to CD in its original mono mix for the very first time on Real Gone Music and Second Disc Records’ There’ll Always Be a Christmas: 60th Anniversary Deluxe Mono Edition. Between 1948 and 1960, The Ames Brothers notched a remarkable fifty entries on the Billboard charts, including three Number Ones and a further six Top Ten hits, and became one of America’s most beloved singing groups. Their distinctive sound – consisting of four bass-baritones and no tenor voices – can be heard at its most robust on There’ll Always Be a Christmas. Supported by the lush orchestra of Sid Ramin, the quartet delivered fresh renditions of both upbeat Christmas standards like “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” and “Silver Bells” and sacred songs such as “What Child is This?” and “O Holy Night.” This 60th anniversary reissue adds two bonus tracks to further showcase the enormous versatility of the group. “I Got a Cold for Christmas” is a comic novelty in the tradition of The Ames Brothers’ favorites like “The Naughty Lady of Shady Lane,” while “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm” is a swinging romp through Irving Berlin’s wintry tune. All 14 songs have been newly remastered by Maria Triana at Sony’s Battery Studios in their original, new-to-CD mono mixes, while the liner notes by The Second Disc’s Joe Marchese are based on a brand-new interview with the only surviving member of the group, stage and screen legend Ed Ames. Filled with beautiful harmonies and rich arrangements of some of the greatest Christmas songs of all time, There’ll Always Be a Christmas is a heartwarming and nostalgic treat you’ll want to share with your family, and generations to come.
