Bobby Vinton: A Very Merry Christmas—The Complete Epic Christmas Collection. CD

When The Beatles hit the top of the charts for the first time in 1964 with “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” do you know what single they displaced? Why, Bobby Vinton’s “There! I’ve Said It Again!” But, while the British Invasion spelled the end of chart appearances for just about every pop crooner of Bobby’s ilk, “The Polish Prince” just kept rolling along, racking up a total of 49 hits all the way through 1981, including such Top Ten smashes as “Mr. Lonely,” “Please Love Me Forever,” and “My Melody of Love.” Bobby was also a force on the Christmas charts, first with his 1963 EP Songs of Christmas and then with his 1964 full-length LP A Very Merry Christmas, both of which we have included in our new Real Gone release A Very Merry Christmas—The Complete Epic Collection, which also features the 1970 single “Christmas Eve in My Home Town,” two rare songs taken from various artists holiday packages released by Epic, and an unreleased track! Bobby offers an appealing mix of both traditional holiday favorites and contemporary ‘60s pop songs of the season, including Bobby’s Top Ten Christmas chart single of “Dearest Santa” paired with Burt Bacharach and Hal David’s “The Bell That Couldn’t Jingle.” Joe Marchese pens the liner notes, and we’ve included some nice shots of the ever photogenic Mr. Vinton. Remastered by Maria Triana at Sony’s Battery Studios—a very merry Real Gone release indeed!
