CD Reviews

I almost died from Shock when I saw this

"Several years ago, my brother got a computer with a CD burner on it. I asked him if it was possible to burn albums onto CDs. Well, after trial and error, we were able to hook up a phonograph to this high-tech computer. The reason I wanted to try it: So I could get Bert Kaempfert's Christmas Wonderland on CD. At the time, it was unavailable.I don't know what it is about this album that made it a staple in so many homes in the 1960s and 1970s. I remember my late father telling me he thought it was because it was one of the first commercially-successful Christmas albums that could be played anywhere because it didn't have vocals. Seems like a good deduction to me.I can NOT believe how happy I am to have a REAL copy of this album in my collection now. My fear was my children would never hear the classic renditions of Mr. Kaempfert. Now I can sit back and relax."
The best christmas album EVER!

"It's truly not Christmas without Bert Kaempfert. My parents had this album in the 60's, I bought it in the seventies and was limping along with a tape of the album until this year, when (horrors!) it vanished in a move. I am so thrilled to find it on CD - so happy I ordered 2! Highly recommended."
What a Joyful Seasonal Collection!

"You can tell as soon as you see the cover of this CD that this is going to be something different. The snow-laden tree looks like a person with a scarf around his neck. Big deal, huh? In this case, yes. Once you listen to these finely arranged and performed tunes, you can see why this is one of the finest Christmas collections to add to your collection.
Bert's trademark sounds have never been utilized so brilliantly as in this collection. Along with his delightful treatment of such standards as "Winter Wonderland," "White Christmas" and even the tiresome "Little Drummer Boy," you get the bonus of some outstanding Kaempfert originals including the title track and the absolutely infectious "Jingo Jango."
I have always loved this collection; I purchased it on vinyl on its first release way way back; and was overjoyed when it was finally made available in CD. In fact, thank the Lord for Kaempfert's library of outstanding music being out there for us to enjoy on CD.
This is a great instrumental Christmas gift to yourself!"
