I found the Little Christmas Tree!

"Like everyone else, this album was a treasure from mine and my younger sister's childhood. I can remember how she would cry and cry every time we listened to Red Skelton's Little Christmas Tree! It's one of my sister's strongest Christmas memories. I started searching other sites before I found it here on Amazon and although the CD doesn't offer Mr. Skelton's narration, it can be downloaded from: www.albertarose.org/Music/christmas/stories/ChrisStories.htm I downloaded using Windows Media Player and burned it onto a CD. I sent my sister a copy. This Christmas recording just wouldn't have been the same without TLCT, as that is the one thing we all seem to remember most. Hope this helps those still yearning for TLCT!"
Good album, Fair cd!

"I'm 32 years old and like many of the other reviewers I had this album when growing up and it is one of my favorite holiday albums. I was greatly pleased to find that it has been reissued in cd form. Like the other reviewers I am disappointed that they did not include Red Skelton's THE LITTLEST CHRISTMAS TREE (TLCT).
I wonder why TLCT was removed from this album? I've heard that it may have to do with difficulties from the Red Skelton estate. For those who have heard the original album and remember TLCT will recall that the Christmas tree learned the meaning of Christmas once Santa described how he he flew into an Iron Curtain and found that parts of the world did not celebrate the holidays or practice the act of selfless giving. Obviously this story concerned the Cold War. I wonder if the children of today could even relate to this story as we did?
I have purchased this cd and appreciate the crisp clear songs. My album is full of pops and hisses. I love all the songs. C.H.R.I.S.T.M.A.S. by Rosemary Cloony is one of my favorites. For those looking to find a copy of the TLCT they may want to check out some of Red Skelton's old radio programs. TLCT is actually a 30 minute radio program from which part of the story was taken for the original album. The original version is very funny and for those who are missing it from this cd may want to look into obtaining a copy of that radio program. Feel free to e-mail me if you want to learn where you can obtain a copy.
Thanks to technology I have been able to reproduce the original album. I copied the songs from the cd I purchased and then, using a software program, copied TLCT to my computer. I was able to clean it up and remove some of the pops and hisses. I then produced my very own cd recreation of the original album.
This is a very good album. If you had the album as a kid it will no doubt bring back fond memories. If you have kids, as I do, they will no doubt enjoy this album as well."
Missing Red Skeltons Littlest Christmas Tree!

"Growing up in Hawaii this was our favorite family Christmas album, since we didn't get snow in our back yard, we could only listen to this album and dream about it. We too have been looking for it for years as our copy got lost in the shuffle. My sister finally found the orriginal record at a Thrift store on the mainland. Once I had the exact name I was so happy to find it on CD. HOWEVER, VERY DISAPPOINTED that Red Skeltons Littlest Christmas tree was left off. I am so happy we have a copy of the orriginal and have The Littlest Christmas Tree on a tape now."
