The Original: Gene Autry Sings Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer & Other Christmas Favorites

September 26, 2006

Varèse Sarabande Records

Originally released in 1957, this fondly remembered Gene Autry album features "America's Favorite Singing Cowboy" performing his classic Christmas songs. Gene's spoken introductions to his holiday hits make this unique Christmas album a very personal listening experience. The LP has been out of print for decades, and fans could only get these specific recordings by Gene if they were lucky enough to find an LP at a flea market or rare-records store. Now through the wonder of digital restoration you can relive those cherished Christmas memories with this re-issue CD.
