Tony Bennett "The Christmas Album" LP
The new edition of Snowfall: The Tony Bennett Christmas Album includes a restoration of the original album art by illustrator Bob Peak and a vinyl sleeve featuring original holiday paintings by Tony Bennett. The album has been remixed and sonically enhanced for this 2021 pressing by producer/sound engineer (and Tony’s son) Dae Bennett, winner of seven Grammy Awards and a Primetime Emmy.
Released on October 6, 1968 on Columbia Records, Snowfall: The Tony Bennett Christmas Album was Tony’s first holiday album. Originally produced by Jack Gold, Snowfall showcases ten swinging performances of perennial holiday classics as interpreted by the master pop vocalist, accompanied by a full orchestra conducted by Robert Farnon, the album’s musical arranger. Tony and Farnon recorded the album in two historic sessions, laying down six performances at Columbia’s 30th Street Studios in New York and four tracks at CTS Bayswater in London.
