Just saw on Amazon that a newly remastered CD of Jim's Christmas album is available for pre-order. The CD includes 2 bonus tracks, "Snowflake" and "Scarlet Ribbons". Although not exactly Christmas recordings, I think these two songs will blend nicely with the original Christmas recordings, and even better if "Scarlet Ribbons" is the beautiful overdubbed version from the Voicemasters release. Larry, do you happen to know if it is? The CD will include new liner notes as well. I'm hoping it will also include all the original album cover art, including the original back cover of the LP, which featured great liner notes and a really nice picture of Jim that I've never seen reproduced anywhere else. The CD version that has been available for many years was very much like a budget release with an ugly green border on surrounding the original front cover of the LP and nothing on the back except a simple listing of the tracks. It also included no liner notes inside or booklet. This new CD version will be released on November 8th on the Real Gone label...
