Legacy's Classic Christmas Album Series Rings In The Holidays With New Collections By John Denver, Kenny G, Willie Nelson, Elvis Presley, And Luther Vandross


New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Legacy Recordings) The Classic Christmas Album series, launched in 2011 with THE CLASSIC CHRISTMAS ALBUM by Tony Bennett, rings in the holiday season with new editions by John Denver, Kenny G, Willie Nelson, Elvis Presley, and Luther Vandross. The titles will be available everywhere October 2nd through Legacy Recordings, a division of SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT.

Each new collection gathers 14 or more remastered tracks spanning the career of each artist, all of whom recorded multiple holiday albums through the years, as well as occasional Christmas tunes on other albums.

THE CLASSIC CHRISTMAS ALBUM by Kenny G, for example, presents selections from his five holiday releases: Miracles: The Holiday Album (Arista, 1994), Faith: A Holiday Album (Arista, 1999), Wishes: A Holiday Album (Arista, 2002), the Greatest Holiday Classics (Arista, 2005), and The Holiday Collection (Sony 2006).

With many of their holiday albums either out-of-print, or never issued on CD, or highly collectible rarities, each new title in the Classic Christmas Album series is a welcome cross-section of those hard-to-find classics. Each Classic Christmas Album gathers a career's worth of precious memories, often spanning decades, while creating new memories at the same time.
