Well the Christmas album is out now, if you haven't got it yet you can download it for free from www.littlemonsterstudio.co.nz/avlc.html or you can purchase it from good record stores in NZ. So far we've had 2200 downloads from all over the world. Thanks to those who've been sharing the link around so far. If you haven't yet we'd really appreciate it if you wanted to. I just want to give a Christmas present to as many people as possible.
Today I was reading the text from Phil Spector on the back of his Christmas record (and even though I am sure he would probably hate my christmas album/me) I thought I'd post an excerpt it here because it sums up some of my feelings towards and behind "A Very Little Christmas"
"...This album was produced solely for you and only with you in mind. It is an endeavor to epitomize the great young stars in the recording field, singing some of the greatest music ever written. It comes from me to you with the sincere wish that you understand and appreciate this endeavor into something new and different for Christmas. I am very proud of my artists at this moment and very grateful for having the opportunity to express myself as I have been able to do in this album. I, along with The Crystals, The Ronettes, Darlene Love, and Bob B. Soxx and The Blue Jeans, hope that you enjoy and love this album as much as we enjoyed making it for you and wish you the Merriest of Christmases and the Happiest of New Years and we thank you so much for letting us spend Christmas with you.
Phil Spector, Producer "
