1-CD with 24-page booklet, 26 tracks. Total playing time approx. 67 minutes.

The follow-up to our very successful 2017 Christmas CD with country music, honky tonk and hillbilly boogie: 'Christmas On The Countryside' (BCD17508).

26 songs selected by Nico Feuerbach and commented with great expertise and profound humour by Roland Heinrich.

Great compilation of traditional country music, western swing and hillbilly.

A well-balanced blend of well-known bigger names and rather unknown but nevertheless great musicians.

Three tracks are released here on CD for the first time!

Bear Family also brings good cheer and will make your Christmas especially "merry" with an particularly compiled seasonal country CD. Bear Family's little sleigh stopper is not your average middle-of-the road cash in: Bear Family's 'Christmas On The Range' brings you vintage country music, western swing, and hillbilly from the 1940s and '50s. The stories are heartfelt and funny with just the right dose of Christmas corniness. The CD showcases well-known artists like Bill Monroe and Kitty Wells alongside obscurer colleagues such as Billy Briggs and Ray Salter & the Twin City Playboys. Also, three of the tracks included have never been available on CD.

This great compilation helps you burn the extra cookie with hot dance tunes like The North Pole Boogie and the all-time great We Wanna See Santa Do the Mambo by Terry Fell. Bob Wills is presented in a pensive and patriotic mood with his World War II classic Empty Chair at the Christmas Table, whereas Brenda Lee roars determined that she is going to lasso Santa Claus! If you party too hard around Mardi Gras you might end up with a New Baby for Christmas - George Jones will let you in on the whole story. Traditional country music always loved to exploit special occasions by tackling any imaginable topic, no matter how trivial or exotic. This CD brings you great novelties, great tear jerkers, and great dance music. It also brings great joy! Season's Greetings everybody!
