No matter if it's a big après ski party or a cozy evening by the stove in your living room, here's the soundtrack that's suitable for every occasion!

Bear Family Records® presents 31 songs from five decades, created between 1939 and 1973, which deal with the chilly season.

From snowstorms, skiing and snowmen to the nordic aurora: these are the themes of winter - and the music is just as varied: from easy entertainment and pop to country music, and from blues to jazz, doo-wop and rock 'n' roll!

Well-known artists like the Kingston Trio, Marty Robbins, Faron Young, Hank Snow, Georgia Gibbs or the great Hank Williams meet with unknown colleagues here.

Several recordings appear for the first time on CD, such as both sides of an extremely rare 78 record by the British Frederic Curzon Orchestra, which also provides the title track for this CD!

Two rare recordings come from the German-speaking countries: a vocal tune by Austrian alpine skiing world champion and Olympic champion Toni Sailer and an instrumental by the Erhard Bauschke Orchestra.

In addition to unadulterated country music, which can be enjoyed particularly well by the open fireplace, western swing comes into the warm parlor with Tex Williams, Spade Cooley and Cliff Bruner.

A certain dose of rock 'n' roll is included to warm up the frozen limbs with artists like The Cheers, The Del Vikings, Lonnie Dee and The Belmonts!

The full-color booklet includes rare photos and memorabilia, as well as liner notes for each track, written by Marc Mittelacher.
