I'm remembering Matt Monro and his family today. I listened to two of my favourite CD compilations:

Through the Years

The Very Best of Matt Monro

I was impressed that it reached #1 in the UK. No impact in the US at all. It's still never played in the stores and on the non-stop Christmas music radio stations. This bothers me, but the song is all my own. So I play it on a warm December day and blast it out my windows!

I first heard the crew sing that version on a cruise ship and loved it immediately. So then I found out Boney M had the hit version, and I bought their Christmas CD.

Now I'm listening to Paul Revere and Mark Lindsay singing Christmas carols. They are gorgeous.
