I’m pretty excited about Sunday Spin at Benetti’s Coffee Experience this weekend, as my father-in-law, Jim Gutwein, has chosen all the music. Katy’s parents are in town for Thanksgiving, and I asked Jim to share some records before they leave. (Most of the records are culled from his personal collection, and Jim is proud to gloat that all are original pressings thereof.) He has decided to play Christmas music Sunday evening, so grab a cup of coffee or hot chocolate and wind down from the hectic holiday weekend, looking forward to the Christmas season.
- Nat King Cole Trio – “The Christmas Song” (original 45 from 1946, not the version made popular in the the early 1960s)
- Bing Crosby – excerpt of a radio broadcast from A Christmas Sing with Bing (1956)
- Joan Baez – side 1 of Noel (1966)
- The Ramsey Lewis Trio – Sound of Christmas (1961)
- Tony Bennett – Snowfall: The Tony Bennett Christmas Album (1968)
- The Miracles – side 2 of The Season for Miracles (1970)
- The Temptations – side 1 of The Temptations Christmas Card (1970)
- Various Artists – side 2 of A Christmas Gift for You (1963)

We’ll augment your own research on these record with handout Sunday evening. See you there from 6:00-9:00.
