Mannheim Steamroller releases "A Fresh Aire Christmas" 1988
It was a little early for Christmas but Mannheim Steamroller released their second Christmas album and tenth studio album, A Fresh Aire Christmas on August 15, 1988. It's one of the top selling Christmas albums of all time, surpassing its predecessor, released 4 years before. Personally, it's one of my favorite albums ever, Christmas or not. I bought it during an incredibly depressed period in my life and listening to it reminds me of that sad time, but it also helps bring me back up and celebrate the best time of the year.
I sang Mannheim Steamroller's arrangement of Veni Veni with the Turtle Creek Chorale back in Dallas. It's stunning!
