Christmas Album
A New Star Shining

From the desk of Orleans co-founder John Hall: This Christmas collection, our first and only, is the answer to those questions. The material comes from a various sources, most written internally but not all. Some had previously-recorded lives elsewhere and made the cut unaltered. Some had previous starts but underwent major revisions and upgrades. Some were cut from scratch. Some are purely secular, while others center around the Christmas Story. The title cut, ‘New Star Shining’ was recorded in 1994 for a ‘Woodstock Holidays’ CD released only in Japan.
