Christmas 2005

TV Special Christmas




We had talked about a 'TV Specials' CD in 2004 but we didn't have enough of the soundtracks that I wanted to get in order to put it together properly. In 2005 all of those pieces came together and we thought it would be nice to take a walk down memory lane with those shows from the mid 60's to the mid 70's timeframe. We really enjoyed putting this CD together. Another note is that Santa & Santa Jr. are both on the CD cover with Drake.

Once again I used the raised lettering look. It looked better this year because the font was bigger. I also used three different colors for the font on the back cover. The colors were chosen to match some of the images that were used. I did have to print the back cover a little light in order for it to be easily read. I guess that's my only issue I had with the artwork this year. This is also the first year that we used a label on the CD. Most of them had red lettering, however some were printed with blue lettering.

This year we didn't have to really select a track order. The songs were put in order based on the year of release of the TV Special. I did have to rip some of the songs from the DVD's though because not all of the TV Specials were put onto a soundtrack CD.

After last years problems with the 'thick' photo paper, I went back to the 'thin' kind. Everything went a lot smoother this year. We used the Silver Memorex 700 MB CDs this year (I think we also used some Maxell discs too) and the black tray liner jewel cases. This year we incorporated a label for the CD. It was easy to work with and made the CD look better.

Drake sings, 'I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus'.

Drake sings, 'A Caroling We Go'. Later in the track, at the 1:07 mark, Drake says, 'I love you guys'.

This is a picture of a fleece blanket that Angie made. I thought it would make a great CD image.
