Disco Noel

They've made Chrismas albums about everything else -- why not Disco?

Leave it to the folks at Pickwick Records to come up with this one -- classic Christmas carols set to a disco beat. Now, the next time you find yourself traveling through time to the 70's, you won't have to choose between Disco dancing and listening to your favorite Christmas songs -- you can have the best of both worlds with Disco Noel!

Hey Charles, there was a rap christmas album.. Gangsta? Doubtful, but I used to see it in Revco a lot around the holidays. Try searching for "X Crew" (11-30-1999)

Shawn (shawnj@myself.com) says:
Anyone every found this? I've looked for "Switched on Christmas" and Rainbow records (Disco King said it was put out on that label) but with no luck. I'd even buy a used copy or rent it from someone. Thanks! (11-28-1999)

Charles Christopher (riphertoshreds@yahoo.com) says:
For years I used to joke to my friends that I had an album called "All the hits for your Disco Christmas." Oh how we laughed at that - until one day I found THIS album at the Salvation Army for a quarter in pristine playable condition. If this kind of thing REALLY used to happen in the disco era, no wonder people started saying it sucked. Now I just hope my joke about also having "All the hits for yo Gangsta Rap Christmas" doesn't come true........ (10-14-1999)

I missed out on the Parakeet Training record but I do have a copy of "Disco Noel" I got when a neighbor of mine (who was GM of a top 40 radio station in the 70's) was pitching all of his old LP's (we're talkin' promos, colored vinyl, posters, etc.!) in favor of CD's. I offered to do away with the evil black 12" things for him and netted a copy of that Neat-O disco album! (It goes great with another great Pikwick release of the same vintage -- "Sounds Like the Bee Gees" (as performed by the Neon Lights) Look for it. Oh, I noticed the $.10 sticker on the cover. Considering I got mine for free, thanks for affirming that SOMEBODY out there is willing to give up a hard-earned dime to hear this s#/t! (07-12-1999)

Sir Droopy Drawers says:
NO, NO, WE DON'T WANT THIS ALBUM!!!! WE NEVER EVEN ASKED FOR IT!!! IF THIS IS WHAT CHRISTMAS HAS COME TO, I WILL BECOME A HERMIT MONK AND LIVE ON GILLIGAN'S ISLAND AND MAKE MARY ANN AND GINGER MY LOVE SLAVES.....please excuse me, my asylum awaits for me...... (12-20-1998)

Disco King says:
You wanted it, you got it. The entire 'Disco Noel' album, plus another album's worth of disco carols - 21 tracks in all - has been released on CD on the Australian budget label Rainbow. It's called 'Rainbow Presents... Switched on Christmas'. I'd recognise that Jingle Bells sample anywhere... I tell ya, it's an absolute classic! (12-02-1998)

Sylvia (doug06@worldnet.att.net) says:
We had this on tape. We loved it! We've been looking for it on CD. Any one know where we can get it. (11-25-1998)

Karl (abbavan@series2000.com) says:
I bought this LP in the days at Radio Shack, they were playing it throught the outdoor speakers. It really is very listenable (10-01-1998)

Bob (april_balint@hotmail.com) says:
april is my sister. YOU GUYS ARE JERKS, @$$HOLE$, AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN, the site is nice though (06-02-1998)

Ed Kaz! (EdK@nytv.com) says:
As the cover aptly depicts, it took a lot of BALLS for Pickwick to release this vinyl travesty. Has anyone ever seen "Sounds of the Woodstock Generation", ALSO from Pickwick? It's a stone hoot, replete with those Woodstock mainstays "Rose Garden" and "Knock Three Times." I have to lie down now... (05-01-1998)

BuD UglLy (bud@wwwvoice.com) says:
Okay, but I'm nit paying a whole dime foe it. (04-21-1998)

lola says:
in case you didn't know, droopy ass, the previous message was for you! (03-31-1998)

lola says:
enough with your anal comments... get off the net you moron. (03-30-1998)

Sir Droopy Drawers says:
(Yes it is me again!) Any album that has a woman holding balls, (christmas or otherwise) on the cover, has to be in my collection. Thank goodness, she wasn't holding the 'ole "yule log". Please excuse me, my asylum awaits for me. Fa-La-La-La,La-La-La! (03-23-1998)

Sir Droopy Drawers says:
I thought Religious Prosecution went out years ago. This should not happen to a good Christian, (like myself). This is taking "Freedom of Religion" a little to far! Please excuse me, my asylum awaits for me. (03-22-1998)

reddred says:
Dont overlook the classic "Tis the Night to Disco", by the Disco Belles. Pretty much the same songs, but a much better cover that features a leggy blonde stradling a giant candy cane. absolutely great. -reddred (03-06-1998)

Zach (zach.miller@bbs.bbsworld.com) says:
2 Cool. Please tell me where I might find this fine seasonal album. (12-27-1997)

William Swaney says:
I have been searching for years!!!! Finally , something that sounds like i remember it. It reminds of "Dear santa lets disco" by "Snowflake". Please!! Where can i find either of these?? (12-21-1997)

PUD (slireubles@globalserve.net) says:
Where do I find this gem???????????????? Got a moldy LP to tape version and we are looking for a CD version!!!!! (12-14-1997)

Nikki says:
Just wanted to say "Thank You!". You saved my final. I needed a sound file for my interactive Christmas card in Director class.I don't have any wave files of my own, so "surfing" was my only option.There,(like a gift)was your "Disco Noel" ......The TRUE spirit of the Season.............. (12-06-1997)
