(Oscars X-mas Carols Vol. 3) are basically nonexistent. Far from getting discouraged, he starts up an unusual project: to ask these bands, just known by a few and which he loves so much, to record their own Christmas tracks.
Through the years I've become a massive collector of every genre of Christmas songs. In the s I worked for Vinyl, a Dutch monthly magazine. A lot of music at that time was released on cassettes. A significant number of cassettes were sent to Vinyl, from both the Netherlands and abroad, so many in fact that I began writing a separate column, Dolby, to discuss them.
For some years, my Dolby page was a meeting place for fans of cassette music. In addition to Christmas music, I was also a big fan of experimental sounds, and I soon noticed that very little electronic Christmas music was being produced. That's when I got the idea of creating a cassette myself, featuring adventurous and original Christmas numbers. I was in contact with a lot of musicians because of my work at Vinyl, and I invited a large number of them to record a holiday number especially for my Christmas cassette.
The production and distribution were in the hands of Ed and Ignit from the Ding Dong label. I never received any payment or sales figures from Ding Dong, so I have no idea how many copies of that first edition were sold.
That's one of the reasons why in I decided to take on the distribution myself. Plus, I'd just gotten hold of a rubber stamp that was suitable for stamping serial numbers. That gave me the idea of producing a limited-edition, numbered cassette. My friend Theo Kamphuis not only took the picture, he also had to develop it times, because that was the edition's print run.
We spent two evenings assembling the packages, each containing a framed photograph plus a cassette. The artistic-looking result disguised the fact that the project was a financial catastrophe. I barely recouped half of the guilders in production costs. I had well and truly learned my lesson and decided to stop producing cassettes. However, in I started to get the itch again, so I invited a large group of international and Dutch artists to send me numbers for my third Christmas cassette.
This time, to cut costs, I did everything except the cover design on my own. The cover was mimeographed, and I reproduced the cassettes myself.
In Various - Is That You Santa Claus? (Oscars X-mas Carols Vol. 3) got a full-time job and had little time for my Christmas label. Subsequently, cassettes lost more and more ground to the encroaching CD format. A fourth cassette would therefore never materialize!
The music, however, was much less experimental than on the cassettes. In this, they were unfortunately hindered by the limited playing time available on a long-playing record. Of the General Public - Tenderness tracks on this LP, seven come from the Netherlands.
I've remained in contact with many of the original Butterfly High - The Next Move - The Art Of Life and was able to track down the rest on Facebook.
