Music Minute: Here Comes Christmas!

Here Comes Christmas! is a new album from Greg Page, the original Yellow Wiggle of children's entertainment phenomenon The Wiggles! The songs on the album, released on the Yellow Entertainment label, contain familiar favorites and original songs, including a few "just for kids" tracks.

I got a chance to review this album, his first children's album since his departure from The Wiggles. He has a rich baritone voice, so it's easy to listen to. Some of the songs have the same great orchestral sound as Bing Crosby and Perry Como, a very traditional-sounding Christmas setting that evokes nostalgia from adults.

Greg Page has long been at the top end of children's entertainment and is respectfully regarded as one of the genre's leading performers.  While studying Early Childhood Education at Sydney's Macquarie University, he teamed up with fellow students Anthony Field and Murray Cook in 1991 to form what would become one of the world's most successful children's entertainment brands, The Wiggles.

Here Comes Christmas! will be available from iTunes and the Butterscotch TV website, HERE.  Greg Page's Butterscotch's Playground DVD is also available from iTunes and the Butterscotch TV website.
