Audio Fidelity To Release Trans-Siberian Orchestra's “The Christmas Attic” On 2-LP Set!


Christmas arrives early this year with the release of Trans-Siberian Orchestra's  rock opera “The Christmas Attic” on 2-LP Set by Marshall Blonstein's Audio Fidelity. Originally released in 1998, “The Christmas Attic” is the second installment of Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Christmas Trilogy. The story begins On Christmas Eve,  when a young girl's curiosity leads her to a night of mischief and magic when she decides to sneak up into the attic of her parents' home while she should be asleep.  This album contains a mix of vocal and instrumental songs. The track “Christmas Canon,” one of the TSO's most well-known songs, is a variation of Pachelbel's famous Canon in D Major, with lyrics and new music added as well as Boughs of Holly and a soulful rendition of Music Box Blues.

“The Christmas Attic” is being made available on vinyl for the first time in a 2-LP set. The brilliantly remastered records are packaged in a seasonal gatefold jacket that includes a colorful 12-page booklet filled with the tale of The Christmas Attic as well as the lyrics to all the songs. 

When founder and producer Paul O'Neill first conceived Trans-Siberian Orchestra, his goal was as straightforward as it was ambitious: “...create a progressive rock band that would push the boundaries further than any group before, following in the footsteps of Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Pink Floyd, the Who...but take it way, way further.”

With more than 9 million albums sold TSO has inspired generations of fans to rediscover the multi-dimensional art form of the rock opera. They've become one of the world's top acts and listed in Billboard magazine as one of the top touring artists of the past decade. Their $20 million-plus stage production has played to over 11 million people in 80+ cities across the globe. TSO will once again be touring during the 2014 and 2015 holiday season with “The Christmas Attic” show. Last year they welcomed-in the New Year in front of over one million German fans in a nationally televised show live from the Brandenberg Gate.
