Among My Favorite Christmas Songs
"Among My Favorite Christmas Songs" is a collection of popular, instrumental, public domain Christmas songs done in Richard's style of easy listening, relaxing music. Richard uses a mix of piano keyboard with a touch of strings in the background. Five of these songs are listed as "variations", with interesting changes in the style and cord progressions. Taken from the inside cover: "The front cover is a photo of Josie, our son Rick's dog. Josie is 17 years old and at this writing is in ill health. Josie has helped to greet many visitors in Rick's store, Reflections of Fishtown; Leland, Michigan." Richard plays many engagements including dinner parties, wedding reception dinners and political events. Two additional CDs containing songs written by Richard are also listed with CdBaby. "His Own" and "Wine With Me" each provide an hour of easy listening, relaxing music. "His Own" contains twelve songs ranging from easy listening to light blues and jazz. "Wine With Me" is targeted to wineries and art galleries and all of the songs are named after wine related themes. These songs also follow the relaxing style of Richard L. Lahmann.
