Album Notes
About A Merry Little Christmas by Barry Coates & Rich Eames

Rich Eames is one of my oldest friends and we’ve been playing music together for almost three decades now. He is such a great piano player, buddy and just an incredible musician. We were both working with The Pointer Sisters when I first had the idea to make a christmas record. I guess it was the mid 80’s when we started recording some of these songs but we never finished so each year or so, we added a few more. The record was never released but instead became part of our own family christmas collection and friends that heard it always wanted more copies. So finally after all these years it’s here on CDBaby for you and your family to enjoy . Thanks for listening and God Bless.


All these songs have a special place in my heart. “The First Noel” was a song I won a talent contest with playing guitar in grammar school. Our version of “Silent Night” was played over the phone to Chet Atkins by a friend who loved the song and wanted Chet to hear it. Chet’s remark was “that sounds like me”. “Let it Snow” was a close friend’s favorite christmas song out of 100’s he had put together in a personal christmas collection. “Good King Wenceslas” still can get me misty eyed because it was my fathers favorite and most likely mine too. One not so favorite arrangement that Rich did of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” has become a favorite though when I first heard it, I thought it was pretty whacky.
I had a dream not to long ago that I was in a house on a mountain looking out the window at night. There were no lights on but the view was tremendous with millions of stars in the night sky. It was the most beautiful sight and as I was alone looking out over this incredible view and feeling so at peace I started hearing Silent Night in the background. It was a wonderful feeling and I thank God it hasn’t left me yet......
