Auld Lang Syne - 'The Ultimate New Year's Eve celebration' CD was the brainchild of George Reynoso, a record store operator who got tired of losing sales on the traditional New Year's eve song the days and weeks before New Years eve. 'Year after year, I was tired of offering customers the same old fare. Seems to me the public deserved more than Guy Lombardo's dated and sleepy version from 1939 or other assorted ho-hum, no-name versions of the traditional holiday standard.' The market was lacking bright, updated, and contemporary versions of the New Year's eve classic, which is what prompted Reynoso to spend a small fortune contracting a grammy-award winning producer and the best studio musicians in Texas to create five unique and distinct versions of Auld Lang Syne. Geared to the New Year's Eve party market, the song is available in Country, Polka, Freestyle Disco, Disco Vocal, and a classy traditional version produced with digital technology unavailable in Lombardo's time. The CD even features 1-minute countdowns solo or premixed with your favorite version of Auld Lang Syne. This is an essential party tool no New Year's Eve party host can do without. Reynoso's hunch was right! The CD has been featured on CNN News and the content has been licensed for use in a Hollywood film. In 2005 and 2006, Phillips Corporation licensed the traditional version for their National Holiday campaign. The song was then featured on the ABC nightly news and Dick Clark's Annual Rockin New Years Eve television program in conjunction with the Annual New York City - Times Square celebration. Since 1999 the CD has quietly grown to become the recognized CD-of-choice for anyone needing Auld Lang Syne for any occasion.
