What new Holiday Music and Movies are on the way for 2018? I’m looking at all the new releases and reissues on the books for this season and will be choosing a hand-picked a collection to showcase here on THE ROCK FATHER™ Magazine. Are there other titles hitting shelves this year? Yes, but as always, they won’t all make my list, and I will be checking it more than twice – adding some late additions before December 25th arrives. It’s all tied-into my annual Holiday Wish Guide™.

2018 is shaping up to be a decent year for Christmas music with new albums from the likes of Eric Clapton, Lil Jon featuring Kool-Aid Man, Goldfinger, William Shatner, Martina McBride, Mike Love (The Beach Boys), The Tossers, Ingrid Michaelson and others.  In addition to many all-new offerings, we’re also seeing the regular patter of having quite a few reissues, with some fairly recent releases being updated with new artwork and bonus tracks for this year’s holiday season. Also a recent trend: vinyl reissues of recent and classic albums.

On the home video front, the trend is lighter than it’s been of late, but there’s still some new offerings and updated collections hitting Digital HD, Blu-ray and DVD. What’s great is that there’s an above-average assortment of seasonal fare coming to theaters, including Disney’s The Nutcracker and The Four Realms, Universal’s The Grinch, and some TCM Big Screen Classics screenings of DIE HARD for its 30th Anniversary (yes, it IS a Christmas movie) and 1954’s White Christmas.

Stay tuned… more titles to be added throughout the 2018 Holiday Season!
