Latest news: The Ray Conniff Christmas Show was broadcast on public television stations in Florida, Michigan, Oregon and California from October through December 2013. Hopefully the program will be available in additional markets in 2014.
A new 60 track, 3-CD set titled Ray Conniff: 60 Exitos originales is being sold on eBay and should be avoided! Half of the tracks have nothing to do with Ray and were previously issued on Lps attempting to cash in on his name. The other selections were taken from Ray's Laughter In The Rain, We've Only Just Begun and Speak To Me Of Love albums. The sound quality is very poor on all tracks.

The new Conniff discography is progressing, albeit slowly. The discographies I created last year for Bert Kaempfert and Ferrante & Teicher were useful prototypes but the data relationships for this site are a bit more complex.
