If you're experiencing a down time this season, consider this an emotional stimulus package
Ginger Fingers? No, not the English biscuits, but a fun special offer for the holiday season only: Steyn's new CD Goldfinger plus a mini-album of Christmas delights from Mark and his Sweet Gingerbread Gal Jessica Martin.
Gingerbread & Eggnog features Mark & Jessica's groovy take on a late Sixties classic, "Sweet Gingerbread Man", plus the brand new seasonal song "Runnin' On Eggnog". And the Yuletide revelry doesn't stop there: There's also the merriest "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" you'll hear this holiday season, and a swingin' medley of J Fred Coots' perennial "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" with his lesser known "He'll Be Coming Down The Chimney". The team's original version of "A Marshmallow World" is on there, too - plus an extra nutty romp of "Sweet Gingerbread Man" with detours through "The Girl From Ipanema" and "Hey, Mr Tambourine Man".
Goldfinger is Mark's brand new CD, in which he takes a crack at six decades of popular music, from the loveliest ballad of the Great War to his jazzy remake of Ted Nugent's hard-rockin' "Cat Scratch Fever". Along the way you'll also hear "Slow Boat To China", "Can't Take My Eyes Off You", "The Very Thought Of You" and a highly unusual francophone take on "The Way You Look Tonight". Plus, of course, a white-knuckle ride through the definitive James Bond theme.
Featuring sparkling arrangements by Kevin Amos and some of London's best musicians, these two CDs will see you through Christmas, New Year and all the way to the next Bond film opening sequence. If you're in search of instant aural gratification, every song on each album is available in MP3 download - but when you buy both CDs together in our limited-time Ginger Fingers special offer you'll get 15 per cent off the combined retail price.
