Smashing Pumpkins Recording Sessions Wiki

December 1996 - The New Hit Factory, NY

Produced by Arif Mardin and Joe Mardin; Engineered by Michael O'Riley


Sessions for "Christmastime", essentially a solo Billy Corgan performance to R&B producer Arif Mardin's production.

"Smashing Pumpkins mainman Billy Corgan has recorded a solo song for the upcoming charity record `A Very Special Christmas.` Apparently, Corgan recorded the song - appropriately titled `Christmastime` - when he was in New York recently, producing the new solo album from Ric Ocasek, the Bad Brains/Hole producer who was also a one-time member of classic `80s American pop-rock band The Cars. So far, there has been no confirmation as to who else played on `Christmastime` with Corgan.[1]
