Cleveland For Christmas

This is a rerun from back in 2006 (and I reshared it last year, so you might have seen it then, too). I got all excited when I found this on a trip to Ohio in 2006, but oddly enough, I found a copy in my collection this year, hidden away in an area that's remained fairly well untouched since I moved in to my condo in 2004, so I evidently had a copy of this record for years and didn't know it. I've probably got an awful lot of records that I don't know I have, and that's a real shame. Anyhow, this is a record of Christmas music as performed by various schools in the Cleveland area. I've gotten plenty of comments over the past two years from people who attended the schools represented, or knew people who did. Don't think I've heard from anyone who's on the actual album yet, but I'm still hoping. Why don't you download and have a listen to Christmas In Cleveland (Delta Records Of Ohio, Processed and Pressed by Columbia, Mono, XCTV-84680/1)?
