A Rose By Pretty Much The Same Name

Here's a great late-season share from 2006 I wanted to bring back. David Rose is best know for The Stripper, but much of his music was less forward than that song, much smoother and silkier. This collection of Christmas standards from 1956 certainly won't make anyone jump up and start shedding clothes. That shouldn't stop you from downloading and listening to A Merry Christmas To You From David Rose And His Orchestra (MGM E3469, 1956, Mono). All the songs are mashed up into two side-long medleys, I'm afraid. Did I mention this is smooth stuff?

Tracks include:

O Little Town Of Bethlehem
O Christmas Tree
Jolly Old Saint Nicholas
Good King Wenceslas
O Holy Night
Hark, The Herald Angels Sing
It Came Upon The Midnight Clear
While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night
Away In A Manger
We Three Kings Of Orient Are
Deck The Hall With Holly
The First Noel
Joy To The World
The Twelve Days Of Christmas
I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day
I Saw Three Ships
Unto Us A Boy Was Born
Wassail Song
Angels, From The Realms Of Glory
Christmas Is Coming
Angels, We Have Heard On High
Toyland
Silent Night
O, Come All Ye Faithful
