Christmas In Brass


I'm revisiting this record tonight because I recent;y won a Christmas LP by this same group on eBay. I don't know if it's the same music, and I really don't care. I mostly wanted it for it's great cover. I expect to get it in the mail soon, but I doubt if I'll be able to do anything with it until next Christmas But in the meantime, I'm hoping this LP I first shared out last year will hold you over. Here is The Deutschmeister Band, Conducted By Julius Herrmann-Christmas Carols (Westminster WST 15048, Stereo). The question arises in my mind as to what year this was issued. Searching Billboard's archives keeps coming back with 1953, but that's obviously not the stereo version. Perhaps this is a stereo re-recording of that one, or maybe a release of some early binaural copy. Any ideas?

1. In Dulci Jubilo
2. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
3.Good King Wenceslas
4. It Came Upon The Midnight Clear
5. God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen
6. O Come All Ye Faithful
7. From O'er The Hills Of Fair Judea
8. Silent Night
9. Deck The Halls
10. O Little Town Of Bethlehem
11. Wassail, Wassail
12. O Tannenbaum
13. Joy To The World
14. Away In A Manger
15. We Three Kings Of Orient Are
16. The First Noel

Hi Ernie,
I have been trying to download your Fred Waring and the Pennsylvanians "Twas the Night Before Chrismas" from UseNext, but it doesn't seem to work and I don't have a premium subscription to RapidShare. My father played this album every Christmas and I've been searching for it on CD or digital file. Can you please help? Thank you SO much...it would make his and my Christmas if I could give a copy to him of his old favorite album!

Don't download it from Usenet, download it from RapidShare. There's a free option at RapidShare, just follow the prompts. Sometimes it takes a few tries to get an open slot.

Thanks!

Brilliant! Thank you so much. I tried about 5 times today on RapidShare, but it kept saying that I needed a premium account to download the file. I was able to download it tonight without trouble. Thank you, thank you,thank you!!!
