More Christmas

There are so many good records out there that aren't available on CD. I don't know why. For many of them, there is simply no excuse for not having the music available. Take this one, for instance. You could have easily fit Ramsey Lewis' second Christmas record on the same CD as the first. But they didn't. Well, there's some evidence that they did something like that in Japan, but it's been a while since that one was available. Consequently, this record isn't on CD. And based on some of the comments I've heard, a lot of people out there don't even know this exists. Much like Santa Claus, it does exist! And I've even got two different covers for it. (The cover below is something I just recently found, and it isn't in the download, so if you want it, grab it now. It's a little beat up, but you'll get the idea.) Please download and enjoy The Ramsey Lewis Trio-More Sounds Of Christmas (Cadet LP-745, 1964). PS-I first shared this in 2007.

Funny, the second cover is the one I'm more familiar with!

Thanks for all the awesome posts, Ernie (Not Bert)! You're a dream come true for this fellow thriftshop LP connoisseur without a working turntable!
