Here's another great album that I used to share but which is now on CD. And that's a good thing, because that means you can hear this one in all the crystal clear fidelity that it so richly deserves. Let me see if I can find a link for you to buy this...Ahh, here's a link to Amazon for ya. If you don't recognize the cover, this is The Voices Of Walter Schumann-The Voices Of Christmas (RCA Victor LPM-1141, Mono, 1955).
Now that you've promised to go out and buy the CD I mentioned above, I've got a special little present for you. Turns out Mr. Schumann and his voices recorded a Christmas song for RCA that isn't on the record. But it is on the record above and the single below. No idea how this got left off the record, it's a pretty nice little song written by Mr. Schumann and a couple other folks. This is The Voices Of Walter Schumann-The Sound Of Christmas from To Wish You A Merry Christmas-The RCA Victor Family (RCA Victor 3x7" 45 RPM EPC-1037, Mono, 1954)
I need to look up the date of this single... Ahh, 1953. So RCA-Victor 47-5542 was out the year before it was compiled onto the album above.
