That Nashville Sound?


One of the leading proponents of the Nashville sound in the sixties was Owen Bradley. Unfortunately, this record was made before he had figured out how to make that sound, as this is filled with your standard issue Christmas organ and chimes. I had such high hopes for this one last year when I first recorded and shared it, but it just wasn't to be. But don't let me turn you off of it. You never know, you find find something here you like. Go ahead and download Organ And Chimes Played By Owen Bradley (Coral CRL 57071, Mono, 1956).

1. We Three Kings Of Orient Are
2. It Came Upon The Midnight Clear
3. Silent Night
4. O Holy Night
5. The First Nowell
6. Joy To The World
7. Deck The Halls
8. Ring Out The Bells-The Bells Of Christmas
9. The Birthday Of A King
10. O Come All Ye Faithful
11. O Little Town Of Bethlehem
12. Away In A Manger

Thanks for the continued daily shares Ernie. I know this has been a tough season simply because of your computer crash last month.

Any chance of resharing the "Sing Along with Mitch" album from 12/14/06?

...just out of curiosity, do you have any idea how many Organ & Chimes LPs you have? Like, could you cover Texas with them?? ;-)

Nice sharing this year!

Merry Christmas!!

I don't have all of them, but close. I need more! Someday I hope to find a good one.

I'm not sure there IS a good organ and chimes album! ;-) BUT I will say that Owen Bradley cover is AMAZING! I just love it. The perfect presentation of vintage Christmas.
