Christmas In July-The Seventh Day

Bit of a quicky here tonight, if ten tracks can be considered a quicky.  All ten of these tracks come from the same 10" LP entitled The Story Of The Music Box (Book Records 10" Collector's Series #1011, Mono, 1952).  Oh, the LP comes in the back of a thin, spiral bound book that tells all about the music box.  Neat little package.  The sound is a little rough, too, but there's some nice Christmas carols on here, if music boxes are your thing.  We hear from a few different types of 19th century music boxes here, including the Household Regina, the American Olympia, the Concert Regina and the Console Regina.  Interesting names, those.  The carols in question are Silent Night, O Sanctissima, Song Of The Virgin Mary, Ave Maria-Gounod, Hark The Herald Angels, First Noel, Skaters' Waltz, Adeste Fideles and two version of Jingle Bells.  You'll either like this one or you won't, so if it sounds like your kind of thing, please be my guest.  Here's the download link.  See you back here tomorrow!  Oh, and if you like the idea of a 10" record, head on over to my buddy Buster's place, a little blog called Big 10-Inch Record.  He specializes in them.

Say, thanks for the plug, pal! I'll have to download this one. My wife likes music boxes.

Note to self: This may have come out as Caedmon CB-2 also. I have the record, but not the book.
