Continuing on with today's French theme, here's a great little record featuring five dozen French girls. I've never listened to it and tried to count how many women I hear singing, so I guess I'm going to have to take their word for it. This is another of those records I've been sharing since my inaugural year, 2005, so I think it's badly in need of a remaster. But until then you'll have to listen to this, my original rip of Les Djinnes Singers-60 French Girls With The Christmas Bell Ringers-Joyeaux Noel (ABC Paramount ABCS 397, 1961, Stereo). Note that there are actually two separate and distinct artists on this records, The Les Djinns Singers and The Christmas Bell Ringers. I suspect that ABC Paramount didn't have enough leased French Christmas music to put out a full record at the time by a single artist, so they had to consolidate two smaller releases into one album.
01. Les Djinns Singers-Minuit, Chretriens (O, Holy Night)
02. Les Djinns Singers-Nuit Des Nuit (Silent Night)
03. Christmas Bell Ringers-Good King Wenceslas
04. Les Djinns Singers-Il Est Ne Divin Enfant (He Is Born A Divine Child)
05. Les Djinns Singers-Noel 'Trois Anges Sont Venus Ce Soir' (Christmas 'Three Angels We've Seen This Night')
06. Christmas Bell Ringers-Hark, The Herald Angels Sing
07. Les Djinns Singers-Non Beau Sapin (O Tannenbaum)
08. Les Djinns Singers-Pour Noel (For Christmas)
09. Christmas Bell Ringers-God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
10. Les Djinns Singers-Noel, C'est L'Amour (Christmas, This Is Love)
11. Les Djinns Singers-Noel Blanc (White Christmas)
12. Christmas Bell Ringers-O, Come All Ye Faithful
Come to think of it, I haven't seen my copy of this record in quite a while. I need to keep my eyes open for it. I think I've seen a mono copy recently, but not the stereo one. You can see more of those candles down at the bottom on the cover of the mono version, I remember that...
