Remastered Strings

Hey, check it out, it's a remastered version of a share from 2008, and not only does it sound better, none of the tracks skip this time around!   I really wanted to share this out back then because I thought it was nice and I'd only ever seen the one copy, but I was disappointed when three of the tracks skipped badly.  After going three years and never seeing another copy (although I did find two EPs pulled from the LP, but they only covered two of the three skipping tracks), I took another stab at my only copy of the record using two different turntables and a few tricks I've picked up in the meantime, and I got a good rip!  So be sure you grab this one and replace your old copy.  This is The Somerset Strings-Music For Christmas At Home (Epic LN 3159, Mono, 1955).

1. Sleigh Ride
2. White Christmas
3. Silent Night, Holy Night
4. While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks
5. Good King Wenceslas
6. The First Nowell
7. Jingle Bells
8. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
9. Once In Royal David's City
10. It Came Upon The Midnight Clear
11. Away In A Manger
12. O Come All Ye Faithful

I'm actually slowing way down this year. Trying not to post too many reruns, especially the stuff that's still up from last year. But we'll see. :)

I just dropped by to say that I really appreciate this site & cruise by this time of year. (Although I have visited for christmas in July, but usually in August.) Have you got a place for requests or suggestions?

Sounds great! Thank you for all you do! I know it must take a good deal of time to clean up these recordings and post them. But you do a super job!

This album is so gorgeous I don't know where to begin! How often in 2011 do you get to use such words as lovely, charming, delightful, fresh-this music is these! Thanks!!!!!!!

This is a great sounding record.

Like everyone else, I love coming by in December to see what you've posted. They're presents for me all month long.

Now on to the Lennon Sisters, lol.
