Starlight, Starbright

This was one of those records where as soon as I picked it up, I knew I'd be sharing it come Christmas time.  It's a 10" album, usually the purview of my friend Buster, but I'm gonna share this one out anyway.  Even if you don't like the choral music on this one, you've got to love that cover!  This is Carols For Christmas By The Starlighters Chorus (Capitol 10" 33 RPM H9007, Mono, 1949).

1. Joy To The World
2. Deck The Halls
3. The First Noel
4. It Came Upon A Midnight Clear
5. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
6. We Three Kings Of Orient Are
7. O Come All Ye Faithful
8. Hark, The Herald Angels Sing
9. Gather 'Round The Christmas Tree
10. Silent Night

Thanks for the wonderful shares, as always. Any chance of the Merv Griffin TV Family LP?

I've never seen a copy of that, unfortunately. I keep bugging Lee over at Music You Won't about sharing the whole thing, but I don't think he ever has. Someday...

"Gather Round The Christmas Tree" is a new one to me. Thanks for the vintage goodness. (Great sound for a 1949 record, too!) Thanks, Ernie!

Thanks Ernie - I don't have this one - and I do love the cover!

This is a beautiful, beautiful album. The sound quality is wonderful & the cover scan is awesome. You really do an excellent job, thank you so much for posting these lost gems. It is so greatly appreciated. I am having a ball looking through all of these old albums, and the downloads are fast. You're the Best!
