The third part of tonight's Westminster-palooza features what may be the ugliest Christmas LP cover of the season, if not all-time. I don't know how to describe it, it's just bad. Did one of the kids on the album draw this? I'm scared to pull up the rear cover and look. I'm not sure where or when I got this album, but I know that I've had it for many years now. I tried to record it some years back, only to discover that someone had taken something very similar to a key and scratched the second side very, very badly. Prior to this year, every time I tried to play that side, all I got was a whole pile of skips. I gave it another shot this year, and what do you know, it played! So remember that if you have some record that's really rare but won't play. Different players and needles track differently, and what may be a lost cause on your record player might play fine elsewhere. Enough blathering, what's the record sound like? Well, it's kids singing, they all sound pretty much the same. So if you want to listen to that, please download American Children Sing Christmas Carols (Westminster WP 6025, Mono, 1956). There are 24 tracks on this thing, and I really don't feel like typing them all in. The groups featured include Brooklyn Museum Children's Chorus-Conducted By John Motley, Jan Hus Children's Choir-Conducted By Elyse Blodgett, Queen's Children's Chorus-Conducted By Carl Koop, Junior Choir Of The Second Spanish Evangelical Church Of New York-Conducted By Barbara Horan And Stanley Morgan and La Chorale Du Lycée Francais De New York-Conducted By Sylvia Durieux.
