Jersey Boys (And Girls)

When I saw this record at the Salvation Army store recently, I thought it looked very promising. It was the only thing I found in the store that I needed, and I didn't have any cash on me.  I had to hide the record and run out to the car to scrounge some spare change and pay the $0.50. I got it home and recorded it a few days later, and it wasn't nearly as good as I had hoped. But if I record it, I'm gonna share it, so you get to hear what I heard.  I sat down to work on the cover art the other night and I was just about to Photoshop out the writing at the top and the bottom when I actually read it.  That's when I realized it was autographed by the namesake of the choir, Lewis Shearer, and his wife, the accompanist. I thought that was pretty cool, so I left it in the picture.  Maybe there'll be something on here that you can appreciate, but I was left a little cold.  This is The Lewis Shearer Chorale, Lewis A. Shearer-Director, Elsie Shearer-Accompanist-Born Today! (Record Room/Argus Records RR-1945, Stereo, 1977). Remember folks, you can't tell a record by it's cover!

1. Alleluia!
2. Glory To God
3. Come Ye Lofty, Come Ye Lowly
4. Go Where I Send Thee
5. Alleluia! Now Is The Christmas Morn
6. Go Tell It On The Mountain
7. Born Today! (Hodie Christus Natus Est)
8. Sing A Round For Christmas
9. The Christmas Polka
10. It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year
11. Put Your Hand In The Hand
12. A Marshmallow World
13. Christmas Day Is Here
14. It's Beginning To Look Like Christmas

Looks like one of those records that are sold at the artist's concerts. "Dan" must have bought one. What d'ya think?

Yeah, probably. :)

I have this one and ripped it a couple years ago. Debated sharing, even though it's nothing special. But now I don't have to...

Not bad, and it has a couple pieces you don't hear everywhere. Doesn't mean I'll pllay it that often, but I don't hate it. Thank you.
