One Sun


Since we're having a Christmas party around here anyway, why not invite The Three Suns? These guys know how to have a party! This is an early 10" record from the boys. They weren't up to their late 50s/early 60s spaciness yet, and Living Stereo hadn't even been invented, but you can see the seeds of things to come in the recordings on this mid-sized slab of vinyl. So please download and give a listen to The Three Suns-Christmas Party (RCA Victor LPM -3056, 1952). These guys had about half a dozen different Christmas releases over their career, and I've got several of them to share. Stay tuned!

Bless you for all the Three Suns largesse. You have done the world a great service by issuing their complete Christmas recordings. I'm still not recovered from the shock of their Persuasive Percussion approach to "White Christmas" on a "Ding Dong Dandy Christmas."

Oh, this isn't all of it. There's a later LP, and I think an EP from between this 10" and the 12". I'm working on getting those for you. I know I have the album somewhere, and I need to make another trip to Banana's to get the EP. There's so much to do and only 13 sharing days 'til Christmas.
