Rockettes Red Glare

I'm just teasing you by showing you this cover. I can't share the LP, but I can encourage you to go out and buy it on CD (only $10!). I doubt if the small CD packaging can do justice to this lovely gatefold cover image though. And, as you might have guessed, our friend Dick Leibert plays the organ on this recording of the annual Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular. This is Christmas Holidays At Radio City Music Hall by The Radio City Music Hall Symphony Orchestra under the Direction of Raymond Paige, Richard Leibert at the Grand Organ & The Radio City Music Hall Choral Ensemble (RCA Victor LOP-1010, 1958). The inside of this gatefold features a booklet with lots of behind-the-scenes shots of the process behind bringing the show to the stage. And of course more pictures of the Rockettes, which was probably why most guys bought this record in the first place.
