Dick Leibert Day-Part Four

Have you got all the other Dick Leibert records downloaded and listened to? If so, then you're ready for this LP, which is new to the blog, but not new in real life. I have no idea of the date for it, but I'm going to say late fifties. This is one of the records from which they lifted a track for the Westminster Sampler I shared with you earlier this morning. There is still another Leibert Christmas LP out there called Christmas At Radio City, but on Westminster (WP 6035), that I don't have, but I'm hunting. I like how this one highlights the Wurlitzer Organ Company connection, even using their logo on the front. On the backside, they almost always spell it WurliTzer, just to go along with the logo, I suppose. This album isn't as exciting as the later two on RCA, but it's still quite listenable. And I know how you folks love your organ music. So go get Dick Leibert-A Merry WurliTzer Christmas (Westminster WP 6060).

Yo Philly-The Muzak LP is still in the archives somewhere, if you do a quick search you should find it. The FS one is something that I probably can't share out. I think half of the tracks or so have been put out on CD here or there. Having said that, I think it's out there in blogland. If not now, then soon...

Great blog! I'm loving it! I have the Christmas at Radio City Music Hall with Dick Leibert at the organ, 2 lp set from 1973 (RCA Camden ADL2-0243). The fact is it is a re-release of the previous two Dick Leibert lps you already posted: Happy Hits of Christmas and Sounds of Christmas. Same songs, same recordings, different packaging. In fact the track listings are exactly the same as the individual lps:

Christmas at Radio City Music Hall:
Side A:
Deck the Halls
Joy to the World
The First Noel
Silent Night
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
O Holy Night

Side B:
Silver Bells
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
The Christmas Song
Santa Claus is Comin' to Town
Winter Wonderland
Under the Christmas Mistletoe
I Heard the Bells on Christmas day

Side C:
Sleigh Ride
White Christmas
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
It Came Upon the Midnight Clear
Jingle Bells
Parade of the Wooden Soldiers

Side D:
Medley: We Wish You a Merry Christmas; O Tannenbaum
Oh Little Town of Bethlehem
Angels We Have Heard on High
God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen
We Three Kings of Orient Are
Adeste Fideles (O Come, All Ye Faithful)

So unless you're interested in having a flimsy dynaflex re-issue of the albums you already have, there's no need to get this one.

Thanks for typing all that in, Daryl, but I think I mentioned in my post that it's a reissue. i just wanted to throw up the picture.

Hi there,
I know it may be a little early for Christmas, but anything by Dick Leibert would be welcome. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I can't download the Westminster or the Christmas one with Leibert ... Please help.
