Dick Leibert Returns-Part Three

This is the second of three Dick Leibert albums on RCA, and this is where it starts to get interesting. Dick was the resident organist at Radio City Music Hall for many years, and he no doubt played the organ for thousands and thousands of performances. Playing that much, you eventually have to learn to improvise and improve things a bit, and that's what he starts to do on this record. In places, he just plain cuts loose. This is what Christmas on the organ is supposed to sound like. Go download Dick Leibert-The Sound Of Christmas On The Radio City Music Hall Organ (RCA Victor LSP-2558, 1962) NOW! Unless, of course, you downloaded it sometime back in 2005 when I first shared it, or in 2006 when I shared it again. I'm working hard to spread the good word!
