Double The Waring

As I hinted in my last post, there was a companion album to Fred Waring's 'Twas The Night Before Christmas. Read the liner notes closely on either that release or the one above, and you'll see where they talk about both albums. I had forgotten about that until earlier this year, but when I remembered it, I knew I had to get his other album up here. So I dug it from the archives, recorded it, scanned it, and now I'm going to share it with you. The songs on this one run more toward the sacred, as opposed to the other one, which has more fun songs. But that doesn't mean you won't like it. Download Fred Waring And The Pennsylvanians-Christmas Time (Decca DL 78172) and see for yourself. I don't know if this is a later stereo re-recording, or perhaps it's in electronic stereo. I didn't realize until later that it's unlikely to have come out in stereo if it was actually from 1955 like the other LP. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Incidentally, Ernie, Library of Congress guesses this one to be from 1955. See http://lccn.loc.gov/93718988
