A Christmas Happening!

Here's another great example of the old adage that you never know what's in the grooves until you drop a needle in there. I didn't know what to think of this record when I found it last year, all sealed in plastic. Usually you don't find sealed copies of records that are any good, because people tend to want to listen to them. But I like the look of the cover and bought it. Turns out, it was really good. So good that The King Of Jingaling decided to share a track off of it on his annual compilation last year. I meant to share it then, but time got away from me, but here it is for your downloading pleasure, Veo Gray And The Jodie Lyons Singers-A Christmas Happening (Agaco Records SLP-2156, Stereo).

1. Christmas Medley-O Little Town Of Bethlehem, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, Angels We Have Heard On High
2. Deck The Hall
3. Jingle Bells
4. O Come, All Ye Faithful
5. O Come, O Come Immanuel
6. Rest Your Head
7. Silent Night
8. We Wish You A Merry Christmas
9. While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks

This year, I found a second LP that bears Veo Grey's name as well, but I'm afraid to listen to this one. It's a recording of a church choir where he's the musical director in Ocala, Florida. Maybe I'll get to it next year.

Hey Ernie, I missed this one. Any chance of a re-up?
