Late December Back In '63

I've been trying to get more remasters up here but failing miserably.  Here's a quick one using the old artwork from my original share back in 2006, but it's a new rip from last year.  I think the sound is light years ahead of that old one, so turn it up loud and enjoy The E.F. MacDonald Company Presents Christmas Classics 1963 (E.F. MacDonald EFMX-63, Stereo, 1963).  The first side is Christmas stories narrated by the original Penguin himself, Burgess Meredith, while the second side is a set of international carols conducted by Joe Reisman.  Good stuff.  I'm still missing a couple of these promos from E.F. MacDonald, gotta dig those up sometime.

1. A Visit From St. Nicholas-Burgess Meredith With Joe Reisman's Orchestra & Chorus
2. Is There A Santa Claus?-Burgess Meredith With Joe Reisman's Orchestra & Chorus
3. The Little Match Girl-Burgess Meredith With Joe Reisman's Orchestra & Chorus
4. O Tannenbaum (O Christmas Tree)-Joe Reisman's Orchestra & Chorus
5. Les Agnes Dans Nos Campagnes (Angels We Have Heard On High)-Joe Reisman's Orchestra & Chorus
6. Dormi, Dormi, O Bel Bambin (Sleep, Sleep, Sweet Babe Of Mine)-Joe Reisman's Orchestra & Chorus
7. Fum, Fum, Fum (Foom, Foom, Foom)-Joe Reisman's Orchestra & Chorus
8. Twelve Days Of Christmas-Joe Reisman's Orchestra & Chorus

Fantastic! Yes, the old rip had those "glassy"-sounding artifacts (usually the result of noise-suppression), but this one is rich! Thank you!
