Love The Leibert

Here's some really good organ stuff for your holiday enjoyment!  Yes, I said good organ, there is such a thing you know.  Dick Leibert does a great job of making the pipes play on this album and the next one down, not so much on the last one down there, but I'm a completist, so deal with it.  This first LP is from 1962, and I first shared it in 2005, but I have remastered it since then so it should sound good. This is Dick Leibert-Senior Organist At The Radio City Music Hall-The Sound Of Christmas On The Radio City Music Hall Organ (RCA Victor LSP-2558, Stereo, 1962).

1. Deck The Halls
2. Joy To The World
3. The First Noel
4. Silent Night
5. Hark The Herald Angels Sing
6. O Holy Night
7. Medley: We Wish You A Merry Christmas-O Tannenbaum
8. Oh Little Town Of Bethlehem
9. Angels We Have Heard On High
10. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
11. We Three Kings Of Orient Are
12. Adeste Fideles (O Come, All Ye Faithful)

Next up, from the following year, this LP is more of the same.  Again, I first did this one in 2005 with a remaster at some point along the way.  Welcome to Dick Leibert-Senior Organist At The Radio City Music Hall-The Happy Hits Of Christmas (Christmas Evergreens Played On The Radio City Music Hall Organ) (RCA Victor LSP-2771, Stereo, 1963)

1. Silver Bells
2. Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer
3. The Christmas Song
4. Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town
5. Winter Wonderland
6. Under The Christmas Mistletoe
7. I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day
8. Sleigh Ride
9. White Christmas
10. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
11. It Came Upon The Midnight Clear
12. Jingle Bells
13. Parade Of The Wooden Soldiers

Last, and possibly least is this set of two 45s that came out 11 years prior to the earliest of the two LPs above.  This one is much more of what you expect when I say organ Christmas music, but I feel the need to throw it in here anyway due to my anal retentive tendencies.  Again from 2005, This is Sing And Rejoice! Christmas Carols Played by Dick Leibert At the Organ of the Radio City Music Hall New York City (RCA Victor EPB 3056, Mono, 1951). Hope you like medleys!

1. Joy To The World-Away In A Manger
2. It Came Upon The Midnight Clear-Oh, Holy Night (Cantique De Noel)
3. Hark The Herald Angels Sing-Silent Night
4. The First Noel-As With Gladness Men Of Old
5. O Come All Ye Faithful (Adeste Fideles)-Oh Little Town Of Bethlehem
6. Angels From The Realms Of Glory-While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks
7. We Three Kings Of Orient Are-Good King Wenceslas
8. Deck The Halls With Boughs Of Holly-God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
