More From Red Vinyl

I know the color of the vinyl doesn't make the music any better, but it sure does look cooler when it's spinning round and round on the turntable.  Someone should invent an illuminated turntable that throws light up through the vinyl from below.  You could probably do that easily with LEDs these days, they don't throw off a lot of heat.  Hmmm, I wonder if anyone has already done that, perhaps I shouldn't have said anything.  Don't steal my idea!  Anyhow, got another great organ LP for you tonight, this time including vibraphone and guitar!  I think this one is pretty good, some of you will get a big kick out of it.  It features a couple of tracks that don't show up on your organ LPs very often, Christmas In Killarney & Merry Christmas Polka (though the label doesn't say the polka part, that's the song...).  Looking at the list of about a thousand other LPs by Paul Carson on the back of the jacket, there's another Christmas LP out there, though with some overlap of this one.  Something else to track down.  For your almost-New Year's listening pleasure, this is Paul Carson-Music For Christmas (Alma Records C-1854, Red Vinyl, Mono).

1. Silent Night! Holy Night!
2. Green Sleeves
3. Good King Wenceslas
4. We Three Kings
5. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
6. Jesu Bambino
7. Winter Wonderland
8. Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer
9. White Christmas
10. Jingle Bells
11. Christmas In Killarney
12. Let It Snow
13. Merry Christmas

Look closely at those notes on the label.  It's hard to see, but they have the letters of his name on them.  I thought it was a neat little touch.

I'll have to try this one - the combination of instruments sounds intriguing.

There is a turntable that is made of clear acrylic. I kidy ou not. I have seen pictures of some guy who post pictures of what he is listening to on his turntable on Facebook. And he added lights under the platter, which is also made of acrylic. And he always buys colored vinyl to show it off. Very cool looking. Anyways, there is a turntable made by Pro Ject that you can add a acrylic platter. Just add leds underneath the platter. Very cool looking.
