Apollo II

Here's another entry in my quest to bring back all the old shares that never got any comments.  This time it's from 2011 and features the members of a singing social club from Minneapolis.  That's exactly what you're looking for when it comes to Christmas music, I'm sure, especially if you happened to know someone in the club!  At least it's on the somewhat famous Soma label!  This is Christmas With The Internationally Famous Apollo Club (Soma MG 1216, Mono).

1. Shepherds, Awake
2. It Came Upon A Midnight Clear
3. Mary Had A Baby
4. Carol Of The Bells
5. Silent Night
6. The Innkeeper's Carol
7. As It Fell Upon The Night
8. O Bone Jesu
9. Oh Come All Ye Faithful
10. Luther's Cradle Hymn
11. Deck The Halls

I surprised I didn't comment back then that the Soma label was perhaps best known for the Fendermen's 1960 version of Muleskinner's Blues. Good morning, Captain!

The Innkeeper's Carol is one of the best! Thanks again, Ernie.

Love it. Thank you very much! Enough not as well known titles to keep things interesting.
