Medallion Of Honor

I've shared out so many records with you here at the blog over the years, it's almost an embarrassment of riches.  Lots of things have finally been released on CD or digital downloads, so there are lots of things I can't share anymore, so that kind of narrows it down.  But there are still a lot of things I can select from.  Sometimes something pops into my head or I'll search through old posts to find something that tickles my memory.  Such is the case here.  It's a release on a sorta major label that was parts of a fancy sound series, but it's been forgotten today.  These stereo show-off records were all the rage for a while, from the late 50's to the early 60's, and just about every label had their own version.  Not many of them featured Christmas records, though, so that's where this one stands out.  If you don't have it from the original share in 2007, go ahead and download it now and give it a listen.  This is The Medallion Orchestra And Chorus, Directed By John Paul Krance-The Sound Of Christmas-Deck The Halls (Medallion (Kapp) MS-7512, Stereo, 1960).
