Boring Organ

I kept thinking all season that I had shared this album out before with a different cover, but I don't see it anywhere in the archive except in a folder labelled "Not Shared". So I guess I meant to share it, but never actually finished it up. I suspect it wasn't all that exciting of a record, so I never felt the need to finish. It's still not that exciting of a record, but at least here I have what I think is the original cover, and not the much more common later re-issue. If you need more of the old-fashioned organ and chime Christmas music, this is your record. Please enjoy Charles R. Cronham-Christmas Carols (AKA Christmas Carols With Organ And Chimes) (Mercury MG 20040, Mono, 1953).

  1. Merry Christmas, Ernie! Hope you are having a lovely holiday.

  2. At the risk of being redundant, repetitive, and saying the same thing over and over again, this sort of thing is my cup of tea. Cheers!

  3. @humanebean,

    Are you also going to be terse, succinct, short-winded and economical of both word and phrase and sentence and paragraph?
