MERRY CHRISTMAS IN CAROLS
by Robert Rheims
MISTLETOE RECORDS MLP-1219 1950s? STEREO
O HOLY NIGHT HARK! THE HERALD ANGELS SING GOD REST YE MERRY, GENTLEMEN FROM EVERY SPIRE ON CHRISTMAS EVE THE FIRST NOEL JOY TO THE WORLD DECK THE HALLS THE CHRISTMAS CHIMES ARE PEALING AWAY IN THE MANGER I SAW THREE SHIPS
SILENT NIGHT O LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM GOOD KING WENCESLAUS ANGELS WE HAVE HEARD ON HIGH IT CAME UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR O CHRISTMAS TREE WE THREE KINGS OF ORIENT ARE I HEARD THE BELLS ON CHRISTMAS DAY ADESTE FIDELIS (O COME ALL YE FAITHFUL)
Editor's note: after listening to this record for less than 9 seconds I have determined that it is and will be my favorite holiday record of the season. All music should have an organ in it or at least a mellotron. The exact date of the Mistletoe release is most likely in the 60s or 70s since it's another re-release but the original recordings appear to be from the late 1950s.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
