Golden Voices

For your listening pleasure tonight I have "The Golden Voices Sing at Christmas".  The record is a product of Premier Albums from good ol' New York City, and I'd date it as a mid 1960's record.  There isn't much information on the record sleeve, except that the Golden Voices were a group of non-professional singers from a small New England village who eventually found success and were able to record this album of Christmas songs for all to enjoy.

And enjoyable it is.  It's a nice collection of 12 Christmas carols, very pleasing to the ears, very nicely done.  One thing I particularly like is the song selection.  While there are a few of the usual suspects, like "Silent Night", there are also songs that are less frequently recorded, such as "Once In Royal David's City", "As With Gladness Men Of Gold" and "While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night".  It's always pleasant to hear these songs performed by talented groups, instead of yet another rendition of "Jingle Bells".

This is a very enjoyable record of soothing seasonal songs.  Also, I like the spot on the back cover with "A Merry Xmas From ____________", making it gift ready!

So, A Merry Xmas From Der Bingle!
