Harmonicats to Ease into the Season

My first full album share of this season is one to ease into the sharing season. "Dolls Dolls Dolls" by The Harmonicats has three songs that are traditionally associated with the holidays: "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers", "March of the Toys", and "The Toy Trumpet". The rest of the songs are, as you might imagine, about dolls. Beautiful dolls, Spanish dolls, paper dolls, dolls of all sorts.

I love the recording information on the back of the album cover (in the download file). Without this information, I would not have known that the session was taped at 15 ips (inches per second), or that a Telefunken 201 was used. Fascinating.

I like this record a lot - it's upbeat and a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy Jerry Murad's "Electronic" Harmonicats.
