Oh Snap!

This is a classic share here in the Christmas music sharing blogiverse.  Ernie shared it first, way back in 2005.  CaptOT then linked to Ernie in a column about it in 2006.  Well, it's been 13 years, man, and this album deserves another turn in the spotlight.

I speak, of course, of "Carols of Christmas" by the Snap-On Tools Male Chorus. 

Directed by Mrs. Marjorie Morrow, the Snap-On Tools Male Chorus (for this recording) was comprised of employees of the Snap-On Tools Company of Kenosha, Wisconsin.  For a bunch of tool guys, they are quite good!  They sing with energy and spirit, giving us twelve classic Christmas carols, including one medley that is an amazing 10:52 in length. 

So, I'm on the level and wouldn't throw a wrench in the works, it's hammer time!  Please enjoy the Snap-On Male Chorus :-)

<sigh> As I'm writing this and listening to the rip, it has a few of those pervasive audio hiccups that have plagued me this year due to a stylus change.  Well, enjoy it now and look forward to a re-master next season.
