Poetry in Motion – Xmas 2019
Tis the weekend of Christmas, and in An Sibin Stax of holiday wax are all that can be seen. The Public Records’ albums were in order put there by Max (who’s probably a hoarder).
The floors had been mopped with the chairs on tables as a piano tuner was finessing cables. With kegs in the fridges, glasses left to dry, it’s we are ready to have another big night.
This week we have so much music to display choosing only one album seems rather blasé. Since all the music picked is Yuletide themed a fast way to go through them all is the scheme.
A collection of carols is what we have first, produced in 1971 by Back To The Bible Broadcast. On this you will hear historical pieces that the enjoyment of never decreases.
Next up on the list is a Motown production While often covering heartbreak and seduction, decided instead to record The Supremes who set the mood for funky holiday dreams.
Now we have Happy Holidays Album Seven which features pop artists singing about heaven. From Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Nat King Cole the album is a mix of the new and old.
Glen Campbell is a writer used by many who wrote number one hits artists a-plenty. We have his Christmas album in this year’s pile and even if they’re all covers, you still smile.
Another compilation like the one from before with many of the same artists and a few more. However, this time it’s only traditional tunes that these easy listening pop stars’ll croon.
The next album’s production value is much bigger with Royal Canadians and Guy Lombardo. It is the same holiday fare that you know well Red-nosed Rudolph, Silent Night, and Jingle Bells.
For something to put you under a church steeple our next selection sounds perfectly medieval. Milton Kaye is on organ, Harry Breuer on chimes These fellows will take you back to simpler times.
The Texas Boys Choir sings some Benjamin Britten as well as carols that in other lands have been written. You can say what you want about any Texan, but they seem to enjoy songs from different lands.
Yet again another Christmas compilation of covers by artists of great variation. Classical and country are some selections on A Very Merry Christmas volume VII.
X-mas in hi fi is what is coming up next It’s supposed to sound better (RCA promised in text). George Melachrino, orchestra conductor arranges your favorite songs, carols, and more.
The next two albums, together they are special; the acts featured and the recording are local. Music from the Moravians in Lititz adds that spice to make our library the shit.
Now that you know what the weekend will have in store Come on down, explore the shelves; there is so much more. You can be the DJ and drink world class gin only at Tellus360 where everyone’s equal and everyone wins.
