Christmas With Chimes And Chorus

While putting away some records that were in my office I found this Christmas album that I purchased a few months ago at a thrift shop, and thought I would post it here tonight, with Christmas being just 2 days away!
Its a Disneyland Record (DQ-1239) from 1963 and is called, 30 Favorite Songs of Christmas with Chimes and Chorus. It includes 30 traditional Christmas favorites filled with tons of bells and chimes... a little to many bells and chimes for my liking! Luckily the great looking artwork on the album cover makes up for the music on the vinyl, which looks like it had never been played before.

Mickey's Chrismas Carol

Now that it is December, I thought I would share this Disneyland Records version of Mickey's Christmas Carol that I picked up a few months back. This album is from 1982 and as all other Disney records with read along story books, this one is a 7 inch 33 1/3 RPM long playing record.
While working in my office tonight I have turned on my Ion TTUSB10 USB Turntable to listen to a bunch of my Christmas vinyl. There is something so comforting in all those clicks and pops while listening to your old favorites. And who could forget hearing"This is the story of Mickey's Christmas Carol. You can read along with me in your book. You will know it is time to turn the page when you hear the chimes ring like this..."
