I've been slacking a bit, so it's time to show Hi-Fi some love. Here's a new album: The Gene Lowell Chorus' Caroling Caroling (that's right, no punctuation!)
Released on album in 1958 (Warner Bros. Records / WS 1233), this warm-sounding, yuletide fest for male choir is a great Christmas Eve mood-setting choice.
Consisting mainly of the aforementioned male choir, there is also occasional brass accompaniment ("Hark! The Herald Angels Sing"). Gene's singers carry classic tunes with a friendly, professional and inviting tone ("Silent Night").
Despite the age of the album, I managed to make a clean rip of this rich sounding stereo recording (listen to those deep bass tones in "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"!)
Stay tuned for the title track, "Caroling, Caroling", which closes the album. The vocals are slowly faded out, giving the image of Gene Lowell and his Chorus, having performed their set of seasonal favorites, moving on to the next snowy doorstop. Now you don't have to wait for them to show up in your town -- just download the album!
