A Golden Christmas Sing-A-Long - Sandpiper Chorus and Orchestra

A Golden Christmas Sing-A-Long Sandpiper Chorus and Orchestra
You folks must have been real good this year, as here's another rarity (no alternate download spots on Google — my barometer for whether something is available!) — A Golden Christmas Sing-A-Long by the Sandpiper Chorus and Orchestra (Golden Records L67 / Arranged and Conducted by Jim Timmens, 1962.)

Like to sing-a-long with Christmas music? Well, here's your chance! "Performed in the proper keys for children", this album is complete with instructions on how and when to chime in on your seasonal favorites. The Sandpiper vocals even drop out at key moments for you to fill in ("... so be good for goodness ____.")

This gem will either excite you or enrage you (for instance, there's virtually no variation in the arrangements from track to track.) Chances are, however, if you're here in the first place, A Golden Christmas Sing-A-Long might just end up being your favorite download of the 2013 Christmas season.

Please enjoy: A Golden Christmas Sing-A-Long by the Sandpiper Chorus and Orchestra

  6. Even though you didn't upload quite as much material this year, what you've given us is priceless. Thank you very much for this, and here's hoping you're having a wonderful and a Merry Christmas.

  7. Wow! I had this as a child and would LOVVVE to listen to it again! I am having so much trouble with the file download. Any thoughts on that? Even without the songs, the wonderful memories that album cover brings back!

  8. Hello Ryan

    actually, this is not supposed to be a comment, but seems to be the only way to get in contact with you.

    I am a Christmas nerd collecting funky Christmas songs only. At Tramp Records I have already released two compilations "Santa's Funk & Soul Christmas Party" Vol. 1 and 2. They are available worldwide though only very small quantities are issued.

    For quite a long time, I have been trying to find out something about an mp3-compilation or CD titled "Lost Soul Christmas". Some tracks of "Lost Soul Christmas" are featured in few Christmas blogs and radio shows. The compilation must date back to 2007 and contains extremely rare funk and soul Christmas songs.

    I am interested in finding out more about that "Lost Soul Christmas" album. Some of the featured original singles are impossible-to-find. Actually, the compilation itself is also very very scarce. Though it is such a great selection. Do you know anything more about the album or the compiler? Or someone else that might know anything about that album? It would be great, if you could drop me a mail with any information you have to!

    Thank you so much for a response, Jan

  9. We would like to submit some new original music to you.
