Fred Waring's The Meaning of Christmas

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Yes, it's my first album sharity, and it's a doozy.

Fred Waring came up with a non-rock 'n' roll concept album for Christmas. (Psst: it is not a secular album, for all of you who come here for my atheistic snottiness, but it is a fantastic album.) There are undoubtedly many songs here that most of you have never heard. And that's something. The style is, if you aren't aware of Fred Waring's sound in the mid sixties, what they used to call Light Classical. Not "light classical" in the sense of digital music services today who think light classical means Handel and Mozart. Who are they, anyhow? Light Classical is Andre Kostelanetz. 101 Strings, before they tried to go psychedelic. Mantovani (mostly). Rich orchestration, traditional choral arrangements, and heavy on the fantasia. Want a short taste?

Link expired-check comments for info about how to buy album.
BTW, on this album, you get to hear ol' Fred himself, explaining what Christmas means. What a treat!

...and, for those of you who desire a pure musical, lying-on-the-carpet -in-front-of-the-Magnovox-Hi-Fi-console experience, with no fadeouts:
