10 December: The Living Guitars: Over The River And Through The Woods - Jingle Bells

Published December 10, 2013

I haven't really got very much to say about this medley, except that I find its light touch strangely soothing. The Living Guitars were not a real group as such, as far as I can tell, but rather professional session musicians, brought together by a record company (RCA Camden in this case) for recording purposes only.

What more can I tell you? This track comes from an album entitled The Joy Of Christmas. It was released in 1969. It was recorded in Webster Hall, New York City.

And it was produced by one Ethel Gabriel, who Wikipedia just informed me is a bit of a legend in the music business, being the first female record producer (at least in the United States). Fancy that. Well done, Ethel!

Listen here.
