Album Remarks & Appraisals:

For holiday music lovers, it doesnít get any better than this: two of the greatest choral Christmas albums ever recorded, one making its CD debut, the other long out of print, on a single, 75-minute CD! Norman Luboff, was, of course, a mainstay artist on both the Columbia and RCA Victor labels for close to two decades; he and his Choir recorded everything from cowboy to calypso tunes, always with pure, powerful vocal arrangements that brought out the intrinsic flavor of the material. Here we have two of his greatest triumphs: the original mono version (not the later, reprehensible re-processed stereo version) of 1956ís Songs of Christmas, which actually included among its six medleys the earliest (1952) recordings of The Norman Luboff Choir and went to #22 on the charts, and 1964ís Christmas with the Norman Luboff Choir, which brought stereophonic sound and a more modern repertoire to the Luboff sound. The result was what is generally considered to be one of the best Christmas albums ever recorded in any genre, and another charting record for Luboff. Our Real Gone twofer includes detailed liner notes by Tom Pickles that feature quotes from Luboff scholar Dr. Julie Lane Carter, with photos from the Sony vaults and remastering by Mike Piacentini at Battery Studios in New York. Sure to be a Christmas staple on your stereo for years to come.
