Album Notes

MORNINGTOWN RIDE TO CHRISTMAS is a 15-track release by veteran Australian rockers The Seekers and includes Christmas and holiday songs "Mary Had A Baby," "Jingle Bells," and "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer."

The Seekers' fourth American album was nothing out of the ordinary, for either the group or pop music in general. The pleasant folk-pop harmonic blend was seasoned by orchestration, including trombone, harpsichord, trumpet, clarinet, flute, and celeste. About half of the material was original, but Bruce Woodley penned a couple of interesting collaborations with Paul Simon ("Cloudy") and Tom Paxton ("Angeline Is Always Friday"). One outside contribution was Kenny Young's "When the Good Apples Fall," which gave the group their last big British hit. ~ Richie Unterberger
