The All Time Favorite Ray Conniff Columbia Christmas Album Now On First-Time 180g White Vinyl!
The legendary Ray Conniff and The Ray Conniff Singers, recorded a plethora of top charting albums and hit singles over a career that lasted for decades. Serious mainstays of the adult contemporary and easy listening formats of radio and retail, Ray Conniff also experimented with the collaboration of rich orchestration and choral vocal techniques, which became a much loved sound to their millions of fans.
Progressive in style, it was his zest for the instrumentation, the recording techniques in the studio setting, as well as the many concerts they performed that Ray Conniff and The Ray Conniff Singers would become one of the most successful recording acts of all time. Columbia Records was their home for over forty years and it was here that these power players defined the format and made many hits singles and smash albums that truly showcased their classic roots to a wide reaching pop audience.
We Wish You A Merry Christmas was a huge success for Ray and Co. as they recorded probably one of the most important albums of this genre ever with some of the most thoughtful and imaginative arrangements of carols, Christmas standards and holiday classics ever waxed.
With the album consisting of superior interpretations celebrating Christ’s birth as well as mixing brilliant takes on holiday standards, We Wish You A Merry Christmas is a landmark album that has forever stood the test of time. Just listen to the emotion packed medleys of O Holy Night and probably one of the finest recordings ever of Count Your Blessings as part of the Let It Snow! medley. If you don’t have some tears in your eyes after hearing this brilliantly orchestrated and vocal masterpiece, well then... you’ve come to the wrong place.
This wonderful album has been out of print for many years in the LP format... that is until now. Friday Music is pleased to announce the Ray Conniff masterpiece - We Wish You A Merry Christmas now for a very limited time on 180 Gram Audiophile White Vinyl. Impeccably mastered by Joe Reagoso (Bobby Darin, Andy Williams, Jackie Gleason) and pressed at R.T.I., this amazing recording sounds truly brilliant.
