My Merry Christmas Announcement

Music Scripture doesn't say it be we know those angels were singing at the manger. And music has been the heart of Christmas ever since.

Need Some Help with Some Old Albums I've Come Across...

Hi all,

My Christmas music collecting continues and I've stumbled across the following 3 albums that, aside from a song or two here and there, sound identical. Can anyone help figure out the deal with these sharity items...

Al Goodman and his orchestra play A Christmas Symphony ( http://rapidshare.com/#!download|277tl3|78638258|AGXmasSymphony.zip|6296 9 )

White Christmas - George Jenkins - The Christmas Strings ( http://rapidshare.com/files/312755010/George_Jenkins_-_White_Christmas.zip )

Christmas Favorites - International Pop Orchestra/110 Musicians ( http://www.mediafire.com/?eyxmzuzjmzz )

Like I said, these sound identical. I don't know if its poster's error or what.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING AND A MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

I did find this at falalalala.com...

It is actually a record that came out in the fifties and sixties under many different titles. I first heard it as "A Christmas Symphony" by Al Goodman. It was also titles "1000 Strings st Christmas". Later it was released as by George Jenkins. Id love to know the real origin of this one. It is one of my favorites.

Thank you for the vote of confidence, MerryCarey, but Superfreak3 found my first source in such matters at The Fa anyway! That is where I always look first when tasked about Christmas music.

The repackaging of recorded Christmas music is hard to sort through at times even in this digital age.
