third day of blogmass

I've posted this one primarily for its great cover art.
Not a bad listen, though. Some of it's a little bit space age poppy.

From the liner notes:
The most joyous sounds of the year are those that we hear at Christmas. Here is Andre Kostelanetz and His Orchestra with a lustrous garland of favorite songs and carols, old and new, to help you celebrate in festive fashion this Holiday of holidays. Under the inspired leadership of Maestro Kostelanetz, the orchestra makes these twenty selections glow as radiantly as the spirit of the season itself.
A stirring Yuletide tribute, STEREO WONDERLAND OF CHRISTMAS mingles mirth and reverance–in the stunning Andre Kostelanetz manner.

You just helped me greatly! Long story short, many of my LPs had their jackets and sleeves (along with the entire labels on some records) eaten by some larvae of some sort. The albums, after much cleaning, sound better than ever, but I had no idea what this one was! Thanks. :)
