Joy of Christmas ~ Bernstein; Ny Philharmonic; Mormon Tabernacle Choir
This album was a mainstay in my family growing up for years. The album my Dad purchased in the early 70's was called 'Christmas with Leonard Burstein - with the Mormom Tabernacle Choir', issued by Sony but made specifically for Eaton's (a big department store in Canada at the time). It contained 10 tracks that I later would realize were taken from this original recording. We played that record for so many Christmases that it began to wear out considerably.
After doing some research online, I was delighted to find this recording on Amazon this time last year and immediately purchased it.
Burnstein's approach with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is brilliant and he gets the best… Read more

I would have never thought I would have seen another release by the Spoons. The ridiculously underated Canadian band has produced a fantastic piece of work.

The album takes pieces from Arias and Symphonies and Talkback, and comes back with a modern sounding pop record.

All the songs are great. My favourites would include "Breaking In", "Imperfekt", "Star Maps" (a great rocker) and the really catchy number from Sandy, "Escape with you". Sandy's voice is so sultry that you think she's singing directly to you:) Great tune and possibly the catchiest song on the record. It would have been nice if she had a few more songs on the album. Maybe the next one?
