Recorded in 1965, this was Ray's third and final Christmas album for Columbia. It was
originally released as Here We Come A-Caroling and featured no cover
photo (below left). In the late 1960's, the album was retitled Ray Conniff's Christmas Album
with the cover above. In 1996, the CD was reissued by Sony Special Products with a new cover (below, right).
This CD can be purchased from Amazon.
Original LP liner notes:
Here come Ray Conniff and the Singers a-caroling
some of the most beloved songs of Christmas old, new familiar, unusual.
In preparing his holiday album, Ray carefully sifted through the rich treasure
of Christmas music, selected some of the most warmly glowing songs and adapted
them for the unique voices of the Singers. The result is not only a tribute
to Ray's creativity but also a wondrous reminder in song of the season's exuberance
and grandeur. A "surprise package" is a moving Ray Conniff original,
The Real Meaning of Christmas.
From Ray and the Singers: The Very Best
of Season's Greetings!
