The main reason I bought this album at my local thrift store was the pretty nifty cover artwork. It's an eye catcher and I hoped the music inside would live up to it.

Here's a budget release from Mount Vernon Music (Google comes up empty) from the Manhattan "Pops" Symphonic Band (again empty).

If you're looking for a larger, Salvation Army-style band playing your favorite Christmas tunes (including two Christmas Medleys with some nameless music that connects real Christmas music), than this album is for you.

At some points on this album, the music sounds like the tapes were slowing down slightly - truly recorded on the cheap.

Happy listening...
