High Power Hammond - Harry Stoneham (1970)

A fine and very entertaining Hammond organ medley album which belongs to my dad!

One of the few ELW-friendly albums he has, it features usual Stoneham hallmarks, the TV medley, the Bacharach medley, blended with other medleys of unconnected material, but which flows so well, that you seem unaware that they are medleys at all!

My highlight is the medley of The Liquidator and Elizabethan Reggae!

 I hope you enjoy it and here's to a Happy New Year in 2016 with more great albums to follow!

Christmas With Love - Geoff Love & His Orchestra (1972)

A Christmas album which is undoubtedly up there with Ron Goodwin's classic Christmas Wonderland!

Like that, this is a blend of tradtional carols and popular 20th Century Christmas songs all arranged in a big orchestral style!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all readers!

20 All Time Christmas Hits (1975)

Another very traditional-sounding Christmas album (sadly a bit crackly too), this time with vocals, including Ken Barrie, the voice of Postman Pat!

Hawaiian Christmas - Wout Steenhuis (1981)


Here we have a very nice traditional Christmas album from the master of Hawaiian guitar.

Featuring 12 Christmas standards arranged in his mellow guitar style, it is very nice and Christmassy, and it well worth a listen if you have enjoyed the Tijuana Christmas album or my post of the Ron Goodwin Christmas album.

I hope you enjoy it and please comment if you do!
