Christmas With Conniff - The Ray Conniff Singers (1959)

This album always brings visions of aluminum Christmas trees and this music blasting out of console stereos like these.

The Ray Conniff Singers were essentially the vocal relief between the Mantovani and 101 Strings instrumentals in the Name-That-Tune world of your typical "Beautiful Music" FM radio stations of the '60s and '70s. They were known for making "safe" covers of pop songs your parents could like.

This included disco.

They actually continued until the '80s.

  1. "This included disco." Sure did. Conniff did a whole album of it. And if you think that's bizarre, try his covers of 99 Red Balloons and Wake Me Up Before You Go Go. They're on Youtube - I dare ya.
