Jean-Paul Kreder Choir, Christmas Music Of France, Capitol International Series 10484
The Capitol International Series is a mainstay of any Goodwill record bin. Released in the 60s and 70s, they were American pressings of international releases. Most were recorded by people no one has ever heard of, but every now and then the series came up with a Ravi Shankar or Xavier Cougat record.
This flood damaged record isn’t one of the good ones. While I’m usually a sucker for an unknown French Pop record, a random chorus singing French Christmas music just doesn’t cut it. The stock photograph of a pretty French woman getting snowed on is a nice touch, but it doesn’t help the music.
So, because its a Christmas record, I’ll probably keep this in the Christmas section and see if I ever play this again. My guess is “non”, but we shall see.
