Beautiful Memories

I had this album as a child and somehow it was lost in many of my moves. What joyous memories this has brought back!

A thoroughly enjoyable telling of The Christmas Carol

This version of The Christmas Carol is especially sweet since it is the recording of many popular actors from my grandparents era. If anyone has a fondness of black and white movies from the 30's and 40's, you will enjoy hearing Lionel Barrymore as Scrooge. Orson Welles simply introduces this rendition heard on the radio so long ago.
