Joyful And Triumphant (Spectrum LPS 3401) 1970



Christmas production on the same California custom label as the Mustardseed lp (the one with the psychedelic bumper sticker). Listed here only because the album contains two nice tracks performed by Mustardseed: the melancholy ballad ‘Shepherd’s Song’ and the Doors-edged ‘Together’ (both songs would later appear on their full-length album, although the version of ‘Together’ here is quite a bit different). There’s a string-backed acoustic ballad by Rita Matoka and a couple soulful tracks by The Dannie Belles, but most of the album is traditional Christmas stuff with chorale and orchestra. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).



I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Ken for the front cover photo.  Thank you Donald for the rear cover photo and the track listing.
