New Kick! - The New Christy Minstrels

I Want To Hold Your Hand (from the mono press)
New Kick!
The New Christy Minstrels
Sing The Hits Of Today & Tomorrow
Arranged and Directed by Bob Alcivar
Columbia CS 9342 & CL 2542

My jaw just hit the floor...

This is another one of those crazy albums released by an choral group that features "rock/pop" covers. A series of albums produced by The Ray Bloch Singers comes to mind as another example. Also, check out Positively 4th Street by The Living Voices.

From the back cover: The mobility of the Minstrels was never more evident than in this album, NEW KICK! It is a showpiece for a group that is trying always to stay well ahead of the pop-music pack in imagination and creativity.
