Ghost Town 1952

Ghost Town 1952

This was a interesting purchase. An 8 side, 10 inch, 78 rpm private prep school Christmas project.

The name was so intriguing that I had to have it! All original songs written by the music teachers (I assume). The problem is the singing is recorded using more primitive equipment and you just can't understand the words.

Still, The Musical Magical Christmas Tree is quirky enough... with some odd screeching towards the end to be fun.

And the real treasure for me was that the cover art. It is terrific! The art is silk screened to paper which was fixed to the record book. VERY NICE piece of original art!
