Title - Christmas Attic: Double LP, Remastered, 180 gram
Artist - Trans-Siberian Orchestra
OK, yes, even for me listening to Christmas music in early November doesn't usually sit well with me (grumpy ol' sod), but there's always been something a little off, different with the way the Trans-Siberian Orchestra create and perform their brand of festive sounds.
And so, just in time for the thoughts of Christmas gift-giving, Audio Fidelity has lovingly brought out the double 180 gram vinyl LP of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra's, The Christmas Attic. Indeed, up until this year, The Christmas Attic has sold over 1.9 million CDs alone.
Superior musicianship, arrangement, and production. Innovative and fresh, not the typical Christmas fare, a delight to play in background for holiday parties, The Christmas Attic is a true holiday gem. The Trans-Siberian Orchestra has a wonderful take on Christmas music, as mentioned and if you can catch their Christmas live shows; complete with laser performances each and every year, I suggest you book now!
The double LP set recordings have been brilliantly remastered by Keving Gray and are packaged in a seasonal gatefold jacket that includes a beautifully illustrated and colorful 12-page 12-inch booklet filled with the storybook tale of "The Christmas Attic." Also contained are the lyrics to 17 songs, including the popular Trans-Siberian Orchestra holiday radio hit, 'Christmas Canon,' a variation of Pachelbel's famous Canon in D Major.
Oh, and for those of you who do not know this, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra is actually a band called Savatage that has been making records since the early 80's! And whereas The Christmas Attic is indeed an awesome album, their first album, Christmas Eve and Other Stories was also rated in the top 5 of all-time for Christmas albums!
This is the first time this beloved album has been made available on vinyl - plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings!
