The BAR-D Roundup: Volume
A joyful release! The BAR-D
Roundup: Volume Eight is a two-CD collection, a diverse chorus of
voices presenting contemporary and classic Christmas works. Opening the
holiday celebration is a beautiful rendition of the shaped-note
"Christmas Waltz" by Buck Ramsey (1938-1998), accompanied by his sisters
and brother. In two of the many pieces recorded just for this
compilation, Don Edwards recites Badger Clark's "The Christmas Trail"
and Waddie Mitchell offers his original "Good Gift." Red Steagall
delivers S. Omar Barker's "Three Wise Men" and the voice of Jimmy Dean
is heard in a vintage recording of Barker's "A Cowboy's Christmas
Prayer." There are 48 tracks on the two-CD compilation.
Read all about it and the other
volumes of The BAR-D Roundup here.
