There are many extra tracks on this CD that only add to making it terrific.The Four Lads calypso "Mary's Boy Child" is exciting and will make you want to start dancing.
If you have seen the cartoon version using the same songs, it just can not give an idea of how wonderful this original version is. This is a CD that can be played all year, not just during Christman.
THE STINGIEST MAN IN TOWN was remade as an animated ABC special by Rankin/Bass in 1978 starring Walter Matthau as Scrooge, with the same songs. There was no soundtrack album, though a promotional LP that tied in with the 1978 show was released by the "Alcoa Singers."
Some of the 1956 arrangements on the Columbia album always sounded very Rankin/Bass to me, with the sweeping violins (that sound like Rudolph taking off). It turns out, as Tutti himself recalled, that longtime R/B arranger/conductor Maury Laws may have worked with Camarata on the arrangements, by coincidence! Anyway, it's really worth a listen I had given up hope that it would ever make it to CD. What a great gift!
