Description

“Merry Christmas” is an album of holiday standards by crooner Bing Crosby. In 1963 the album was made available in electronically re-channeled stereo, with Decca’s moniker “Enhanced for Stereo” added on the upper right corner of the cover.

Mono copies made after the introduction of stereo have “DL-8128” in the bottom left corner of the front cover.

The re-channeled stereo mixes are considered by many to be inferior due to the addition of artificial reverb, giving the once intimate-sounding “dry” original masters a “concert-hall” sound. The reverb is particularly intrusive on tracks such as “Adeste Fideles”, “White Christmas”, and “Silver Bells”.

All copies from the 1960s feature the Decca Rainbow label.
