No. 6 - "The Qualities"

'It's Christmas Time' ('56?)


Just to get you all festive here is an extremely rare doo wop on Sun Ra's Saturn label (misspelled on label as Satur). Note the random wooden block sounds which are also used less randomly on the Equallos song in the previous post.

"Saturn RECORDS -- It's Christmas time -- The Qualities: unidentified male vocal quartet. Sun Ra-harmonium; unknown-acoustic guitar; unknown-bells; unknown-wood blocks. Produced by Alton Abraham and Sun Ra. Chicago, probably 1956." 

You can just make out Sun Ra's harmonium in the background and more noticeably towards the end.
