Title

Nitey Nite Lullabies

Description

Cover of a promotional 78 rpm record, created for the Perry Knitting Company's "Nitey Nite" line of children's sleepwear, features a photograph similar to its print advertising of the time. In the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle a local department store offered the album free with the purchase of two or more sleepers (15 April 1954: 4).

"The exquisite timelessness of these songs," reads a portion of the back cover, "the warmth and tenderness of the Choir, these blend in a memorable performance of four of the western world's most beloved lullabies."

The Norman Luboff Choir was a popular creator of easy listening choral music during the 1950s-70s. Featured on this album are Arthur Gleghorn on flute and May Cambern on harp. Below are the four songs listed, including hyperlinks to digitized sound files courtesy of the Kahle/Austin Foundation and the Internet Archive.

Side 1: All Through the Night / Sleep, Baby, Sleep
Side 2: Cradle Song / Brahms' Lullaby
