Eric Wrobbel sings and plays all the parts on most of his recordings. Since this version of “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” is a cappella, there were no “parts” to play. Not in the audio perhaps, but what about the video?
Quoting Mr. Wrobbel: “I have to do everything around here.”
Since Les Paul, many recording artists have doubled (and tripled) their own voices and instruments on their recordings. Eric Wrobbel has been doing this since the 1960s, recording anonymously, pseudonymously, and, rarely, under his own name. Regardless of band name or credit, he is sometimes the only person on these multi-layered recordings.
Such is the case here on this Christmas classic, featuring home movie footage of Christmases past and a rare on-screen appearance.
Is it just a little bit crazy to record as an a cappella group all by yourself? Probably. But not as crazy as performing it that way in a video. Here you get both!
