Candles Long Ago is the 14th album by popular children's entertainers Sharon, Lois & Bram, originally released in 1993. It is the first, and only, Chanukah album produced by the trio. Unlike other Sharon, Lois & Bram albums, Candles Long Ago is a miniature album featuring only eleven songs, of which many appear on their previous album Candles, Snow & Mistletoe and one from their second album, Smorgasbord. O It was sold as part of the Sharon, Lois & Bram mini collection at a cheaper price than the trio's regular full-length albums.
