From The Great White North, Eh


Some of you have been asking for this record since last year. Well, not exactly this record, but you've been asking for Gisele. I wanted to share her full-length LP, Christmas With Gisele, but I couldn't get a recording of it that didn't skip. However, I did find this EP that came out the previous year on the RCA susidiary, Vik. It's got 4 of the songs that showed up on her full length release the next year, so you're almost halfway there. Someday I'll get a better copy of the full album and share it with everybody, I pomise. In the meantime, please download and enjoy Gisele MacKenzie-Joyeux Noel (Vik EXA-271, Mono, 1957). The sound is a little rough on this one, but there is some good music if you listen through the noise. There'll be a quiz later, so please pay close attention to her French lessons.

Update: Looks like someone finally wised up about this record. It's now available for download on iTunes. So I can't share it anymore, but you can download a nice MP3 version of it. Actually, what they've got is the whole LP that this EP is pulled from, but you get the idea.

This is the best - too bad it's only an EP ...

Wow...never thought I'd get this on a download! I have the original vinyl and still today it is my absolute favorite Christmas Album! I was hoping to get it on CD for posterity sake! Thanks!

Too fat for the chimney is a great tune...wish it was on this EP. I do have a vinyl of this full album in relatively good condition...but no means to get it uploaded to the computer.
