On The First Day Of December


Since it's the first day of December, I thought I'd give you something that many folks have been looking for. This is one of three Christmas releases (that I know of) from Eddie Dunstedter, none of which have made it to CD yet. However, tracks from them have shown up on many compilations, not the least of which is Christmas Cocktails. I'm sharing out two of the three, and here is the first. Please download Eddie Dunstedter-The Bells Of Christmas (Capitol ST 1264, c. 1959). More organ than you can shake a stick at!

Correction-I screwed up track 12. I truncated over half the track for some reason. It's a medley of two songs, and I must have edited it after the first one without knowing. If this is your first time dropping by, the download shown above is correct. If any of the 66 people who already downloaded this record drop by, you can get just the corrected track 12 here. Sorry about the screw-up.

Ooooooh! I just picked up a vinyl copy of this. Haven't had the chance to listen to it yet, so this'll be awesome - I can listen today at work. Thanks!

I was just looking up my great grandfather's name and there and I ran in to your sight. I grew up listening to this album during the holidays. It's a very special album. Anyways, thank you for that I needed it.

Take Care!

Eddie Dunstedter appears to have passed away in 1974. I don't know any of the details, I'm afraid. And the downloads should return this Christmas season, knock on wood!
