Christmas In Tijuana-Part 2

What's that I hear you saying? You want more of that swinging sound from south of the border? Not a problem, here's another LP from the Mexicali Brass. They sure know how to sell some albums, don't they? That last one was great, but this lovely lady could sit atop my turntable any day! But they didn't always have their priorities straight, though. There's a credit on this LP cover for the Christmas goodies around her, but no credit for the model herself. What a shame... But enough about her, why don't you go download The Mexicali Brass-Christmas With The Mexicali Brass (Crown CST-10). As much as you may like the lady above, evidently some folks didn't. This same music was reissued a couple of times with the two different covers shown below, both times just called Jingle Bells (Custom CS-10). Not as exciting, are they?

Update 2007: The Mexicali Brass stuff is now available on iTunes and elsewhere for download. So no more free lunch here. Go there and get it legit. How do I link to iTunes? Hmmmm.....

I have this one, the one with the red cover (bottom). Mine was pretty scratchy so I'm glad to "upgrade" it! :) THANK YOU! :)

This cover (the low cut girl) was borrowed for an 80s-90s punk-alternative Christmas compilation called "Happy Birthday, Baby Jesus" This is going back a few years for me, but I believe it was first on 10 inch vinyl and then on a cd. I have both, deep in the archives. Dr. M

Dr. Mark-You are absolutely correct! I had forgotten all about that. I dug down into the archives, and found the CD release for Happy Birthday, Baby Jesus, and it's the same picture, with a little bit different colors. The two 10" vinyl releases nabbed their covers from Lawrence Welk and Patty page for volumes one and two, respectively. Thanks for reminding me! Maybe this deserves it's own post...
