What's An Ironstring?


Some kind soul reminded me of this record in one of their comments. When I first started sharing Christmas music last year, this was on my list of things I wanted to get out there. in fact, it was at the top of my list! But it's on CD. That's not a bad thing mind you, that means you can get a beautiful copy of it, and hopefully some of the money works it's way back to the artist or their families. Well, maybe. But you really need to go out and get yourself a copy of this CD right now. Go, go, go, I'll wait. This is Ira Ironstrings (aka Alvino Rey)-Ira Ironstrings Plays Santa Claus (Warner Brothers 1339, 1959). There's a little more info about this in my post last year, but trust me, you can't go wrong with this music.

Good news for fans, bad news for blog....

This one's on CD. I got mine last year and it sounds great!

Thanks for the tip, King, but I don't think you read all the way through... I just threw up a picture and linked to a place to buy the CD. I like to support the artists where I can.
