Christmas In July 2007-Day 11

A real quickie tonight, I've got too much other stuff to do. Two versions of Greensleeves, or, if you prefer, What Child Is This. They are from Scarlet Ribbons (Columbia CS 8146) by Michel LeGrand And His Orchestra, and No Blues On This Cruise (Mercury MG 20308) by Eddie Layton. The third track is the real winner here, Baby, It's Cold Outside by Steve & Eydie from We Got Us (ABC-Paramount ABC-300, 1960). Is this doesn't make your bones chilly, nothing will. One of my very favorite Christmas In July tracks last year was from Eydie Gorme, so if you like this one, you'll love that one! And by a rather odd coincidence, on this date last year, I gave you a track from Steve Lawrence, along with Yuji Takizawa and Ian And Sylvia. You should go get that one, too. Enjoy!

I don't think I'd heard this Steve and Eydie version before. I didn't realize they sang it, although of course any male-female duo would have covered it at some point, I guess. I thought they just ripped it off with "That Holiday Feeling".
