26 Days Of Christmas-Day 14


I couldn't resist this track after I first put it on the turntable. It was only later that I realized it was the same people who put out all the cheap "Compatible Sound" LPs that I just shared with you. This is a great bit of infectious Sixties female vocal that I would never in a million years compare to the stuff on those albums. But here it is, I can't deny it's greatness. I'm sure you'll enjoy it to. Here is part 14 of my 26 Days Of Christmas collection, Connie Landers-I'm Gonna Be Warm This Winter from the Hit Records single No. 46. You never know what's in the grooves until you put the needle in there.

Ernie, the HIT record label was known for releasing cover versions, or sound-a-likes by unknown artists. This is an obvious attempt of covering Connie Francis' version of this song.

This was a Connie Francis song? I had no idea. I need to get out more and quit posting all this Christmas music...

The reason I love HIT is because their covers run the gamut from awful to quite good.

Their inconsistent quality makes for an exciting adventure--you don't know if your HIT purchase is going to shine or suck.

Whatever I just typed....
