Here's another part of my unpopular series of two tracks with some linking theme for your Tuesday enjoyment. I didn't put a lot of time or effort into it this week, I'm afraid. What I've got for you is just two versions of the theme from The Mickey Mouse Club. Which is pretty interesting, I guess, if you remember that show. Hopefully I won't get targeted by the mouse for sharing these off-beat versions... Version one is the oldest, and comes from a great LP called How To Get The Most Out Of Your Stereo (Warner Bros XS 1400, 1960), a sampler LP from the early days of both Warner Brothers Records and stereo. (I shared the cover from this one with you earlier, and I think I mentioned there that it's on beautiful gold vinyl.) Oh, the artist is Frank Comstock And His Orchestra, and he titles the track Theme From "Mickey Mouse Club". The other version, from 18 years later, but still 29 years ago, is George Wright, from George Wright Plays The Chicago Theatre Organ (Century Records CRDD 1060, 1978), where it's titled Mickey Mouse March. Dig it! (And don't forget last week...)

It's a couple of days late, but I'm sure you'll find it worth the wait. Thank you to those who wished me well while I was ill. I was just a little sick to the stomach, but it was enough that I didn't want to sit here by the turntable for a couple of hours. For your download pleasure, I'm proud to present the third in this series of twelve recording from 50 years ago. This time, the music is from Hollywood, some of which I am familiar with, others I've never heard of. This is probably the best one so far in the series. At least I know more of the songs. (I'm secretly looking forward to volume 10, Very Hi-Fi Organ, but that's a long way off.) Please be my guest and download Ronnie Ogden And His Orchestra-Hits From Hollywood-Vol. 3 For Hi-Fi Living (RCA Custom RAL-1003, 1957). If you're new to all this, follow the links backwards...

Are you ready for a couple more pictures? This week features a tiger at Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Florida. Oh, and the shot below is from EPCOT in Orlando, Florida. I know you can't really tell where it's at, but trust me, that's where I was when I took the shot.
