More Piano (No Forte)


Continuing on with the piano sharity tonight, here's a record I shared with you back in 2005 as my very first Christmas record share here at Ernie (Not Bert). Couple of years later I revisited this one, actually cutting it into tracks for the first time. Once you give it a listen, you'll find that's it's really side-long medleys of tinkly cocktail hour piano that are either something you're going to love or hate, there is no middle ground. So if that sounds like something you might enjoy, please download the individual tracks from George Feyer's Echoes Of Christmas (Vox VX25-010, Mono, 1955) or the two sides all in big long tracks, George Feyer's Echoes Of Christmas (Vox VX25-010, 1955), it's your choice.

1. Introduction
2. White Christmas
3. Anderson: Sleighride
4. Adeste Fideles (O Come All Ye Faithful)
5. Waldteufel: Skaters Waltz
6. Away In A Manger
7. Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer
8. O Little Town Of Bethlehem
9. Jingle Bells
10. O Tannenbaum
11. Deck The Halls With Boughs Of Holly
12. O Tannenbaum-Reprise
13. God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen
14. Winter Wonderland
15. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
16. Noel, Noel
17. Tchaikovsky: Troika (From "The Seasons")
18. Tchaikovsky: Dance Of The Sugar-Plum Fairy (From "The Nutcracker")
19. Silent Night, Holy Night

Oh, and if you want a couple of bonus tracks, check out this post and this one from Christmas In July.

Good News And Bad-I received an email from George Feyer's daughter-in-law last night, and she tells me that the family is in the process of making all his recordings available for legal download. That's the good news. The bad news is that I can't share it with you anymore, but I think the good outweighs the bad. So keep checking back and hopefully I'll have some information about when and where you can download some tasty George Feyer.
