Christmas In July 2009-Day The Twenty Ninth

Day twenty nine. Not far now...

The first two tracks for tonight are from a record designed for pre-school through grade four, so if you aren't in that age group, you might get bored with these. The two tracks are The Christmas Bell Story and I Love The Winter by Kathy Lecinski from her album Look At The Holidays (A Good Apple Record PB 1586, 1982). What can I say? It is what it is.

From kiddie records we go to a little Urban Contemporary, or at least contemporary to the Eighties. How about a little Ray Parker Jr with Christmas Time Is Here from the album Chartbusters (Arista AL8-8266, 1984). Yes, this is the LP that features Ray in the big Ghostbusters symbol and of course features that song. (I for one don't think it sounds anything like a Huey Lewis song...)

Track four is a nice piano version of Greensleeves by John Curtis and the LP Moonlight (Whitehall WHS 40019). I think this is my last version of this song for the year. Aren't you happy?

Track five, The Skaters' Waltz by The Strings Of The Symphonia Royale. I think the longer the name of the orchestra, the more likely it is to not be a real group. Hmmmm. Anyhow, this is from the album The World's Most Beautiful Waltzes (Grand Award GA 33-376). Got a little Enoch Light connection in that one, I think.

The last two tracks are going to be a mystery. The titles are Kris Kringle and Stille Nacht (Silent Night), but that's all I can tell you about them. Same deal as back in December when I couldn't tell you about a track I was sharing. I don't want to bring the weight of the World down on my humble little blog. They're worth your time, trust me.

That's it. Seven more tracks. Here's the download link, see you tomorrow.

Yeah, I don't know where they got the Ghostbusters - I Want a New Drug connection. I don't hear it either.
