Before you even think about downloading this share, I want you to head on over to Big 10-Inch Record, say hi to my friend Buster, and download his Christmas share of Dorothy Collins' super-rare, never seen, extremely good, full-length Christmas record. It's titled Won't You Spend Christmas With Me, and did I say it's really good? Buster shared it with me privately two years ago (after I had shared this very EP), and I enjoyed it. As I do with things I like, I tried to find a copy for myself. And it's been two years of miserable failure. You just cannot find this record anywhere. Not GEMM, not eBay, not thrift stores, nowhere. So you really should go over there and download it from Buster's blog, because you aren't going to find it on the shelf at FYE. And you should ad Big 10-Inch to you regular reading list. Always lots of good shares over there. And plenty of Christmas, if my guess is correct.
Now that I've got that out of my system, here's a little EP that Dorothy Collins recorded some time later, I think, for Sinclair Oil, I think, on which she shares credit with her then-husband, the great Raymond Scott. Nothing on here is nearly so good as the stuff on the LP above, but it's nice to have. (Dorothy had a couple of Christmas singles on Coral as well, including Mr. Santa & The Twelve Gifts of Christmas.) So to help complete your collection, please download Dorothy Collins-Season's Greetings In Song (A Top Rank Artist 117058/117059).
