Christmas In July-The Twelfth Day

Hello?  Anybody still out there?  I've been gone for a bit, but I'm back again.  Got too busy there with some company that came into town, first with getting the place cleaned up and then with hanging out and doing touristy stuff with my guests.  But here I am with five more songs for you to download and enjoy.  I'm going to try and keep going for a while now, and I may have to go out into August, but we'll see.  Anyhow, let's see what sort of goodies I have for you this evening.  After such a long wait, I'm sure anything will sound good.  We begin with Ave Maria (the Schubert one) as performed by Montini And His Orchestra from a very early Westminster LP, Music In The Night (Westminster WP 6005, Mono, 1956).  From there we move into Don, Dick 'N Jimmy performing June In January from their album Spring Fever (Crown CLP 5005, Mono, 1957).  Yep, it's the budget label, but the music is still pretty good.  Next up is a track I teased you with earlier, White Christmas by Matt Dennis from another budget label album, Saturday Date With Matt Dennis (Tops LP1596, Mono, 1957).  And that leads into track four, Dance Of The Toy Flutes from Evening At Pops by Arthur Fiedler And The Boston Pops Orchestra (Polydor PD 5032, Stereo, 1972).  That's a pretty late date for stuff on this blog, don't ya think?  Bringing up the rear is a track from the great Hugo Winterhalter and that album I've shared with you quite a bit this July, A Season For My Beloved (ABC-Paramount ABCS-447, Stereo, 1963).  This time around it's Summer Green & Winter White.  All good stuff and I think you'll enjoy them.  Here's the download link.  I'll try not to wait so long between posts next time.  Thanks for all the concerned comments on that last post.  Sorry I didn't give you any warning about my absence.

Question:  Do any single women ever drop by here?  I'm lonely.  Drop me a line.  I'm serious.  :)

I'm not single, nor a woman, but darned glad to see you back! Was getting a little concerned...

Whoa - the return of Ern! And a welcome one it is!

I'd introduce you to my wife's sister, but she's married.

Always great to see you doing your XMas thing.

I always appreciate your stuff, so much so that, despite being neither available nor female, I'll 'take one for the team' if it will help.

Ernie, thanks for all the great music and pics. You are awesome! I'm a little late, but nevertheless fit the description.
