Christmas In July (In August)-The Twenty-Seventh Day

Number 27, here we go!  Track one tonight is In The Vinter, perhaps best described as an ethnic comedy performed by Oscar Brand with Dave Sear from the LP Absolute Nonsense (Riverside RLP 12-825, Mono, 1958).  Short but sweet.  The second song is the ubiquitous Skaters Waltz, this time performed by the Continental Orchestra from Waltz Time (RCA Camden CAL-149, Mono, 1957).  My ear tells me that this was recorded much earlier than 1957, but that's when it got put onto this record.  Track Three is a version of Away In A Manger by The Choir Of Malvern College Chapel With The Choir Of Hillstone School, Organist-Nigel Hancock from their album Music From Malvern Chapel (Wealden Studios (UK) Ws 175. Stereo, 1978).  I think this is the third share from this LP, and I'm not done yet.  Track four is a long Christmas Carol Sing-A-Long by Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra-Julius Rudel, Musical Director, from the album Christmas In Concert And More... (Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra/Buffalo Savings Bank (No Catalog Number), Stereo, 1979).  You've heard from this LP before, but this is the last time it shows up this year.  Last is a little something called The Great Snowman.  Unfortunately, it's not the kind of snowman that you might find at Christmas time, but I decided to throw it in anyway.  This is by The Geezinslaw Brothers and their LP The Geezinslaw Brothers And Chubby (Capitol ST 2885, Stereo, 1968).  That's it for tonight.  I think this makes 7 posts in a row, or at least something pretty close, or not at all.  I'm really trying to get this thing closed out.  Here's the download link, see you next time!
