Old Andy

Today's Single Of The Day (tm) is Andy Williams first record on the Cadence label.  I'd never heard of anyone start with a Christmas record, but that's what happened here.  Turns out, it didn't go anywhere, and it took Andy a couple of more tries to become the big star he was destined to be.  One side of this single has turned up here and there on CD, but the other side, The Wind, The Sand And The Star has eluded the magic discs for all these years.  I think you'll find it's a great little song that you've most likely never heard before.  Please be my guest and download Andy Williams, Orchestra Conducted By Archie Bleyer-Christmas Is A Feeling In Your Heart b/w The Wind, The Sand And The Star (Cadence 7" 45 RPM 1282, 1955, Mono).

I particularly enjoy your single collections from previous years and hope that you're able to keep them coming this season. Thanks.

I'm starting to think all the best music comes from small records. But that may just be because they're easier to digest. I'll try to keep 'em coming.

Good one! The A-side was written by the composer of Tubby the Tuba. I thought you would want to know that.
