Body Spray?

I seem to be running dangerously low on new shares. I've still got plenty of stuff to go, I just need to work to get the scans mated up with the MP3s, then package them up into sharable ZIP files.  Good thing the weekend is fast approaching.  Thankfully, I'm not out yet.  This record is a nice little Christmas story about a kid who dreams big for Christmas.  I first heard the story as told by Bing Crosby, even recorded it one year to share, only to discover it's on CD.  So when I found this one, I was excited.  It looks to have once been paired with a book, but the book is long gone.  Other than that, I couldn't find much information about it at all on the internet.  Perhaps one of you will know something about it, if so, please leave me a comment.  For your downloading pleasure tonight, I present An Axe, An Apple And A Buckskin Jacket (Columbia Book & Record Library CC 24508, Stereo).

Is this the same story as is on the Bing Crosby album? I too found the Bing album and was going to share it until I found that it was on CD (was surprised at that). And, my record has a glob of goo on it that I haven't been able to remove..

Looking forward to listening to this - thanks Ernie!

Yep, same as Bing. Same script even. Frank Luther is great, but having heard Bing first, that's my favorite.

I just knew this would have something to do with Johnny Appleseed! Thanks!

I've been looking for this one for years - can't thank you enough Ernie!

Thanks a million! I grew up listening to this and have not been able to find it. Our family has been enjoying it this Christmas and all the memories of past ones.

Ernie--are you still out there?? I listened to this on my superman record player as a child... Over and over. I am just trying to track it down for MY little girl and found your blog. Don't think this link still works... You don't happen to still have this file, do you?? I'm hoping for a Christmas miracle here!

Found the same blog where YOU found "An axe, an apple, and a buckskin jacket" years ago... But the link is gone. Any chance you have that file still? I'd be eternally grateful!
