Christmas In July 2011-Day 10

Day 10, one third of the way through the month.  No major complaints so far, or if you have complaints, you're keeping them to yourselves.  Thanks!  Now, what have I got for you tonight?  Let's see...

1. Gloria by our frequent friends, Brookside Jr. High Music Department Concert Chorus from Winter Concert-Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, 1971 (Brookside Jr. High School, Sarasota, Florida, United Sound USR 4026, Stereo, 1971).

2. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town by Drexel Hill Junior High School Orchestra and the album Drexel Hill Junior High School Music Concerts 1965-1966 (Recorded Publications Company Z-71661/2, Mono, 1966).

3. In Bethlehem by The Drexel Park Presbyterian Church Senior Choir.  I don't think this Drexel has any relation to the Drexel Hill above, but that's certainly an odd coincidence.  This is from the album Sacred Reflections (Drexel Park Presbyterian Church, Chicago, Illinois, No Label, No Number, Mono, 1962).

4. Sweet Snow Dear by Johnny Wright.  Quite a change of pace here, but I'm sure you're tired of the middle school musicians.  This is from the LP Hello Vietnam (Decca DL74698, Stereo, 1965).

5. My Favorite Things by Sergio Mendes from Sergio Mendes' Favorite Things (Atlantic SD 8177, Stereo, 1968).  Gettin' better...

6. While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night by St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church Chancel Choir from their self-titled album (Location Recording Service LRS-1262-765, Mono, 1962).  Going back down hill again.

7. Greensleeves by Susan Reed on the harp.  Yes, it's a vocal version, so it really has nothing to do with Christmas, but I liked it so I'm throwing it in here.  This is from her self titled LP (Elektra EKL-116, Mono, 1957).

8. It's Now Winter Day by Tommy Roe, written by Tommy Roe, from the Tommy Roe album no one ever bought, It's Now Winter's Day (ABC ABC-594, Mono, 1967).  Nothing dizzy about this, but it's not too bad.

9.  Joy To The World by The Wesleyan Ringers from The Glory Of Bells (Silver Crest Custom STJ-111882, St. John's United Methodist Church, Hazlet, NJ, Stereo).  Yawn.

That's it, 9 more tracks and now I'm back to being caught up.  I got to get busy recordings some more stuff for you guys.  I've got more stuff recorded than I shared out all last year, but it's never enough, I want to share more, more, more!  Here's the download link, come back tomorrow night for more of the same.

You're an enterprising fellow, for sure.

I wonder why I was never associated with a school or church that issued a Christmas record. They seem to be plentiful.

Is there a problem with Mediafire yesterday and today, or is it me?

Ernie said...

Haven't had any trouble with it. Downloaded some stuff this morning OK. Anybody else out there having an issue?

stubbysfears said...

Just me then, eh?

Michael said...

That Sergio Mendes track rocks! Pretty much makes up for all the Jr. High stuff! LOL

wah! No day 10 for me, either. Well, most of Ernie is better than none at all.

Thanks for the hot weather ho ho ho.

I too am doing a belated snatch 'n grab and find Day #10 link has been zapped. Best guess is track #5 attracted unwelcome attention.

Rather than annoy Ernie with a repost request, who should instead be annoyed with thousands of thank you comments and offers for free beers and to bear his children, and can I ask anyone who did snag this to upload the file somewhere and post a link?
