Christmas In July 2011-Day 29

Coming down to the wire here.  Gotta keep my nose to the grindstone and get this stuff out.  Here we go with tonight's shares.

1. Nutcracker Suite, a rerun from Les Brown and His Band Of Renown from the LP Concert Modern (Capitol ST959, Stereo, 1958).  At least this time I found it in stereo.

2. The First Noel by The Lutheran Seminary Chorus, Henry Veld-Conductor, from To The Glory Of God... (Delta XCTV 96965/96966, Pressed by Columbia Record Productions, Mono).  This may be the last of the church group recordings I have for the year.  At the very least, it's the last one I have from this particular group.

3. A Ceremony Of Carols, OP. 28 (A Grouping Of Five Carols) by The Augustana Choir-Henry Veld Conductor, from Augustana Choir (Word W-4005-LP, Red Vinyl, Mono, 1956).  Notice anything similar between this and the last track, like maybe the same guy leading the group?

4. Hallelujah Chorus by the Trinidad Tripoli Steel Band from Liberace Presents The Trinidad Tripoli Steel Band (Arc ACS 5032, Stereo, 1969).  This may be the same suys I shared before playing the same song, only released under a different name.  But the Liberace tie-in makes it so much better here, even if it's exactly the same music.

5. Dance Of The Sugar-Plum Fairy by Russ Case And His Orchestra from Dances Wild (Vik (RCA) LX-1085, Mono, 1957).  You saw another track from this LP already this month.

6. Holiday by The Four Freshmen from Voices In Modern (Capitol T522, Mono, 1954).  This is the second track from an LP with the word Modern at the end of it tonight.  Must have been a trend.

7. Sleigh Ride by Eddie Higgins from By Request (Statitas SLP 8079, Stereo, 1986).  The full credits are Eddie Higgins-Piano, Milt Hinton-Bass, Bobby Rosengarden-Drums.

8. Fuyu No Yoru (Winters Night) by 101 Strings Orchestra  from Songs Of The Season In Japan (Alshire S-5019, Stereo).  Last track from this one I have for you.

9. Snowfall, this time by LeRoy Holmes And His Orchestra, featuring a piano solo by Dick Hyman, from Theme Songs Of The Great Swing Bands (MGM E3708, Stereo, 1958).  Dick Hyman must really like this track.  Over the years, I've probably shared out maybe five different versions with his name attached somehow.

10. Toyland by the Roger Wagner Chorale from Victor Herbert On Stage (Capitol W1707, Mono, 1962).  Have I shared this before?  Yes, yes I have.

11. Greensleeves by Roger Williams from the English vinyl With These Hands (London (UK) SAH-R 6065, Stereo, 1959).  Second and final track from this LP, and probably from Roger Williams, at least for the month.

12. Angels We Have Heard On High by Larry Seidel from The Glory Of God's Seasons (Grace Unlimited GU-002, Stereo).  Third and final track from this guy and this LP.

13. The Skaters by The Carnegie Pops Orchestra, Conducted By David Broekman from Carnegie Pops Program (Columbia Masterworks ML 4118, Mono, 1949).  This is going back to one of the first LP records ever released...

14. The Bells Of St. Mary's by Kenny Baker from Song Hits Through The Years (RCA Camden CAL-131, Mono).  Not the first Kenny Baker track this month.

15.  The Wooden Soldier And The China Doll by Joe "Fingers" Carr And His Swingin' String Band from his self-titled album (Capitol T1217, Mono, 1959).  Is this a rerun?  I'm thinking maybe I've shared this before, but from a comp, not this LP.  Or maybe I passed it up without realizing the Christmas possibility.  Oh, well...

That's it for tonight.  See you tomorrow.  Oh, wait, you probably want the download link.  There you go.

Can I just say how happy I've been with the sound quality of this years shares?  ClickRepair really works miracles with music from vinyl!
