The Dregs

I was surprised to find that I still have a handful of shares alive at RapidShare.  RapidShare used to be my file host of choice, but they went downhill in a spectacular fashion in the past couple of years, so most of the files I had hosted over there went the way of the dinosaurs.  But I guess a few of them got enough downloads now and then that they haven't been deleted.  Looks like it's about half Christmas and half, umm, what's that other kind of music?  Oh, yeah, not-Christmas.  Anyhow, here's a list of what's available there.  Some of it may be old versions or non-remastered versions, so take it for what it's worth.

Randy Carlos-Makin' Whoopee Cha Cha Cha
Ronnie Ogden-Hits From Hollywood
Malcolm Lockyer-We're Having A Party
Don Swan-Hot Cha Cha
Malcolm Lockyer-A Lazy Afternoon
Don Amore-Latin Holiday
Jack Say-These Foolish Things
Ethel Smith-Christmas Music (2010 Remaster)
Hill Bowen-Love On Broadway
Jocelyn McNeil-Very Hi-Fi Organ
The Littlest Angel-Lullaby Of Christmas
Hill Bowen-I Married An Angel
George Wright-Merry Christmas
Jack Say-The Girl That I Marry
The Ray Charles Singers-Here We Come A-Caroling
Tony Osbourne-Hands Across The Table
The Pied Pipers (Et. Al.)-Favorite Christmas Carols
Marimba Chiapas-Cha Cha Cha Volume 4
Nelson Riddle-Avon Wishes You A Happy Holiday
Santa Claus Conquers The Martians
Hill Bowen-I Could Have Danced All Night
The Moog Machine-Christmas Becomes Electric
Tony Osbourne-A Trip To Romance

Wow, some of those things I haven't thought about for years, especially the non-Christmas stuff.  Quite a surprise to see that almost the entire Music For Hi-Fi Living series is still there.  Wait, I missed one, looks like the whole set of 12 is still there.  Cool!  I need to reshare those someday in a new post.  Anyhow, grab these things while they survive, RapidShare is sure to delete them before Christmas rolls around next year.

Thanks for "Christmas Becomes Electric" by The Moog Machine. A match for "Switched on Santa", which is available over at http://www.jeffco.ca/christmas

The style of CBE is very traditional. SOS is more pop sounding.
