Any Accordion

At first glance, this is not the sort of Christmas release that you might find interesting.I don't think a lot of people would give it a second glance if they spotted it in a stack of records.  But I'm not like a lot of people, I have to take a closer look.  Flipping it over, I saw a woman with an accordion, and into the pile of Christmas To Share it went!  If you're a fan of accordion music, mixed with a little organ, calliope, harp, sax, cello, flute, even violin, then I'm sure you'll dig this.  And really, where else are you going to get music like this other than Ernie (Not Bert)?  So show a little love and download Sharon Parker-Songs Of Christmas (Rev. Donald L. Parker 17813/17814 (Baxter, West Virginia), Mono).

1. Joy To The World
2. O Come All Ye Faithful
3. Hark The Herald Angels Sing
4. Ring, Merry Bells
5. Silent Night! Holy Night
6. Away In The Manger
7. Go Tell It On The Mountain
8. Oh! Little Town Of Bethlehem
9. It Came Upon A Midnight Clear
10. Angels From The Realms Of Glory
11. The First Noel
12. Oh! Holy Night
13. We Three Kings Of Orient Are

Ernie -- If you are interested, this one is custom LP pressed by Rite Custom Pressing (9745 Lockland Road Cincinnati 15, Ohio) back in 1966.

Rite pressed at least one other LP for the Parkers... a 1969 tribute to Paul Goggin, a soldier who was killed in Vietnam. This one was matrix # 25007 (side A) and 25008 (side B).

Wow the spectrograph for this looks like a car windshield in a blizzard.

Thanks Ernie!
