It's A Sunshine Day!


Guess what classic Christmas LP is now available for legal download here in the USofA?  Yep, it's The Three Suns 1959 opus, A Ding Dong Dandy Christmas!  No sign of a CD release, unfortunately, but you never know.  They released a huge batch of classic old Christmas records recently, from a handful of different labels, about half of which were things I'd shared out before.  One of them was completely new to me, though. John Facenda-The Nativity appears to be a big release from 1958 with a fancy gatefold and a bound-in book.  I want an original of that one! Anyone want to hook me up?  :)

I have that one but have never shared it. It seems to me that I couldn't get a good transfer of it or maybe I didn't feel like scanning the bound-in book, probably the latter.

Facenda was the voice of NFL films way back when, as I recall.

Well, if you see another copy in decent shape, don't forget about your old pal from Florida. I'd be willing to trade a copy of this beautiful Christmas at Radio City gatefold for it. O-la-la!
