The Return Of Christmas In July-Day 05

What a long, strange Fourth it's been.  Not that I did anything at all today, but still.  Let's just jump right into some music.

First off with some new stuff.  Track one is Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! by Les Brown And His Band Of Renown from the LP All-Weather Music (Coral CRL 57039, Mono, 1956).  Good stuff.

Number two is Chet Baker And The Carmel Strings, a little West Coast jazz take on Christmas Song, from Quietly There (World Pacific WPS-21847, Stereo, 1966). More good stuff.

Number three begins the reruns, but they're good stuff. Latin Snowfall is a bit from the soundtrack to the movie Charade by Henry Mancini And His Orchestra (RCA Victor LSP-2755, Stereo, 1963).  An oldie but a goodie.

Number four is Eddie Fisher With Axel Stordahl And His Orchestra performing Baby, It's Cold Outside from the LP The 21 Academy Award Winning Songs, 1934-1954 (RCA Victor LOC-1024, Mono, 1955).  With so many songs on one LP, it's a bit short, but sweet.

Last, and certainly not least, a nice rerun but this time in Stereo, I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm by Sarah Vaughan & Billy Eckstine-Orchestra Conducted By Hal Mooney, from the LP The Best Of Irving Berlin (Mercury SR-60002, Stereo, 1958).  This LP was originally released only in mono, but I guess they recorded it on multitrack so they could go back and do stereo mixes.  I remember the LP was missing a track that the mono version had, but this was, for my money, the best song on there.  Really good stuff!

All five of these songs were ripped from my vinyl back in 2013, but I never shared them until now.  Here's the download link, enjoy!
