The Return Of Christmas In July-Day 13

Lucky number 13!

We begin with Bob Wills and Tommy Duncan With The Texas Playboys and their version of a song that previously showed up here in an instrumental, Snow Deer.  This is from the LP Mr. Words & Mr. Music (Liberty LST 7194, Stereo, 1961).  Not sure how holiday sounding this is, but it has the word Snow in the title...

Track two is The Christmas Wine by The Voices Of The Accademia Monteverdiana-Music Composed And Conducted By John Barry from the soundtrack to the film The Lion In Winter (Columbia Masterworks OS 3250, Stereo, 1968).  Interesting.

And speaking of The Lion In Winter, track three is The Lion In Winter by Sandy Nelson from Rebirth Of The Beat (Imperial LP-12424, Stereo, 1969).  I doubt if this is anything like the version from the film.

Track four is version of Ave Maria by Connie Francis taken from her Kennedy tribute LP In The Summer Of His Years (MGM E4210, Mono, 1963).  Solemn stuff.

Track five, the only rerun of the night, and not really a rerun, since it's never been featured during Christmas in July, is Chree-See-Mus by The King Sisters And The Children.  I pulled this from a 45 and shared it years ago, but this one came from a collection of King Family stuff called Love At Home (Capitol DT 2352, Duophonic, 1965).  Such a great song that's never really gained any popularity over the years.

There you have it, three songs for the 13th day.  Here's the download link, enjoy!
