The Return Of Christmas In July-Day 19

Here's 15 more minutes of Christmas fun for you in the middle of July.  It's hot outside, but it's nice and frosty around here.

Track one is The Virgin Mary by The Bek Brothers.  I recorded this from the LP BEK-oning (Cuca K-1120, Mono, 1964).  Really nice version of the folk tune.

Track number two is another track from Lawrence Welk, His Accordion And Orchestra, Rag Doll, and it's from that same old Nimble Fingers (Coral 2x7" 45 RPM RC-82005, Mono, 1955) album. I think this is the last track I pulled from that album.

Track three is from another Ernie, Ernie Freeman, doing I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm from Ernie Freeman Plays Irving Berlin (Imperial (Victor, Japan) LP 9022, Mono, 1956).  Nice warm version here. No idea how I stumbled across a Japanese pressing of this LP.

Track four is I Like Holidays, sort of a statement of fact for us here at the blog, performed by Tom Glazer With Jeffrey Alden-Orchestra Conducted By Tony Mottola from the album I Like Holidays! (RCA Camden CAL-1055, Mono, 1964).  This guy really loves holidays! More goodies to come from this one.

Finally, track five is Hallelujah Chorus For Orchestra by 101 Strings, pulled from the radio promo LP American Holidays/American Holidays And Special Occasions (Special Radio Copy, Mono).  Not a bad version, but I miss the voices.

That's it, five and out.  Here's the download link, see you all tomorrow.
