The Return Of Christmas In July-Day 20

How about that? 20 days!  We're getting there.  Let's jump right in.

Track one is Six White Boomers, including the spoken part you've probably never heard and the usual song about the six kangaroos that pull Santa's sleigh when he has to visit Australia in the middle of the summer.  As you probably know, this is by Rolf Harris, and I pulled it from the LP This Is Rolf Harris (EMI (Australia) OSX 7861, Mono).  Good, classic stuff.

Speaking of Australia, track two is The Bells Of St. Mary's by Slim Dusty And His Bushlanders from the LP Aussie Sing Song (Columbia (Australia) OSX 7668, Mono, 1962).  More good stuff from Down Under.

Heading back to the good ole USA, here's Duane Eddy-Arranged And Conducted By Marty Paich performing Long Lonely Days Of Winter from Lonely Guitar (RCA Victor LPM-2798, Mono, 1964).  Twangy!

Track four is Bells And Little Bells, a nice little track by David Carroll And His Orchestra from the excellent LP RePercussion (Mercury MG 20389, Mono, 1958). I really like this song for some reason.

Track five is a rerun from years past, but a good one.  The McGuire Sisters sing The Cactus Christmas Tree, taken not from their Christmas LP, but from Children's Holiday (Coral CRL 57097, Mono, 1957).

And that's it.  Nothing too long and involved tonight.  Here's the download link, see ya'll tomorrow.
