Doodle

Here's a 78 for you real quick.  I'm too tired to post very much tonight, so I hope this holds you over for the evening.  Sam Ulano was a drummer who became famous for teaching others to drum and left very little in the way of recorded work, at least under his own name.  This 78 (which was also available on 45, but I found the 78) came out in 1955 and is quite the hoot!  I think the sound is just fine, so please download and give a listen to Sam Ulano (and Santa Claus!)-Santa And The Doodle-Li-Boop b/w The Story Of Santa Claus (MGM 10" 78 RPM 11898, Mono, 1955).  If it sounds familiar, you've probably heard Art Carney (Norton!) perform the same song.

Sam Ulano, what an amazing personality, performer, and story teller....Thanks for sharing this.

He sort of has the Brooklyn (Art Carney) accent.
I think that's the only way this can be performed.
I wish Daws Butler sang this as Yogi Bear. Wouldn't that've been a kick?

The sound IS just fine--your 78 source sounds better than the audio from my 45 source, so a nice upgrade. Thanks Ernie!

Loved this obscure one, thanks for digging it out!

Ernie, played this for a friend of mine who is an avid Christmas music collector, says this is Art Carney,he has the Art Carney record of these tunes. What do you think, or do you already know and were testing us?

Art Carney recorded the same song at about the same time, but this ain't that. The flipside of Art's recording was a hipster reading of Twas The Night Before Christmas.

OK, I listened to both a and b sides of Art Carney and Sam Ulano and they are definitely not the same person. Thanks for clearing that up for me.
