Silver Bells

Took forever, but here is today's new share for you.  I was flipping through the stacks of stuff that I had recorded and this happy Santa Claus caught my eye.  You guys needed another polka record, I figured, and an oberek never hurt anyone.  It wasn't until I pulled the LP from the sleeve that I realized the job in front of me.  Half a dozen pieces of paper came out of the sleeve with the record, and I had to scan them all in for you.  Now you have a fairly complete catalog of releases on the Stella label, as well as an order card, an envelope, a biography of Bernie and I think an order form for some sheet music and books.  Don't say I never did anything nice for you!  In addition to all that, you get some nice music.  And those abrupt edits near the end of most of the songs?  That's on the vinyl, folks.  I'm not sure what effect they are trying to achieve there, perhaps they wanted you to think these were live tracks?  I don't know, but it's disconcerting if you aren't expecting it.  Anyhow, this is Bernie Witkowski And His Silver Bell Orchestra-The Christmas Record (Stella S-LP 914, Mono).
