This Is The End

Well, it's been a good season, but all good things must come to an end.  I suppose I could go on for a few more days, but today is Epiphany, or Little Christmas, or The Twelfth Day of Christmas, whatever you want to call it.  I figure it's time to put away all these albums, clean up the mess around here, and try to get a little more exercise.  Hopefully I can do this again next year, but we'll have to wait and see, I can make no promises.  Thank you for all the comments, if you made a request, I hope I was able to get to it.  If you sent me an email and never got a response, sorry.  There just aren't enough hours in the day, and you may have asked for something I couldn't give you.  I don't have anything special for the last day, just something that was mentioned over at The 'Fa that I happened to have handy, I just had to scan in the gatefold.  It's not a particular favorite of mine, in fact I don't think I listened to it all the way through after I recorded it.  But I know it's a favorite of a lot of people, and some people don't even know it exists.  So to wrap up the 2016 Christmas season, here is Truman Capote Reading His A Christmas Memory From "Breakfast At Tiffany's" (United Artists UAL 9001, Mono, 1959).

Thanks and have a good year.

Ernie said...

I was pretty proud of myself, I didn't miss a single day between Thanksgiving and now, except for Christmas Day itself. First time I've ever gone the whole season!

Buster said...

And with multiple shares on each day as well!

Many thanks, Ernie. As I've mentioned, I found particular satisfaction and enjoyment in the vintage music this season (am listening to music boxes as we speak) and I'm among the many who are grateful for your hard work and generosity this, and every year. Wishing you all the best in 2017, and should the opportunity arise, a festive holiday-sharing-season next Xmas. Be well!

Thank you Ernie for a generous, lively, interesting and entertaining year of shares. I was fearing this was all something of the past, but then you surprised us with what matched if not surpassed your "glory years" of 2007-2010. I have not often enough expressed my appreciation for your hard work, care, and enthusiasm, so I'd like to do that now. You're in a league of one. I can't wait until November.

Hi, Ernie...yes, I know you just finished up your posts for this past Christmas season...however, there is a Dinah Shore song that is eluding me, & I hope you might be able to help...unfortunately, it's on one of those dastardly ol' 78RPM singles you love so much...it's the b-side to her version of "The Merry Christmas Polka" (which is readily available)...the song is "The Star Of Bethlehem," and it's from 1949. If you've already posted it, and I just missed it, would you mind informing me where it is? If not, and you both have the single as well as the time, would you mind putting it up sometime? I'd really appreciate it. Thanks again!

Shhh, don't tell anybody!

...not a word...:0)...thanks!

...not to be a greedy grubby jerk, but what's the possibility of Harry Babbitt's versions of "All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth" and "Here Comes Santa Claus"? Not right now, of course...same as before, "if you have them and if you have time." And this is the LAST request...promise...:0)
