Christmas In July 2018-Day 24

Twas the night before Christmas In July, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even Ernie, who was tired after a long day of work.  So you'd better enjoy tonight's Christmas shares!

1. Look Around You, It's Christmas Time, one of the best Christmas songs I have shared with you this month, and it's by Bobby Goldsboro from his LP Autumn Of My Life (Sunset SUS-5315, Stereo, 1970).  He may have been a teen idol back in the day, but you've probably never heard this song.  It's good stuff!

2. Sing Softly, Angels by First United Methodist Church, Cullman, Alabama-Sanctuary Choir, from A Celebration In Song (Prestige 80-157, Stereo, 1981).  I thought I was done sharing songs from this one sometime back, but I guess not.

3. Sing We And Chant It by Chamber Singers-Robert Summer, Conductor, from University Of South Florida Chamber Singers And University Singers (Suncoast Recording Service KM 4471, Stereo, 1979).  Another one that seems to keep going and going...

4. Wedding Of The Painted Doll by Leon Berry from Leon Berry At The Giant Wurlitzer Pipe Organ Vol. 4 (Audio Fidelity AFSD 5845, Stereo, 1958).  I think Audio Fidelity was the first label to release stereo records to the general public back in 1958.  Some other, larger labels had plans to release some very soon, but Audio Fidelity jumped out in front of them all.

5-10. More Nutcracker.  These Nutcracker dumps are probably going to continue through the end of the month.  Hope you enjoy them!

And that's that.  Be sure you download the shares tonight for that Bobby Goldsboro track.  It's a winner!

I always liked Bobby Goldsboro - well, except for "Honey" and "Funny Little Clown." And maybe some others. I don' think I have heard this tune.

I agree. I don't know this Bobby track. Looking forward to this, and Yes, I like Honey. Probably the first sad song I ever heard on an oldies station when I was a little boy, and it made me cry. Thank you.
Edit: You're right. That track is a stunner! This month's favorite so far.
