Ramona Returns

Another one that I had forgotten about, first shared in 2007, remastered in 2012, and re-encoded at a higher bitrate tonight, this is more organ and chime music that you can love.  And if that's not enticing enough, I also threw in both sides of a single, only one track of which is duplicated on the LP!  No artwork for the single, I'm afraid.  I don't think I ever scanned it and I have no idea where it is currently.  I remember a fan of the blog sent it to me after I shared the LP and I was pretty excited. I think it was pressed up for a bank, I forget.  I do have scans of two different covers for the LP, one of which enclosed a record pressed on red vinyl.  Cool stuff!  This is Ramona Gerhard At The Mighty Wurlitzer Organ-Christmas In Hi-Fi (Soma MG 1202 (Red Vinyl), Mono).

1. Medley: Silent Night; O Tannenbaum; We Three Kings; Deck The Halls With Holly
2. Ave Maria
3. Christmas Song
4. Parade Of The Wooden Soldiers
5. Medley: O' Little Town Of Bethlehem; Jolly Old St. Nicholas; God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen; We Wish You A Merry Christmas
6. White Christmas
7. Sleigh Ride
8. Noel, Noel

And the single:

1. O Holy Night
2. Parade Of The Wooden Solciers

Another great album cover and a good read on the back, KNX 1070 is still around, although it's all news now. And it was interesting to hear them mention Pasadena, Balboa, and Newport, places were familiar with. Thanks!

Love that colored vinyl. The alternative cover is much better than the one with the artist peering out of an ornament.

Hey Ernie, I need to chime in with my thanks for the fabulous job you are doing so far this year! I think I'm caught up on the downloading, but far far far from being caught up on the listening. It's an embarrassment of riches from you, thank you so much! Those within hearing tend to think I'm a little bit off somehow, so then I can blast some of Little Marcy's big hits at them and they can know for sure. All thanks to you!

i blasted some little marcy at them and they all went away.

Ernie: I did a search and found the cover for the 45 at this blog: http://somelocalloser.blogspot.com/2012/12/ramona-gerhard.html

It was indeed a bank giveaway.

Yep, that's the guy who I got the single from. :)
