Christmas In July 2019-Part 34

It's Sunday, it's bedtime, what else are you going to do besides listen to ten Christmas songs?  That's what I thought, nothing!

1. Jean Martinon Conducting The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra-Les Patineurs-Duet from Le Cid-Ballet Music/Les Patineurs (The Skaters)-Ballet (London CS 6058, Stereo, 1958).  The next part of this very long ballet.

2. Northwestern College 1971 Male Chorus-Arnold O. Lehmann, Conductor-Little Drummer Boy from Northwestern College, Watertown, Wisconsin, 1971 Male Chorus (Recorded Publications Company AZ 83471/83472, Stereo, 1971). Composer not listed, so hopefully Harry Simeone didn't get any money off of this one.

3. Sonny Salsbury-O Come, O Come Emmanuel from Song For All Seasons (Word WST-8810, Stereo, 1979).  This is awful late a date for me, but it's forty years ago.  I feel so old sometimes.

4. The Johnny Mann Singers-Snow from Midnight Special (Liberty L2S 5204 For Columbia Record Club SCR-3, Stereo, 1968). A great version of a song you don't hear very often.

5. The Salvation Army Band; Holz, Conductor-The Spirit Of Christmas (Christmas Carol) from Introduction To Stereo (Westminster) (Westminster WSS-1, Stereo, 1958).  I wonder out if I've shared the album that this track was pulled from for this sampler? I bet it's one of the tracks on this album though the titles are slightly different.

6. Enoch Light And The Light Brigade-Summer Me, Winter Me (From "Picasso Summer") from The Best Of The Movie Themes 1970 (Project 3 PR 5046SD, Stereo, 1969).  I'm sure I bought this one for the cover.  I'm sure everyone buys it for the cover.

7. Hugo Winterhalter-The Things We Did Last Summer from A Season For My Beloved (ABC-Paramount ST 90168 (ABC Records, Mfd. By Capitol Records), Stereo, 1963).  How many more tracks do I have from this one?

8. The Camarata Contemporary Chamber Orchestra-Traineau (The Sleigh Ride) from The Electronic Spirit Of Erik Satie Featuring The Moog Synthesizer (Deram XDES 18066, Stereo, 1972).  This one is pretty cool!

9. Unknown Artist-Up On The Housetop (Excerpt) from Superior New Works For Concert Band-Vol. XVII Advanced Edition (Jenson Publications 2xLP JP-6500, Stereo, 1985).  Why is this demo recording listed as an excerpt when all of them are technically excerpts from the dull recording?  I think this one was a medley with some other non-Christmas songs, so that note is actually from me.

10. Austin C. Lovelace-Von Himmel Hoch from Organ Concert (Everest SDBR 3120, Stereo).  Some German Christmas music to finish up the day.

And that's it for this post and for the day.  Hope there was something in there that was worth your trouble.  Here's the download link.  Came back tomorrow for more.

Caught up downloading! For now, anyway... So much good stuff.....

Wow, I didn't know that Tootie Camarata made a Moog synthesizer album - of Erik Satie, yet! Cool.

Der Bingle-Did it let you download them all at once, or did you have to wait hours between each one? I don't know how MEGA handles such things.

Buster-It was the Seventies, a very weird time for everyone.

Der Bingle said...

I was able to download all of them together, no instituted delays from MEGA. The download process seemed a lot better with some changes MEGA made to their UI since last year. No interrupt pop-ups, clear and easy download links. All was good. And my download speed was cruisin' last night - I could start two and by the time I could get to a third the first had finished.

Good to hear, thanks!

I'd like to second Der Bingle's comments--the download process is MUCH easier this year. I really like your posts, so I would slog through the old process if I had to, but Mega has massively streamlined the process.

I don't know if they're making it easier in a bid to be more legit, or because I had to break down and pay for an account. Glad it's easier for everyone.
