Christmas In July-Part 9

Welcome to day 9! Today features four tracks, two by the same artist, and one song done by three different artists. Confused yet? (Well, so am I. I seem to have accidently deleted some of the tracks I've already shared, so I'm having to download my own shares. What a pain.) Anyhow, the song you get in multiple versions is Our Winter Love, by Robert Maxwell (previously shared performing I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm from the same LP), Bill Pursell (who I know nothing about...) and Felix Slatkin (who has a full Christmas LP that just might show up here come December), who also provides us with the bonus track of the day, Winter's Sadness. You can't say that I'm not trying!

I guess you folks want details on these tracks, so let me see what I can find...

Our Winter Love by Bill Pursell from Our Winter Love-Introducing The Piano Magic Of Bill Pursell (Columbia CL 1992)
Our Winter Love by Robert Maxwell from A Song For All Seasons (Decca DL 4609)
Our Winter Love by Felix Slatkin from Our Winter Love (Liberty LST-7287, 1963)
Winter's Sadness by Felix Slatkin from Fantastic Strings Play Fantastic Themes (Liberty LSS-14021, 1962)

OK, that's enough yammering from me. Here's the link. Download and enjoy!

Bill Pursell is a name I remember from my days in Easy Listening radio. I remember that he did a lot of Nashville session work - he played on some Patsy Cline sessions on Decca. I think "Our Winter Love" was his only solo hit.

Hi, I'm Laura Pursell and I'm Bill Pursell's daughter. If you have any questions, you can email me at He's still very active and, in fact, we'll be in the studio together next week!
