25 Days Of Christmas-Day 20

Here's another interesting track for my online compilation 25 Days Of Christmas. Get yourselves a little NOW! sound action with Up With People-Jingle Bell Beat from Merry Christmas To You All (Pace 1105, 1969). I was all set to share out this whole LP last year when I found out that it's on CD. So if you like this track, you can go out and buy the whole thing. I was reminded of this track when it popped up on this year's Christmas mix from the great Andy Cirzan. I think this was the only track on his whole mix that I was familiar with. Well, one other track I think I had downloaded somewhere earlier this year, but still, he's got a lot of obscure Christmas music. I'm trying to get caught up before Christmas Day on my releases here, so keep checking back.

Hey Ernie. Is this album still available on CD somewhere? I can't seem to find it on amazon or itunes. If it is out-of-print, is there any way you could share it? Thanks!

You've got to broaden your search horizons a bit beyond just the 600 pound gorillas of the download world. But it doesn't appear to be available at the Up With People sites that used to sell it, so here's a little Christmas present for you. Don't expect too much, it's a very, very old rip.
