At Long Last

I've been getting requests for this LP since I shared out the doodle on the back of it way back in July of 2005. Problem is, it's not in very good shape. I had to work at it to get a non-skipping rip. But one night I finally got it, so now I can share it with you. If there are any skips in there now, I don't know about them, and you're just going to have to live with them. I do wish this was a stereo version, but beggars can't be choosers. Oh, just for the record, I paid $1 for this vinyl four or five years ago. I had no idea what it was, or who it was, I just liked the goofy cover with the dogs and the girl who got the fur coat that she wanted for Christmas. Who knew it was so good! Here's Gisele MacKenzie-Christmas With Gisele (RCA Victor LPM-2006, Mono, 1959). Don't miss the EP from Gisele that I just posted from last year. I think it's got some of the tracks that later showed up on this LP, but at least you get a cover from this same photo shoot.

Update: Looks like someone finally wised up about this record. It's now available for download on iTunes. So I can't share it anymore, but you can download a nice MP3 version of it.

My favorite of everything youve posted this year. This will go down as one of our family's favorites I am sure. Thanks for all of your hard work and happy Christmas!

That cover ain't goofy, my friend!

I found myself in love with the voice of Gisele MacKenzie, as an adult, when I came across her cover version of "Tenderly". She IS the First Lady of Canadian Song. Thank you for sharing the music!
