Christmas In July 2007-Day 12

Uh-oh! It's Friday the 13th. Should that scare me? No, not really. Nothing too terrible bad happened today. Future historians will someday wonder why I'm posting the twelfth installment of my Christmas In July on the 13th, but they'll have to figure that out for themselves. And speaking of part twelve, it's three versions of The Jolly Coppersmith, a song that really has a very tenuous Christmas connection. I saw it on a single Christmas record once, and so I'm throwing it in. It's tough to come up with Christmas music to share with you every day for a month, sometimes I have to make decisions that not everyone is happy with. So let's all just roll with it and try to enjoy ourselves, shall we? Version-a one-a is by Lawrence Welk And His Champagne Music from Pick-A-Polka (Coral CRL 57067, 1956). Take two is from Johnny Maddox and the LP Great Marches And Waltzes In Ragtime (Hamilton HLP 12150, 1965). And version three is by Al Melgard from the same LP as a track shared two days ago, Al Melgard At The Chicago Stadium Organ (Audio Fidelity AFSD 5886). Here's the download link, and enjoy!

This day last year (which was not Friday the 13th) featured four tracks from 10" records, including a track called Holiday by The Three Suns!
