Used Music-Track One

As if I haven't already gone overboard with the Christmas music sharing today, I want to start building a compilation album, too. I thought of a great theme when I heard someone else's compilation called Used Music. I wanted to pull together a collection of music from those Christmas compilation LPs you see in the thrift stores all the time. You know, the ones that used to be available in gas stations or grocery stores, or in this case, from your Amway dealer. Track one of my collection is Jingle Bells by The Sanborn Singers from Sounds Of Christmas (Columbia Special Products for Amway P 12474, 1974). The Sanborn Singers were an in-house group that performed at Amway conventions and what-not, so I think that this collection is pretty much the only place to get this track. They've got another song on there, too, that I might share with you later if you're good. Everything else on the LP is the regular-issue Columbia artists filler stuff, like Johnny Mathis, Percy Faith and Mitch Miller. But this track? WOW!

What a great start to the new Christmas posting season, Ernie! Two different albums with the words "Sounds of Christmas" in the title, wow!

I hope you don't mind, but I gave you a plug over on my blog - while posting my own Christmas album called "Sounds of Christmas," that is. If your regular readers are interested here is the link to my blog where anybody can get that album too:

Keep up the good work!

So when are you going to start the Christmas posts?

Ernie said...

Thanks for the plug, Dr. Zoidberg. Always nice to get linked by other bloggers. I grabbed your comp, too. Thanks for sharing, and I look forward to the other one.

Lee, I'm thinking I'll get started late Christmas Eve. That should give me time to get it all in before Santa shows.

Ernie, you are truly amazing! God bless you and your efforts.

I'm just wondering if I'll be able to keep up with all this. I've got a special folder created just for your anticipated posts!

And of course, as always, here comes Lee and his great sense of humor! LOL!
