26 Days Of Christmas-Day 26-The End

A day late and two dollars short. Here's another compilation I didn't finish up for Christmas. But I've got a great finale for it tonight. Here's A Special Arrangement By Santa Claus' Helper Little Joey-Ave Maria (Variety 7" 45 RPM 45-V1011). This is about as reverent as it gets around here, folks, so enjoy it while you can. I wasn't sure what a Klavier Pianette was, but now I know, and so will you. Google yields no results for this one, not even any sales listings, so heaven knows where it's been hiding. The label mentions Chicago, but it's a long, long way from home. I've got to get a cover put together for this collection, but I make no promises as to when that will be. Well, I promise it will be before next Christmas! Thanks to everybody who came around and downloaded it one track at a time. As soon as I get that cover together, I'll put the whole thing in a single ZIP file so you can download it all at once. It just may take me a bit...

  1. a zip file! < smacks his head > ...I've had 30 tabs open on firefox so I could grab them all.

    Thanks for all the great tracks. This has been one of the only things to REALLY get me into the Christmas spirit this year.

  2. Dear Ernie,

    Thank you for all the work involved in sharing this great music with the world. I was especially delighted to find my personal Holy Grail, the Maurice Chevalier "Jolly Old St. Nicholas". Now that I've found your blog, I'll stay tuned all year long

  3. While digitalizing my collection (I reached the "E"s), I came across this great comp I downloaded moons ago.

    I had to rip my CD-R of this comp for my collection and figured I'd forward you a link. Watch your mailbox - it's coming.
