Cool Coral

This is a great share that I don't think I've ever seen anywhere else, or even seen a second copy of the record. This double 7" features songs from four different artists, and all of the songs are making their first appearance here, according to the liner notes. Not too many Christmas releases can say that. This was originally shared out back in 2005 and I'm pleased to bring this back for your enjoyment. Please download Merry Christmas From (Coral Records EC-82003, Mono).

1. The Ames Brothers-Sing A Song Of Santa Claus
2. The Ames Brothers-Winter's Here Again
3. Don Cornell-Let's Have An Old Fashioned Christmas
4. Don Cornell-I've Got The Christmas Spirit
5. Eileen Barton-The Little Match Girl
6. Eileen Barton-The Night Before Christmas Song
7. Johnny Desmond-(You Can Just Feel) Christmas In The Air
8. Johnny Desmond-Christmas Is A Time (That Will Never Change)

The Eileen Barton / Johnny Desmond tracks are worth the price of the download alone!

Great to see this one again!

Hi Ernie,

You may be interested that this was originally issued with a slightly different cover. Instead of "Merry Christmas from" at the top, it says "The NEW Christmas Songs - Merry Christmas 1952." I have both versions on 10-inch LP, and may show the covers on the Big 10-Inch Record blog and send people your way for the tunes - if OK! (I'm lazy.)

Funny, I like the two other artists' tracks. There's something for everyone on this one, Cap'n.

Buster, thanks for the info. And please post your covers, I'd love to see both of them, and if yours sounds better than mine, which I don't think is going to be hard, post the audio, too.
