Christmas In July (In August)-The Sixteenth Day

I believe that post number sixteen is the halfway point for this celebration of Christmas in July. Of course, it's the middle of August, so that means it's going to take forever to finish up. So I'd best get busy. Track one today is a medley of two tracks called Roll Up The Snow and Wonderful World Of Winter, performed by Rosemarie Jun and Robert Spiro. No idea who they are but the writer of these tracks, as well as the rest of the album is Helen Horn aka Pretty Penny (The liner notes peg her as well-known, but the internet is coming up with nothing...). The album is Children Sing Around The Year (Decca DL 4406, Mono, 1963). Track two is a second track by Don, Dick and Jimmy from their album Spring Fever (Crown CLP 5005, Mono, 1957). This time around it's Out In The Cold Again. Third we have Eugene Ettore & Louis Scalera performing Snow-Ride from New Organ Magic (Sano Corp. 1001, Mono). This appears to be a promotional item from Sano Corp, makers of an all-electronic organ that looks a whole lot like an accordion to me. Track four is the great Edmundo Ros And His Orchestra playing My Favorite Things from The Sound Of Music In Latin Tempos For Dancing (London PS-198, Stereo, 1960). This sounds awful familiar, but I can't find any evidence that I've shared it before... Last, we've got another track by Hugo Winterhalter from his LP A Season For My Beloved (ABC-Paramount ABCS-447, Stereo, 1963), this time it's The Things We Did Last Summer, and I think it's the last track I have for you from that LP. So, here's the download link, have at it. See you all later!

  1. Do you still have the Children Sing around the World Record? My grandmother used to play it for my mother when she was a child and is trying to find a copy of it for her or at the very least a digital version of the music.
