Electric Two

And now, the post you've all been waiting for. It's not Moog, but it's close. I found this record in the bathroom of Fantasyland Records in Atlanta this summer, and I've been excited about it ever since.  I think Joseph Byrd was the leader of The United States Of America, a hippie band from back in the time of the hippies.  Since then, he's done a lot of stuff, including this Christmas album, performed on the Arp Synthesizer.  Imagine a Christmas version of Walt Disney World's Electric Light Parade, that's what this reminds me of.  Trust me, if you like the electronic stuff, this is going to rock your world.  I'm going to shut up and let the music do the talking.  Please download Joseph Byrd-A Christmas Yet To Come (Takoma C-1046, Stereo, 1975).  Note:  There's some distortion in some of these tracks.  That's on the vinyl that way.  I don't know if the sounds he was creating couldn't be contained on mere vinyl, or it's a bad pressing or something else.  I hope it's not too distracting.

Electric One Point Five

OK, I'm hoping that by now you've downloaded and listened to my previous share of Christmas music played on the Moog Synthesizer. Now download and listen to this one. Sound familiar? When I was first recording this one, I thought I'd stumbled onto some great, new, undiscovered Moog Christmas record. What I'd actually discovered was a rehash of Sy Mann's LP, with some kids singing Spanish over top of it. Further research turned up even more rehashing.  I think they took the version of Tijuana Christmas from this other LP (which is itself just wordless vocals over the Moog version) and again added some very minimal kiddie singalong.  Gotta love budget labels! Anyhow, it's still well worth your listening, so go download Los Mensajeros De La Alegria-Navidades Blancas (White Christmas) Cantan Y Tocan Los Mensajeros De La Alegria (Mr. Pickwick (Pickwick) SPC 1506, Stereo, 1973).  By the way, I lucked out and found a copy that still had the original tear-off sheet attached.  I've included scans of it in the download.  Print it out and you can make your own decorations in the shape of the three kings!

1. Santa Claus Muy Pronto Llegara (Santa Claus Is Coming To Town)
2. Navidad Tijuana (Tijuana Christmas)
3. El Niño Del Tambor (The Little Drummer Boy)
4. Navidades Blancas (White Christmas)
5. Al Mundo Paz (Joy To The World)
6. ¿Que Niño Es Este? (What Child Is This?)
7. Rodolfo, El Siervo De La Nariz Roja (Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer)
8. Hoy Es Navidad (Jingle Bells)
9. Angels Cantando Estań (Angels We Have Heard On High)
10. Noche De Paz (Silent Night)
11. Cosas Que Me Hacen Feliz (My Favorite Things)
12. Campanas De Navidad (Christmas Bells)


Electric One

One of the few albums that was created and released specifically for the Pickwick label, this is the great LP of all-Moog music that I first discovered of at FaLaLaLaLa! I don't think he's sharing it out anymore, so I'm sharing out my copy tonight.  The music here is great, if the whole thing is a bit short.  And if you'll bear with me for a while, I've got another reason for sharing it, but I've got to finish it up first.  In the meantime, please download Sy Mann-Switched On Santa!-The Merriest Moog Synthesizer Plays Christmas Favorites (Pickwick SPCX-1007, Stereo, 1969).  And isn't that Jean Jacques Perrey as Santa on the cover?

Fielding's Fabulous

This is one of my favorite discoveries this year! What I thought was just a reissue of some random budget label stuff turned out to be a nice album of brass-led Christmas tunes. I've gone back and listened to this one as much or more than I've listened to anything else I recorded all year.  It's not a vocal album, and those seem to be everyone's favorite, but I'm sure this one will become a top-player if you give it a listen or two.  I don't know much about Mr. Fielding, but he did make a few albums back in the day.  I've only ever seen one copy of this one and you're looking at it.  Please be my guest and download Jerry Fielding And His Brass Choir-Favorite Christmas Music (Signature SM 1028, Mono, 1959).

Closer To The North Pole

Why is this organ record so good? All I can figure is that it's by a guy from Canada, and that's pretty close to the North Pole. So all that Santa goodness just rains down on him, making the music full of that Christmas spirit. And if the internet is correct, this guy has recorded something like four Christmas records! If they're all this good, sign me up! (Anyone? Anyone?) To be honest, I only picked this up because of the cover, and what a cover it is.  Who knew that the music could live up to that, but it does.  It's a nice mix of the sacred and profane here, too.  The carols are reverent and the ditties are happy and bouncy.  Oh, I could just go on and on, but if I don't hurry, I'm going to miss the next episode of Gold Rush (and don't tell me it's faked, I can't imagine they bury all that gold for the guys to find...not like Storage Wars).  This is Lucien Hétu-Noël (RCA Gala (Canada) CGPS 343, Stereo, 1969).

1. Minuit Chretiens
2. Adeste Fideles
3. Jesus De Nazareth
4. Noël Des Petits Santons

The Senator From Illinois

Try to imagine a time in American politics when a sitting Senator could record a Christmas album? Hard to believe, but it wasn't that long ago. I first saw this LP shared out at the now-defunct blog run by Inkydog (Cheerful Earful, I think it was called). I'd not seen it or heard of it, but I just thought it was the coolest thing. I eventually tracked down a copy (or two) for myself, and now I'm sharing it with you. The name Dirksen was familiar to me even without knowing of this Christmas album, and it took me a while to figure out why.  It turns out that one of the office buildings near the US Capitol is named for him, and I've walked past it many times while visiting DC.  So I guess he must have been a pretty popular fellow.  This isn't the only LP he recorded, either.  I think there were at least two other albums, all following the same theme of recitations and spoken lyrics.  You can't go wrong with an album like this, believe me.  Just imagine John Boehner or Nancy Pelosi doing something like this today.  Anyhow, please be my guest and download Everett McKinley Dirksen At Christmas Time (Capitol ST 2792, Stereo, 1967).

2. I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day

Renewed Ramsey The Second

Here's a little re-do of one of the favorite downloads of all time. Don't know if I'm still allowed to share this, but I hope so. This may be the only share you get all season that can honestly be called jazz.  This is The Ramsey Lewis Trio-More Sounds Of Christmas (Cadet LPS-745, Stereo, 1964), first recorded and shared 'round here back in 2007, so this remaster only took me five years to get to.

1. Snowbound
2. The Twelve Days Of Christmas
3. Egg Nog
4. Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer
5. Jingle Bells
6. Plum Puddin'
7. Snowfall
8. We Three Kings
9. White Christmas
10. Little Drummer Boy

Pretty sure the one I recorded is shown up top, but I also found this other cover. I'm afraid I didn't do enough research to figure out which one came first and which one is a re-issue. Pretty sure I've seen a third cover as well, but I couldn't dig it up to scan it when I had the chance.

More Be-Waring

And if one cruelly overlooked Fred Waring LP isn't enough for you, how about another one? This is another record that was in my collection for years, but I never paid too much attention to it. I picked it up this year, and decided maybe you needed to hear it. This is nearly 20 years after the last one, close to forever in the music business, but it's still got some of that old Fred Waring magic.  I don't think I like the cover as much, though.  This is Fred Waring And The Pennsylvanians-A Caroling We Go (Decca DL 74809, Stereo, 1966).

1. A Caroling We Go
2. Carol, Brothers, Carol
3. (I) Away In The Manger (II) What Child Is This? (III) Come, Dear Children
4. Some Children See Him
5. Bright, Bright The Holly Berries
6. Mary's Baby
7. Be Joyful, Be Merry
8. (I) Season's Greetings (From "A Caroling We Go") (II) Christmas Roundelay
9. O Listen To The Angels' Song
10. (I) Angels We Have Heard On High (II) O Come, O Come, Emmanuel (III) Jubilate Deo
11. It Was A Night Of Wonder
12. King Herod's Black Decree
13. I Wonder As I Wander
14. Caroling, Caroling



I've been sharing records by Fred Waring And His Pennsylvanians with you for years now, but it was only recently that I realized I was missing at least one (maybe two). I started looking at the one you see above and recognized some of the songs, but not all of them. It turns out that this record was Fred's first full Christmas album, from 1949.  It was released on 78 and vinyl, and oddly enough, I stumbled across a copy from across the pond, which is what I recorded and scanned.  American audiences might be more familiar with the cover shown down at the bottom, but I thought it would be cool to go with the UK cover, just to keep you on your toes.  Pretty sure the music is identical, but I do know it is not the same as the songs that showed up on the 12" version with the same title that came out six years later.  So if you want to hear more old Waring, please download Fred Waring And His Pennsylvanians-'Twas The Night Before Christmas (Brunswick (UK) 10" 33 RPM LA 8693, Mono, 1949).

1. 'Twas The Night Before Christmas
2. Silent Night, Holy Night-Introducing: Come Unto Him from "The Messiah"
3. Oh, Gathering Clouds
4. Adeste Fideles (O Come, All Ye Faithful)
5. Cantique De Noel (O, Holy Night)
6. The First Nowell; O, Little Town Of Bethlehem; Carol Of The Bells
7. Beautiful Savior


Mike 2

Since it is almost Christmas, I figured I'd go ahead and give you Mike's other Christmas album, but I'm going to leave you with a little warning. This one came out in 1979, and here there be disco. Not much, but enough. Don't say that I didn't warn you.  This one is another remaster, I first shared it out back in 2007.  If I had to pick between the two, this one is the second best, but I like to be complete about things.  If you do, too, please download Mike Douglas-The Mike Douglas Christmas Album (Word WSB-8815, Stereo, 1979).

1. Oh Holy Night
2. One Small Child
3. Do You Hear What I Hear?
4. What Child Is This?
5. Christmas Song
6. It's O.K. To Be A Kid At Christmas
7. Christmas Is Love
8. Thanks To You At Christmas
9. Special Delivery
10. Happy Birthday, Christmas


Mike 1

Tonight's first post is an old favorite, and a remaster of that old favorite to boot! It's also an entry into that rarified field of celebrity vocals. I first shared this one back in, oh, let's see, August of 2006.  It was an odd time of year, but it was right after Mr. Douglas passed away.  It's been back quite a few times, but never sounding this good.  So treat yourself to a little bit of Mike Douglas With Frank Hunter Conducting The Orchestra-My Kind Of Christmas (Epic BN 26322, Stereo, 1967).

1. The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)
2. The First Noel
3. Do You Hear What I Hear?

10. Touch Hands On Christmas Morning

A Small Biggs

And now, a bit of organ music from a 10 inch record, one of just a handful I ripped this year. These little records are pretty few and far between, but in the first few years of the LP, no one knew what size would triumph.  Would it be the 12" or the 10" size, both spinning at 33 RPM, or would it be the 7" 45 RPM format pushed by RCA Victor?  Well, in the end, the MP3 digital format won, or maybe we're still not at the end, who knows?  But for now, a bit of music from a piece of vinyl 10 inches in diameter.  This is Richard Keys Biggs-An Organ Concert Of Carols (Columbia 10" 33 RPM CL 6076, Mono, 1949).

1. Adeste Fideles (Oh, Come All Ye Faithful)
2. The First Noel
3. It Came Upon The Midnight Clear
4. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
5. Silent Night, Holy Night
6. Angels We Have Heard
7. Joy To The World
8. Lo, How A Rose E'er Blooming
9. O Holy Night
10. O Little Town Of Bethlehem
11. Angels From The Realms Of Glory

PS-For more Christmas music on 10" vinyl, be sure to visit Buster's place, and tell him that Ernie guy sent you!

Garber (Not Garbled)

I haven't brought you any LPs from the great old bandleaders in a while, so here's one to tide you over for a while. I'm still hunting for a stereo copy of this one, so I need to go add it to my want list. Anyhow, this is the second LP of Christmas music released by Jan Garber. In fact, I need the older one, and I understand there are different songs on the different formats it was released in. So I need the vinyl and the shellac! But that's neither here nor there.  I'm concentrating on this one for now, a nice little collection of slow dancing band music.  Please download Jan Garber And His Orchestra-Christmas Dance Party With Jan Garber And His Orchestra (Decca DL 8932, Mono, 1959).

1. Jumpin' Jiminy Christmas
2. Sleigh Ride

Winter (& Spring & Summer & Autumn)

Here it is, the one you've been waiting for probably since 2005 when I first shared out this record. This is a great collection of songs with a winter theme, not necessarily Christmas, but there are plenty of songs here that fit right into your holiday celebration.  There's nothing I can say about this that hasn't been said earlier, probably by me sometime over the past seven years, but here it is in what I hope is better sound, higher bitrate, better scan, etc, etc, etc.  Please enjoy The Ray Charles Singers-Winter Wonderland (MGM E3387, Mono, 1956).

1. Winter Wonderland
2. Button Up Your Overcoat
3. June In January
4. When Winter Comes
5. Snowfall
6. I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm
7. Winter & Theme For Indoor Sports
8. Moonlight In Vermont
9. Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
10. When Winter Comes A-Callin'
11. Jingle Bells
12. By The Fireside


And now, just to show you my heart's in the right place, how would you like the rest of the set, for the first time ever around these parts?  That's right, I finally got around to ripping the other seasonal albums that Ray and the gang put out between 1954 and 1957.  They're not all that rare, but having all four of them in one place to record and scan them always seemed to be a challenge to me.  So get 'em while they're hot.  I know they're not Christmas, but you can hold onto them until the appropriate season.  Up first is The Ray Charles Singers-Spring Is Here (MGM E3162, Mono, 1956).

Next up is a collection of summer songs.  The Ray Charles Singers-Summertime (MGM E3529, Mono, 1957).  More of the same, really.

And last but not least is their ode to Fall, the season so nice, they named it twice.  The Ray Charles Singers-Autumn Nocturne (MGM E3145, Mono, 1954).  You have no idea how hard it was for me to tear myself away from the Christmas music long enough to finish up the details on these non-Christmas records.  I recorded them back near the beginning of the year, but I sat down tonight and did all the artwork.  I hope you enjoy the music.


PS-Don't forget that The Ray Charles Singers had an honest-to-goodness Christmas album that I shared out in a remastered version earlier this year.  Also, sometime in the midst of the run of these records, they also issued a collection of French songs.  I have it, but I haven't recorded or even listened to it.  Sorry.

Seeburg (Not Muzak)

This is one of the records I've been looking for pretty hard now for a few years. I've got a couple of Christmas records from Muzak, but this record from Seeburg has escaped me for a while. And wouldn't you know it, I've finally dug up two copies, and they're both mono. So if you've downloaded a stereo one elsewhere, don't bother with this one. But if you haven't, feel free to grab this one and enjoy some easy listening that will take you back to shopping at J.M. Fields in the early 70's. This is The Sound & Color Of Christmas from Seeburg Background Music (Seeburg 700189, Mono).

1. Medley: We Wish You A Merry Christmas; Carol Of The Bells
2. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
3. The Twelve Days Of Christmas
4. Angels We Have Heard On High
5. Good King Wenceslaus
6. Coventry Carol
7. Carol Of The Drum ("Little Drummer Boy")
8. Deck The Halls
9. I'll Be Home For Christmas
10. Medley: Shepherd's Carol; Patapan
11. O Christmas Tree
12. Here We Come A-Caroling
13. The Christmas Waltz
14. God Rest, Ye Merry Gentlemen (I swear, that's how it's punctuated!)


August (Not December)

Here's something a little bit outside of the norm around here, but I like to keep you on your toes. This is a bit of choral music for your Christmas listening tonight. I'm sure some of you will really dig this, others, not so much.  I think it makes a nice change of pace when you've got the whole collection on random.  Download it, you might like it.  This is The Augustana Choir-Henry Veld, Director-Christmas Music By The Augustana Choir (RCA Camden CAS-638, Stereo, 1960).

1. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
2. What Child Is This? (Greensleeves)
3. Silent Night

6. Away In A Manger

10. Come To The Manger
11. The Coventry Carol
12. What Can This Mean
13. The Blessed Birth
14. How Brightly Beams The Morning Star
15. Selection From A Ceremony Of Carols


Vincent (Not George)

This is my version of one of my favorite shares ever over at The Christmas Yuleblog. And since The Captain has pretty much called it quits over there (though he could still surprise us), I'm going to go ahead and share out my copy of this great album with you.  This album has a little bit of everything in it's 21 songs, from reverent carols to quirky 50's pop, old favorites to tunes found only here.  There's truly something for everyone in the grooves here.  Even the cover is a kitsch classic, from the color TV (which gets a credit on the back sleeve!) to the creepy Santa, even the then-fancy chair.  There's just so much to love about this record, but so few people have seen or heard it.  So be sure you don't delay, go now and download Vincent Lopez And His Orchestra-Christmas Music (Coral CRL 57189, Mono, 1957).

1. Sleigh Ride

Speaking of Ruth Lyons and the talent she surrounded herself with, here's an album from her eventual replacement on television, Bob Braun. I've shared this album with you for a few years now, but I rerecorded it this year so it sound better than ever!  There's at least one song on here that you heard on the single I shared with you a few minutes ago, so you can compare and contrast if you'd like.  There are plenty of songs on here written by Ruth, as a matter of fact, so until you get the chance to listen to either of her full albums, this will have to do.  Please enjoy Bob Braun-Orchestra Conducted By Leroy Holmes-Christmas In Your Heart (United Artists UAS 6664, Stereo, 1968).

1. Christmas In Your Heart
2. Everywhere The Bells Are Ringing
3. Do You Hear What I Hear
4. A Marshmellow (sic) World
5. A Child's First Christmas
6. Let's Light The Christmas Tree
7. Christmas Lullaby
8. Winter Wonderland
9. That's What Christmas Means To Me
10. I'll Be Home For Christmas
11. Christmas Medley


Singles Sunday #20-Ruth

The last single of the evening is probably the best. The Christmas music of Ruth Lyons is one of those little open secrets of the Christmas music community.  Few people outside of Ohio really know who she is, but the two Christmas records and handful of singles she released are true gems.  Some of it's been released on CD, and there're always rumors of the rest being released any day now, but it's been a long time since anything has come out.  So most of it I'm hesitant to share, but singles are sort of a special area, so here you go.  I actually shared out a single from her last year, and it was one of the more popular shares of the year.  So I'm hoping lightning strikes twice for Ms. Lyons.  This time, it's a major label, and the production levels are really high.  I recorded all of the Christmas music I had of Ms. Lyons this year, and these are certainly the two most polished tracks in the collection.  They'll sparkle right alongside anything else you choose to play them against.  So please download and enjoy Ruth Lyons With Cliff Lash And His Orchestra-All Because It's Christmas b/w Everywhere The Bells Are Ringing (Columbia 7" 45 RPM 4-41810, Mono, 1960).  Oh, the vocalist on Everywhere The Bells Are Ringing is Ruby Wright, one of the stable of stars that Ruth assembled.


Singles Sunday #19-Full Moon

If it weren't for his Christmas music, I doubt if anyone would remember Art Mooney these days. And I have a feeling more people remember his child vocalist, Barry Gordon, than they do poor old Art.  But at least they remember the music, and that's what counts.  This EP rounded up four Christmas sides that Art recorded for MGM, sometime in the late 50's, I think.  Was there a picture sleeve for this?  Probably.  I think MGM released a handful of collections like this, rounding up random Christmas sides.  I've got a couple of others, and I wish I had more.  In addition to a couple of tracks with Barry, one song here features Laura Leslie, and one other song features lots and lots of banjos.  You've been warned.  This is Art Mooney And His Orchestra-Nuttin' For Christmas EP (MGM 7" 45 RPM X1173, Mono).

1. Nuttin' For Christmas
2. Santa Claus Looks Just Like Daddy
3. The Candy Land Parade
4. Jingle Bells


Singles Sunday #18-Oink Oink

This may well be the oddest song I share with you all season. And I don't take such a pronouncement lightly. Christmas Piggy, it's just weird.  I don't even know how to explain it.  Download it and give it a listen.  Maybe you can explain it.  This is the Hunt Sisters (Anitta, Cheryl & Ione)-Christmas Piggy (With The Apple In The Mouth) b/w Silent Night (Holy Night) (Samson 7" 45 RPM HSXP-415/-416, Mono).  At least they sing Silent Night straight...


Singles Sunday #17-Bermuda Edition

If the label is to be believed, this single comes all the way from the island of Bermuda. I don't know if that's true or not, but it makes a good story. I don't remember there being anything about the music that made me think it could be from Bermuda, but you never know.  Anyhow, this is another great single for the collection, Ivan Browne-Mary's Boy Child b/w Jingle Bell Ride (Edmar 7" 45 RPM 45-1069, Mono).  There seems to be some Winter Wonderland mixed in there with Jingle Bell Ride, which is really just Jingle Bells.  Not sure who they're trying to fool there...
