Christmas In July 2017 Day 17

Another day, another post.  I got nothing cute to say, sorry.

1. Skater's Waltz-Grande Valse by The Organ Masters from Music For Skaters (RCA Camden CAS-2363, Stereo, 1969).  I guess this was the organ equivalent of the Living series.  At least I don't think I've ever seen a Living Organ record.  It was even produced by Ethel Gabriel.

2. Little Drummer Boy, one of many tracks I have to share with you by The Kennedy Space Center Chorus, Directed By Arthur C. Benington from the LP Voices Of Space (Century Records 32909, Stereo).  Not sure of the year on this, but I'm guessing 1967 or 1968.  What other blog is going to bring you music recorded by a chorus of people who were hard at work putting a man on the moon?

3. White Christmas By The Wurlitzer Company from their how-to guide, Organ Melodies From The Hobby-Lesson Course For Wurlitzer Organs (Rite Record Productions for The Wurlitzer Company 12183/12184, Mono, 1964). Short, but sweet.

4. Valse Finale by Boston Pops Orchestra, Arthur Fiedler, Conductor from the early LP Khatchaturian-Masquerade/Tchaikovsky-The Nutcracker (RCA Victor Red Seal LM 1029 (Reissue of 78 RPM set DM-1164), Mono, 1946).  I think this is the last track I have to share from this one.  I could be wrong, though, and I'm too lazy to check.

5. My Favorite Things by The Pete Jolly Trio And Friends from Little Bird (Ava Records A-22, Mono, 1963).  My knowledge of Pete Jolly is pretty limited, but I know it was his music inside some of the best Jim Flora album covers of all time.  No one ever listens to the music on those, though, they just look at the artwork.

6. June In January by Don, Dick 'N Jimmy from their LP Spring Fever (Modern LMP 1205 (aka Crown CLP 5005), Mono, 1957).  At the time, I guess this wasn't a budget label, but things were headed downhill quick.

7. A Jazz Holiday by Ted Lewis And His Band-Vocal By Ted Lewis from Everybody's Happy! (Epic LN 3170, Mono, 1955, Originally Recorded 3 April 1928).  I think they're singing about a different kind of holiday...

8. Doll Dance by Guy Lombardo And His Royal Canadians-Fred Kreitzer And Francis Vigneau At The Twin Pianos from The Twin Pianos (DDecca DL 8119, Mono, 1955).  I guess the duo piano thing isn't as novel as I once thought...

9. Deck The Halls by Jun & Merrill Ostrus, Dominic Cortese on Accordion from They Came Singing (Bowmar B-513, Mono).  I think this was another kiddie record, or maybe a sample record for music you could buy for your choral group.  Yeah, that sounds right.  Perhaps I've recorded too much if I can't even remember what I recorded last week.

10. Bells Of St Mary's by The Wurlitzer Company from the LP Organ Melodies From The Hobby-Lesson Course For Wurlitzer Organs (Rite Record Productions for The Wurlitzer Company 12183/12184, Mono, 1964). Wait a minute, I just shared a track from this record up above.  Sigh.  I need more sleep.  Let me pull another one out of my hat for you.

11. My Favorite Things by Marilyn King Accompanied By The Alvino Rey Orchestra from The King Family Show! (Warner Bros. W1601, Mono, 1965).  And now I've shared the same song twice in one night.  Double-sigh.  Oh well.  Back in the old days of the blog, I used to share this track out as a bonus song for the King Family Christmas album.  I need to find a stereo copy though. 

There you have it, eleven tracks with way too many screw-ups.  I'm going to bed early.

I'm having the same issue with this one day's link.

Thanks for all the effort Ernie!

You might want to try again later. I just went out and downloaded it with no problem. Such issues come and go sometimes.

anonymous may be referring zippyshare's advertising/hijacking of the the download link. when you click the download link there, more often than not, a pop-up or even an entire webpage will appear. some of these seem to me to be benign advertising (zippyshare making some money... hey, they're entitled) but others appear to me to be entries to malware, perhaps not generated by zippyshare, but instead by an unscrupulous 3rd party. i never click anything on any of them. i'll click the 'X' for its tab on my top bar, but often that either does nothing or generates a pop-up that says 'are you sure you want to leave this page?'. i don't click on that either. in that case, i click the red X on the top bar over in the upper right corner. zippyshare then disappears and i have to re-establish an internet connection, navigate to ernienotbert, click the proper zippyshare link again, and click the download button there again. usually it works the second time. sometimes i have to do all that a third or fourth time, but finally there will be no pop-up and download will begin.

someone who's a bit more savvy than me perhaps can authoritatively say how to simplify all that. but i've had bad malware in the past, so i'm super careful now. anyway, it's not just ernie's links. it's all zippyshare links. other filehosting services have similar problems. like they say, there's no such thing as a free lunch. we all pay somehow.

It's me again. It downloaded fine, thanks Ernie.

Yeah, I'm aware of how Zippyshare does its fun popups. Not a major deal. This wasn't the problem this time, but we're all good now.
