Thanksgiving In June-Part 2

Well, what do you know, I've got a few Thanksgiving tunes left over from yesterday.  Here are twelve more tracks to get you in the mood for turkey day, even though it's almost five months away.

1 & 2. Unknown Artist-I'm A Very Fine Turkey & Thanksgiving, two more tracks from Making Music Your Own-Kindergarten Record IV (Silver Burdett Records 75 180 4, Mono, 1966).  That makes this the most prolific Thanksgiving track record in our short season.

3. Children From New York Public School 24 With Guitar Accompaniment-My Mom's Thanksgiving Dinner from Songs For All Year Long (Folkways/Scholastic SC7626, Mono, 1965).  Folkways has put out a lot of good music over the years, a lot of the things that wouldn't have been released anywhere else.

4. Ray Middleton-Choir & Music Under Direction Of Howard Barlow-Thanksgiving Day from the album Ten Protestant Holy Days (Candle Records CAN-111, Mono, 1957). Yes, I think I have all of the Holy Days albums now.  Aren't I special!

5. Unknown Artist-Turkey In The Straw from Holidays Holidays (Golden Records LP 250, Mono).  This is the song that comes after the narration I shared with you yesterday from this record. And I told you that we'd be hearing a lot from this Unknown Artist fellow...

6. Richard Hayman, His Harmonica And Orchestra-Turkey Mambo from Let's Get Together (Wing (Mercury) MGW 12100, Mono, 1956).  Another record that's been in the stack for ages and I just kept flipping past it.

7. Greg & Steve-Happy Thanksgiving To All from Holidays And Special Times (Youngheart Records YR009-R, Stereo, 1989).  This is getting pretty late for the vinyl record, and very late for me as far as stuff I collect.  But when you find a good song, you gotta use it.

8. 101 Strings, Recorded Under The Direction Of D.L. Miller-Praise God This Thanksgiving Day from Themes And Songs Of American Holidays (Alshire S-5056, Stereo, 1967).  One of the tracks that I recorded ages ago and pulled from the archives for sharing this year.

9. New York Philharmonic-Leonard Bernstein, Conductor, With The Camerata Singers-Abraham Kaplan, Director-Thanksgiving And/Or Forefathers' Day from Leonard Bernstein Conducts Charles Ives' Holidays Symphony (Columbia Masterworks MS 7147, Stereo, 1968).  Another version of that dirge-like track I shared yesterday.  Not my favorite holiday song.

10. Julia Sutton And Company-Thanksgiving Day from The Good Old Bad Old Days (EMI (UK) EMA 751, Stereo, 1973).  Interesting show tune from the well known team of Leslie Briscusse and Anthony Newley.

11. Bob Hope-Thanksgiving Day from Holidays (Spear/Bell 4700, Stereo, 1973).  Because you need a little comedy for your listening pleasure.

12. Hap Palmer-Things I'm Thankful For-Instrumental from Holiday Songs And Rhythms (Activity Records AR-538, Stereo, 1980).  This is an instrumental version of a track I shared with you yesterday, in case you wonder what it has to do with Thanksgiving other than the title...

And that's it, another fine day in the books. Hope there's something in here you enjoy!  Don't forget to leave me the wishbone!  Oh, a link would be nice...
