Christmas In July 2019-Part 13

Lucky number 13!  Here we go!

1. Polyphon Music Box-Silent Night from The Charm Of The Old Music Box-Rare Old Music Boxes From The A. Hacker Collection (Yesterday's Amusements/Premier Film & Recording Corporation 13993, Mono).  I keep grabbing stuff from the same music box LP.  I'm sure I have others...

2. The Norman Luboff Choir-Still, Still, Still from Songs Of The World (Columbia 2xLP C2L 13, Mono, 1958).  Our second Luboff of the year.

3. Chronicle Atlantic Symphony Steel Orchestra Of Guyana-Conducted By Des Frazer, Soloist Joel (Wonder Boy) Waddy-Ave Maria from On Tour With Guy America Airways (Triton Record Productions Tr 1263, Stereo, 1981).  Christmas on the steel pans!  Nice.

4. Audience Sing-Gary Tucker, Conductor-Accompanists: Jane Lewis And Gary Tucker-Deck The Halls from Elmira Public Schools-Southside High School (Century 2xLP 34735, Stereo).  Yes, they recorded the audience singing along.  Don't think I've seen that before.

5. Bobby Christian And His Orchestra-Doll Dance from Mr. Percussion (Mercury SR60015, Stereo, 1958). I love these percussion albums. Happy that I could find something to share on there.

6. The Ringers On-The-Green-Fum, Fum, Fum from Ring And Sing-A Festival Of Music (Dharma GFL 1077 (Morristown, New Jersey), Stereo).  Yep, handbells!

7. Coventry Cathedral Boys' Choir-Directed By David Lepine, Robert Weddle-Organ-Gloria In Excelsis (From "Missa Brevis") from Coventry Cathedral Boys' Choir-Choirs Of Britian Series No. 2 (Chapter One CMS 1006, Stereo, 1971).  I don't think this is the well known Gloria...

8. Leonard Pennario, Pianist-Golliwog's Cake-Walk (No. 6 From Children's Corner Suite) from Humoresque (RCA Victor Red Seal LSC-2731, Stereo, 1964).  More music written for children that I'm passing off as Christmas.

9. Jimmy Jenson-Winter Wonderland (Valkin' In My Vinter Undervear) from The Swingin' Swede (aka This Is Jimmy Jenson...The Country Swingin' Swede!) (Jay Records LP-1001, Stereo).  Love this guy!  Where has he been all my life?

10. The Northern Illinois University Wind Ensemble-Stephen Squires, Conductor-A Yuletide Showcase from Alfred Concert Band Music (Alfred Publishing No Number, Stereo, 1988).  A rare band demo record that was credited to an actual band.

And that's it. Are we having fun yet?  I hope so.  Here's a link to the download.  See you later.

So is your favorite so far the Yogi Yorgesson impersonator?

My favorite varies moment to moment, but he's certainly one of the most interesting things I dug up this season. I think he may have more Christmas stuff, too, IIRC from Discogs. Certainly something to keep an eye out for.

Love the Norman Luboff entry in this set. Great song and great interpretation.
