Christmas In July 2019-Part 71

Good morning!  Only three short days left for Christmas in July, so I've got to push out as much music as I can so that I don't have to worry about it next year.  Here's your first share of ten tracks for the day.

1. Majorette Records-March Of The Toy Soldiers from The Big Parade (Majorette Records M-306, Mono, 1965).  A budget record for children.  No artist listed, so I went with the label name instead of my usual Unknown Artist I've been using a lot this year.  Don't know why...

2. The Combined Choirs Of St. Mary's Visitation Church, Dickson City, Pa.-Narodzi┼é Sie Jezus Chrystus-Jesus Christ Is Born from Midnight Mass At St. Mary's (Dub Recording Company D.D. 1155/1156, Mono, 1965).  Still enjoying all this Polish Christmas music.  I hope you are too.

3. Bethany College Choir-Elmer Copley, Conductor-Ruth Copley, Accompanist-Nu Ar Dei Jul Igen from Bethany College Choir-Lindsborg, Kansas 1963-1964 (Stucky's Recording Service SRS-1864, Mono, 1964).  I've always liked this Swedish Christmas carol.  I run into it in all sorts of odd places, even though it's not too well known in the US.

4. Redlands High School Concert Choir-Director, Wilbur H. Schowalter-O Sing Unto The Lord from Redlands High School Concert Choir 1964-65 (Handel Record Mfg. H-2008 (on Sleeve) H-2009 (on Label) Blue Vinyl, Mono, 1965).  So far, everything tonight seems to be coming from a pretty tight time frame.  Not sure how that happened, I didn't do anything intentionally.

5. Dr. Charles Farley, Organist-Carol-Prelude On "Greensleeves" from Allen Digital Computer Organ, Systems 120 And 201 (Allen 29234, Side 2 Recorded At Homewood Evangelical Free Church, Moline, Illinois, On The System 201, Stereo).  Even though there's no date with this one, I'm pretty sure it's out of our mid-60's time frame.  So much for that theme.

6. Chet Baker And The Carmel Strings-Christmas Song from Quietly There (World Pacific (Liberty) WPS-21847, Stereo, 1966).  My last Chet Baker track of the season takes us back into the mid-60's.

7. Gerald Eskelin And The L.A. Jazz Choir-A Gift From The Stars Above from Hal Leonard Presents A Choral Spectrum (Youth Edition) (Hal Leonard Publishing HLP-11, Stereo, 1984).  The first demo track, well outside the time-frame.

8. Unknown Artist-Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring from Choral Celebration Vol. V (Jenson Publications JP-4000, Stereo, 1983).  Again, a demo track outside the mid-60's.

9. Phil Moody, Hony-Tonk Piano; Nick Fatool, Drums; Frank Harrison, Banjo-Oh, You Beautiful Doll from Urania Stereo Sampler (Urania USS 58, Stereo, 1958).  Too early, and not very Christmassy.

10. Brendan O'Dowda With The Westminster Sinfonia, Conducted By Merrick Farran-Panis Angelicus from Mine Eyes Have Seen The Glory (Musicor MS3081, Stereo, 1965).  Right back in proper time, but not a Christmas song.  Sorry.

That's it, ten and out.  Download here.  See you later.
