A New Oldie

The share tonight is sort of a remaster, but sort of not. I shared out one side of this record many years ago, back in 2007, as part of a compilation I used to put together called 26 Days Of Christmas.  Well, actually it was 25 Days Of Christmas, then 26 Days Of Christmas, then 27 Days Of Christmas the last year I did it, but I never finished that year. Anyhow, the theme each year was just a random song from some random record that I happened to like at the moment, with no real plan or plot or anything, just something I found recently or liked at the moment.  It made for interesting compilations, but it was hard to keep up with and I wasn't very good at it.  More than once I wound up with the same song on the collection several times, just by different artists. I guess I should have paid a little better attention.  But anyhow, I recently found a nice clean promo copy of this old 45, so I thought I'd rip it anew and share it with you, including the flip side this time. I think it's pretty good stuff, and the Chree-See-Mus song is a great little tune if you've never heard of it.  This is one of only two versions I've ever heard, so I guess it was never very popular.  For your Tuesday night enjoyment, this is Commander Shea School Boys' Choir-St. Cecilia's Parish, New York City-White Christmas b/w Chree-See-Mus (Cadence 7" 45 RPM 1375 "Disc Jockey Record-Not For Sale", Mono, 1959).

Alfred Uhry is best known for writing Driving Miss Daisy, but he also was a librettist and lyricist. I'm interested to hear Chree-See-Mus.

It may not be on the same plane as Driving Miss Daisy. But then you never know...

Wasn't this version of Chree-See-Mus on one of the King's ADVENTures in '05 or '06 or some time?

Yes, I think The King put it on there, and then later put another version on by The King Sisters or The King Sisters' Kids or Cousins or something. :)
