02-Christmas Starts Now

 
OK, enough talking, let's get this show on the road! Here's the first set of Christmas records I've got to share with you this season. No rhyme or reason here, though most days will have a light theme to them, I hope. These I just chose at random after I had pulled out a bunch of different themed songs. Like most days, it's a mixed collection of old standards and songs I bet you haven't heard, all sourced from the Internet Archive, then lightly cleaned to get rid of the worst of the surface noise and years' worth of wear and clicks. Then converted to mono MP3, united with a label scan and posted here for your Christmas enjoyment. I hope there's some stuff for you here to enjoy, and I'll see you back tomorrow.

Wonderful - I have some of these and have even shared a few, but there are many rare items that should provide great pleasure!

Just your usual Eddie Davis demo on Art Records. Same ol'. But, seriously, great-looking playlist, and I can't wait to hear Enoch Light on Remington!

Ernie said...

Thanks, guys. It's a mix of common and uncommon stuff, I try to be very broad in my dips. :) Hope I didn't stare out too much stuff that others have grabbed before, but I know I'm sharing out stuff that I've sometimes shared before from cleaner 45's or LP's. It's just all about the 78s this year. I love being able to share such a wide random set of stuff. :)

Another wonderful post. I'm go glad to have your blog available to hear these forgotten gems. Keep up the great work. Love it!

Ernie said...

Thanks everyone! Keep coming back, I've got a ton of goodies just like this to share with you all season! It's weird not to be sharing full albums, but it's good stuff, I think, and I was excited to find it.

Holy crow! I've waded through those archives and randomly searched and clicked on links for fun. This is an entirely different effort from years past, Ernie. Thanks for all of your work!

Ernie said...

Oh, it was a lot of fun. And a little easier to listen to now, I think. :) Though much of the stuff can be found elsewhere now, there's still quite a bit in there that is unavailable elsewhere. I was going to concentrate on just that stuff at first, but then the collector completist in me took over, and I just downloaded all sorts of good stuff. :)

Ernie, I can't thank you enough for these clean-ups of Internet Archive material. You and Buster have explored and, in the nicest sense, exploited this incredible treasure trove. There are scores of records that sonic dweebs like myself hope you will refurbish. In the meantime, this promises to be one of the most meaningful Christmas seasons--musically speaking--ever.

Hi Ernie-
Happy holidays! Great idea for this year's crop of shares. I'm looking forward to what you've curated from that large collection. Thanks in advance for sharing your efforts over the next month.
Best, Pete
