04-Instrumental Christmas

 

Here's a really fun collection of instrumental Christmas music, again sourced from The Internet Archive. A couple of double-sided versions here, but most of it is stand-alone stuff. And I think there's one track in here that I first shared out with you as a secret bonus track found only in the comments of a post back during A Very Covid Christmas earlier in the year. That series never went very far, so most of those items are coming out here again, especially the bonus stuff that no one knew about. I also see some great jazz in here, some piano stuff that just may knock your socks off, and what may be the only 12" record in the whole season, though it still spins at a zippy 78 RPM.  And there's at least one track that was a favorite find several years during Christmas in July from an appearance on a random LP, but this is from the original 78 issue.  Enjoy!

Ernie, Your restorations are superb. I downloaded Bonnemere's superb latin cocktail "White Christmas" and your dub sounds so much better. You are going to make this the most enjoyable holiday season in years. I can't thank you enough.

Great material here, Ernie! Many thanks for this wonderful series. The only problem is that there are very few organ players or kids' choirs to make fun of.

Ernie said...

Thank you, gentlemen! There's organ in here, and Latin piano, all worth your time and effort. :) Plenty more to come!

Why posting albums that you can get at archive? Please post albums that we can`t find anywhere else. Thank you ... and Merry Christmas in advance.

Some people just don't get it, I guess... :(

some people are never happy.
I, however, love these instrumentals.
If you could have seen the smile when
I played them this am while starting
the decorating process...

thanks,

This batch is especially excellent. Boy, that Futurama label is a real beaut too. Thanks, Ernie!

Thank ya'll for the comments.

I love some of these old labels. That's what inspired me to do the animated GIFs at the beginning of the season. They're just so cool to look at!
