22-Another Scoop

High time I did another collection of random 78s pulled from the pile with no rhyme or reason. I try to make sure I've got all sorts of theme days first, then I can make a collection like this of all the random tracks that don't fit into any of my themes. But to be honest, I suspect these collections are more fun, with a very eclectic mix of Christmas music from shellac. As is the custom this year, all original rips and scans are courtesy of the fine folks at The Internet Archive, without whom I would only be able to share from my own small collection of vintage 78s, and I'm sure they wouldn't sound as good as their rips. I have gone in and done a little bit of sweetening on their music, but trust me, it's not too much. I hope you're having a great Christmas season so far, the big day will be here before you know it. I need to get busy and do some Christmas shopping one of these days, I hope it's not too late.

Another fascinating (and long!) collection, with a few things I've shared myself and many more I've never encountered. Special thanks for the Ray Anthony-Ronnie Deauville record, which I don't think I've seen before.

Thanks, Buster. Hope you don't mind my sharing out some of the same stuff as you have. I avoided plenty of stuff that I've seen elsewhere for a long time, but in the end I grabbed a lot of stuff that I knew was already out there, even some stuff that I've previously shared from vinyl sources. I wanted to get the widest variety of stuff possible. Even that Ray Anthony I have on a 45, IIRC. :)

A prolific post, Ernie! It'll take a while to listen to all of this one...and I look forward to it. Thanks.

You want to do some Christmas shopping? As the song says, "Don't Wait Till The Night Before Christmas"!

Good point, Jeepster! And I'm sure that song will feature a few more times around here this season. It was a lot more popular back in the day than I realized.

Thanks, all, for the comments!
