47-Some Favorites

Today features a selection of songs from some point a couple of months ago when I was putting together my themes when I decided I would assemble a group of my favorite found songs. It certainly wasn't the first theme I put together because I can think of plenty of other songs I'd have liked to put in here, but it's a good selection of stuff and I like every song here. I'm sure you'll like them as well, you might even love them. Big thanks to The Internet Archive for finding, ripping and sharing each of these selections! They do good work over there.  Enjoy!

Great collection (with the possible exception of the Jimmy Boyd record)!

Why is everyone so hard on Jimmy Boyd? I actually nought a CD collection (used, mind you) with many of his Xmas recordings on it. The music world loves sequels as much as the film world. Did you ever hear the atrocious sequel Eartha made to "Santa Baby"? Like I say, "Leave bad enough alone." But, hey, isn't Christmas music mostly about crap that we somehow forgive for being so--in the Christmas spirit? I learned a lot about tolerance from bad holiday songs.

Don't ask me, I like the guy...

Ma! "My Toys Are Broken" is... surreal. It almost sounds like Spike Jones provided some of the backing. Seems more in the manner of a British music hall number. Interesting collection, as always!

Er, I meant, "Ma! My Toys Are Broken."

Is that Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis on "Christmas South Of Dixieland"?

JustaJeepGuy said...


Uh, I don't think it is "Lockjaw"...

Ernie said...

It's a good batch of stuff. :)

Lee-How could I pass it up? :)

Jeepster-I'm not familiar with his music, so I couldn't say if it's the same guy or not. I wanna say I saw some releases under the same name on the same label, actual releases, not demos, but now I can't find them in a hurry... :(

@Ernie,

Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis is a jazz man, but not a singer as far as I know. I really don't think it's him. I am certainly open to correction though.

A little poking around at IA yields another Eddie Davis demo (also written by the same guy), and a couple more straight releases on the same label. Hard to tell if the other Eddie Davis records listed are the same guy. ART seemed to be a smaller label out of South Florida.
