80-The Last Little Bits

Here we go, the last full post of the season. I had fully intended to end the season yesterday, with what I think is a better post, but then I stumbled across many of the short songs in this post, and figured I'd do one more day.  With a little digging I came up with a couple more things, but no good pop songs like I wanted. So instead you get a 104 year old Mother Goose Christmas story that sounds a little off to our modern ears, but it's always cool to listen to something that's more than a century old. And the Value Hit Parade Tunes are just horrid, not the sort of thing I should share at all, but I didn't realize that until after I had downloaded it. There's also one track in here, called Winter, that is a repeat. I previously shared it from a lonely 78, and then it showed up again in it's proper album context, so I've properly tagged it here to go with the other songs from the set. You can find the original share here, and delete it from your download if you want to avoid a duplicate. It's been such a long great year, there's so much I wanted to say. Some of that will have to wait until tomorrow when I have one final non-Christmas Christmas share for you, which is absolutely non-essential, but neat. Before that, I want to again thank the folks at The Internet Archive for collecting, ripping and sharing such a great collection of 78s for the world to enjoy. The Christmas section over there is only 1% of what they have, so please don't think it's limited to just what you see here. It's awesome, with something new to discover around each and every corner. I also want to thank all my visitors, especially those who took the few seconds to comment about something. It's comments that keep a blog going, and the many comments I've received this season have certainly kept me going this extra month. I hope you have all found at least a few neat little songs that you'll enjoy for many Christmas seasons to come. I know I've got a whole lot of new favorites, and that's tough to do when you have been collecting Christmas music as long as I have.  But if there's anything this hobby has taught me, it's that there is always something new and different and good out there, you just have to work to find it. With all that said, here's your share for the day. Download and enjoy!

Ernie, such a cool idea, diving through the resources of the internet archive to find all the treasures you've shared this year. How you keep things straight I have no idea, but the amount and diversity of music you've shared has brought happiness to many, myself included. Many thanks to you for all the work, time, and effort you've put into this, and I hope you get some well deserved rest over the upcoming months.
