81-Not At All Christmas

Last post for the year, and it's not even Christmas music. But it is an interesting promotional record from Christmas 1946, and it goes really well with the version from 1947 that I shared a few years ago. Not sure of the exact purpose behind this promo, it's pretty esoteric opera music, though I suppose there were collectors out there who were interested in it. Maybe it was given to dealers or something, but I doubt it ever was meant for the public.  Who knows? But it has a great label, and it's on red shellac, so it's something interesting.  Same as all the other shares this season, it came from The Internet Archive, your source for hundreds of thousands of 78 rips. Thanks again to all my visitors this season, it's been a great one.  Hopefully we can do it all again next year, but we'll have to wait and see.

Multitudinous cheers, not just for Ernie, but also for all the commenters and their very informative contributions. Ernie made the good parts really good. Commenters made it better. Many thanks to you all. I look forward to the next one of these, and will spend the interim in my ongoing track-by-track analysis of all the wonderful (along with the somewhat-less wonderful) collateral that I am so fortunate to access via random mouse-clicks.
One more time, thanks, Ernie!

Ernie--thank you. Almost every year I think, "he will never be able to top this!" And almost every year, somehow you do. It's a lot of work, but it is appreciated. Now take a break! We'll see you down the road!!
