2022 At 78 RPM-Part 19

Another week has gone by in a wink and it's time for another deep dip of Christmas music from The Internet Archive. I haven't touched the pile since last week, so there's probably no new artists in the share today, just the flip sides of things you've already heard, or things I finished up a month ago. I've been working on a special project for Christmas in hopes of actually getting something done in the next six months. Some things take a long time to bring to fruition, especially when you're too lazy for your own good. You have to strike when the motivation hits you, and I've been unusually energetic about Christmas the past two weeks. Anyhow, you'll have to wait and see about that come Christmas. In the meantime, here are twenty more great songs that you've probably never heard before, or at least these versions. It's a good batch of stuff!


Also of note, I heard back from the folks at The Great 78 Project, and they tell me they're going to redo all the bad rips that they could find. They do take this archiving stuff seriously, and it's a lot of effort to go back and do things twice. Glad that they were receptive to my notes. And my patched up fridge with the barn door hinges is still running like a champ. We even put all the pictures back up on it. Keeping my fingers crossed and my tax refund in the bank!
