Chris Wilson - All The Joy

I had a pretty good week but busy as usual. Went looking for records but came up short. Here is a nice little rarity for your listening pleasure. As usual, I love those promo Columbia 45s

Royal Guardsmen - Snoopy's Christmas

Merry Christmas. I hope everyone had a wonderful day. Let's end our celebration with a novely song shall we. The poor Royal Guardsmen were painted into the novely band box but they actually had some songs that were very well done. Unfortunately, those songs were not pushed as much as the Snoopy songs. I am love the Laurie label and also love picture sleeves. The Laurie label put out few picture sleeves and this 45 is significant in that it is the last picture sleeve Laurie put out.

Drifters - The Christmas Song

How about another R&B Christmas song

Tex Beneke, Ray Eberle, The Modernaires, with Paula Kelly

Here is another unusual xmas 45 I found. Columbia loved the color vinyl 45's and put out some nice ones by the Byrds, Dylan, Dion, ect. But I think I have seen more like these that you can find anywhere. Normally I don't like them, but this one has a classy jazz feel to it.

Nelson Young- Christmas Time Is Near

Every year I put together a Christmas CD and give it out to friends, co-workers, and school mates. I am often asked months in advance about the CD and it is always a mixture of oldies, punk, hillbilly country, soul and very rarely does it have a traditional version/song heard on the radio. Well, this year I recyled, or rather came up with a "best of " and gave out to classmates and to the staff where I did my field placement. I just did not have time to tape 45's into the computer this year. I am always on the look out for Christmas 45's and always discover a new gem I did not know of. I don't know if anyone else will think this one is a gem but I picked it sometime over the past year. Don't know anything about the artist, label but I thought it was pretty cool.

Flirtations - Christmas Time Is Here Again

OK, so I've bummed off a bit. Had planned to do a whole week of Christmas but alas, I had a bit of a slow start. Here is a good one to make up for my laziness.

Monotones - When Will I Be Loved

Wow, it has been a few weeks. I've been absolutely exhausted. But my field placement and my other class are finished for the semester (both A's by the way!). So, I will probably get slowly back into this. I have some vacation coming so I plan on taping and scanning. So, now is the time to send me your wish list while I have a chance to dig into my collection.
