Sorry about being a day late in posting this one. I'm not Jewish, and it was Thanksgiving.
Better late than never...

Happy Chanukah!

Enjoy!

Happy Time record




Yet another children's record i bought for the cool label graphics. The sounds are a bit crunchy, but the super dramatic organ on these is amazing.

Enjoy!

Green Door


A lively little ditty.

Check out my other blog to hear the version of Green Door released for grown-ups. It's a different recording, but the exact same song... Hear it HERE

Enjoy!

Red River Valley / Chisolm Trail


The graphics on some of these old kids records is stunning. I'm a big fan of this high contrast, bright color comic book style from the 1950s.
The artwork alone would have been worth the pocket change i paid for it, but there's music on it too... Old timey cowboy songs even!

The last less-than-a-second of Red river valley skips, so i just let it end like that instead of trying to fix it...

You'll hear it. I think it works, in a strange kind of way.

Silent Night


Sorry about the abrubt cut-off at the end... This is a really small record (the size of a CD) and my stupid automatic USB turntable will only go so far before it, well, automatically, stops playing. But yeah, I'm assuming that everyone's heard this song before- you didn't miss much....


I'm pretty sure this isn't the same Kingsmen who performed 'Louie Louie' in 1963...

Enjoy!

Git along little doggies



There will be more frequent posts in the future. For real this time. I'm sitting on tons of this stuff...
I recently moved (again) and finally got my records unpacked and sorted out- They've been in storage for the better part of a year, so i'm rediscovering stuff i had forgotten about... There's that, and things that i've picked up more recently.

Also, a friend has offered to lend me her collection of 50 or so kids 45s and 78s so they can be featured here... I looked through them already and with the exception of one or two titles, it's ALL stuff i don't already own! I'm pretty excited about that. So i'll be recording and scanning those in the next few weeks as well...

I picked up this gem at a flea market in Kentucky this past August. On a label i've never seen, with graphics that are too cool for words... It's too bad that one is a bit damaged. The other side is perfect though. Not bad for a 62 year old record that i paid a quarter for.

Get along
