Stop in, look around, have a drink and crank some tunes. I'll be posting some songs ripped from records, some out of print and hard to find stuff, some songs by artists you should be listening to, and a few mixes here and there.

Fred Warring And The Pennsylvanians

One of my first Christmas memories is looking at this cover and listening to Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer. I listened to it over and over. It's still one of my Christmas favorites. Here are three songs off of Fred Warings gread record. I always wondered why this never made it to cd. I did find it on cassette once...

UPDATE - I fixed Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. The ending was clipped off but now it is fixed.

FRED WARING :: 'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS

why bother to post only a few tracks from LPs that you can get in their entirety at other sites? seems like a waste of time.

I grew up with this album, and used to run around the room to Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer and then fall to the ground when Rudolph crashes. You know how one Christmas album seems to capture every happy memory of Christmas you have as a child? Well, this album does that for me....actually, my whole family loves and cherishes this album. Thanks for sharing!!

To complainer - I like to post my favorite songs from some of my favorite albums. Everything here has probably been posted other places. This is just a blog of my favorite stuff. We all don't have a checklist and yell dibs on records. If another blog wants to post something here, they should because it's probably a fav of theirs. I would never be offended. Just posting samples (and sometimes whole albums) of my collection. If it's music I love, can't I post some of it on my blog?

Hey would you happen to have the song by little Rita Faye called "I fell Out of A Christmas Tree"? I know it was on two different albums, one from the 50's called "Christmas is for Children" and another in 1996 called "Children's Christmas" I have looked EVERYWHERE! I am trying to find it for my son in laws grandmother for Christmas and for my daughter, they were both born on Christmas.If you know where I can find it please email me at kalypso@comcast.net

Thanks in advance!

Hey, I just noticed this weekend that Fred Warring's Jingle Bells is used in the movie "A Christmas Story."

Pretty cool!

I might have that Rita Faye song on a cassette somewhere...I know a friend of mine has the 45, but he no longer lives in the same town as me.

I'll see if I can at least dig up the cassette version.

I grew up with this one, too. It was always my favorite cover art of my parents' Chistmas stuff. Thanks for the blast from my past!

Sorry - Don't have that Rita Faye song. I'll keep an eye out for it though.
