Eighth Day Of Christmas - Happy New Year

Today's offering is "If You Knew How Long I've Been So Good For Christmas" by Howie Stevie on the Jamie Records label.

Seventh Day Of Christmas

After yesterday's lapse in memory, I added the link before doing anything else. This is a great track by Linda Mann with Orchestra and Chorus conducted by Dick Friesen on the Pace Records label. The song is "It's Christmastime In Fairyland." Sanity Clause would like to wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Sixth Day Of Christmas

Santa has used lots of modes of transportation other than his sleigh if you believe all the songs. Here's at least the second about a helicopter. Gene Autry recorded "Santa' Coming In A Whirleybird" and in 1976 Clinton Caldwell gave us "Santa's Copter." This single was released on the Omni Label. Listen for the line about greasy elves! More tomorrow!

I guess Santa must have had too much of the fifth on the sixth! Sorry for leaving off the link earlier today. Here it is!

The Fourth Day Of Christmas

Today, I offer you the story of "Everett The Evergreen." This little ditty is sung by The Country Cavaleers and Children's Christmas Choir and was released on the Country Showcase America label. Think Charlie Brown's Christmas tree being rescued by orphans. Oh, joy!

Second Day Of Christmas

On the second day of Christmas, Sanity shares with you a little Latin flavor in the form of "Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer Cha Cha" by Hernando Hopkins and Orchestra. This is my rip of the single on the ABC Paramount label. Happy boxing day!

Tuesday's Twofer

Today I share with you two sides of country Christmas. One, the side that makes you laugh, is Lonzo and Oscar's take on "Jangle Bells." Two, the side that makes you drop a tear in your beer, is Elton Britt singing "Christmas In November." Don't say I didn't warn you if you get caught short on hankies!

Sanity's Sharity For Friday

Here are a couple of records I purchased recently which I thought people might enjoy.
One is by a Kansas City, MO group called "The Classmen." The songs are "Elvin The Little Black Elf" and "Christmas Eve By The Golden Gate." This group seems to have released at least a half-dozen singles in the KC area during the 1960's.
The other record is by Sonny Bloch's Coralairs from South Florida. "Buon Natale" was later covered by Nat "King" Cole and is fairly well known. The flip side is "Louis The Elf" and fun for the kiddies.
I'll try to post the labels later.
