Welcome to The Tuna Melt Music Sharity Blog!

It is here that I post old records that I've ripped
to Mp3 format (and grouped in .ZIP files) via File Sharing Sites,
album cover scans and, sometimes,
somewhat coherent ramblings related to said shares.

None of the shares here are "borrowed" from other blogs.
All of the items shared are rips of Out-of-Print
(or, at least, very difficult to get)
Vinyl Records from my own collection.

Come on in. Look around.
Scroll downward to find available links.
I hope you find something you like.

If you don't,
you can always come back later, as the variety
of what is made available should be pretty wide-ranging.

A Couple of Old Christmas Records

Here's a couple more shares to keep you in the Christmas spirit!

First off is one from Golden Tone Records, which was an Extreme Budget subsidiary of Precision Radiation Instruments, Inc. and was primarily used to re-release titles (usually abridged) from the Tops Records catalog. This record is by The International Choristers and features George Mather at the Mighty Console. It's got some interesting stuff on it.

The International Choristers featuring George Mather: Christmas Favorites
  1. Silent Night
  2. Deck the Halls
  3. Good King Wenceslaus
  4. Joy to the World
  5. It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
  6. Hark, the Herald Angels Sing
  7. The First Noel
  8. 'Twas the Night Before Christmas
  9. God Res Ye Merry, Gentlemen
  10. Away in a Manger
  11. O, Come All Ye Faithful
  12. Jingle Bells
Second is a collection from The Longines Symphonette Recording Society. The Symphonette Society was owned by the Longines watch company and was based in Larchmont, New York. They produced a syndicated radio program and manufactured their own albums of light classical and easy listening music through the 60s. The Longines Symphonette name was also used for a watch, a radio, a calculator, and a television? Go figure.

The Longines Symphonette: Silver Bells
  1. Silver Bells
  2. Scarlet Ribbons
  3. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
  4. Winter Wonderland
  5. One Little Tree
  6. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
  7. March of the Toys
  8. Away in a Manger
  9. Medley: I Saw Three Ships / We Wish You a Merry Christmas
  10. Medley: Wassail Song / Here We Come A-Wassailing
  11. Medley: It Came Upon a Midnight Clear / Good Christian Men Rejoice
  12. Silent Night

I've also listed all of the Christmas related posts from the past on The Tuna Melt. This ought to make it easy and keep folks from having to dig backwards into the archives to locate stuff...

Christmas Time... The Time for Giving...
