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.

Various Artists: Winter Warnerland

'Tis the Season to Promote Your Stuff!

That, apparently, is what Warner Bros. Records was thinkin' back in the 80s. I posted a 1987 compilation of Warner Bros. artists performing Christmas related materials, called "Yulesville!", when I was here back in July of last year. Now, in response to a request, I'm postin' this one from 1988. It, like the other, features both music and spoken word "Holiday Greeting" messages.

Note that this is a rip from the Compact Disc, which contains more tracks than the vinyl pressing. Silly Earthling Traitor Vic only posts old vinyl records here but I, being from Mars, am not constrained by such trivial concerns. Bah! As there are 37 tracks here (@ 320kbps), I've split the post into two pieces.
