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.

The Anita Kerr Quartette: For You, For Me, For Evermore


You Need Another Anita Kerr Record


Even if you, like myself, have reached the point at which you must back-up and remove files from your hard drive in order to load even one more song into your music player, this one is an absolute necessity.

"For You, For Me, Forevermore" (released in 1959 or 1960) shows the beginnings of the "Countrypolitan" Nashville Sound that helped Country Music cross over into the American cultural mainstream in the 60s. You may recognize, in some of the arrangements, a style of harmony that would later be utilized extensively as The Anita Kerr Quartette (as well as the 8-voice Anita Kerr Singers) provided background vocals to many of Country & Western's biggest stars. This is definitely not at Country Music album, however, and is filled with beautiful arrangements of classic love songs.

My only complaint is that, despite the number of times throughout the album the promise is made that they're going to stay with me Forever and Ever 'Til the End of Time, the record is only about 30 minutes long.

  1. For You, For Me, Forevermore
  2. Till the End of Time
  3. Forever
  4. I'll Always Love You (Querida Mia)
  5. Never Leave Me
  6. All My Life
  7. Why Can't This Night Go on Forever
  8. I'll Always Be in Love With You
  9. This Is Always
  10. Always
  11. Everyday
  12. Twelfth of Never

Exquisite. Thx for setting just the right tone for a mellow weekend in tiki-land.

Traitor Vic said...

Wheehah! I am, of course, always happy to help! This does seem to be turning out to become a Totally Tiki Weekend, doesn't it? Perhaps it's the bottle of Trader Vic's Macadamia Nut Liqueur that I got from my lovely Valentine!
