FANTASY IN PIPE ORGAN AND PERCUSSION

by Georges Montalba



SOMERSET RECORDS
SF-8400
STEREO
1959


SIDE A:



Danse Macabre (Saint-Saens)
Mazurka From Masquerade (Khatchaturian)
March Fantasy (Hunter-Emig)
In A Persian Market

download


SIDE B:



Theme From Scheherazade (Rimsky-Korsakov
Ritual Fire Dance (Manuel de Falla)
Polovtsian Dances (Borodin)

download

Editor's note: this one is fairly hit-or-miss to me. I prefer the slower and more melancholy pieces over the symphonic marching band ones. Not necessarily because of the style but due to the genre it's being played in.

YOU CANT FIGHT WHAT YOU FEEL

by Phil Fuldner Works


KOSMO MUSIC
KOS2003
2000


SIDE A:



You Can't Fight What You Feel (Full Show)

download


SIDE B:

COPYRIGHT VIOLATION!

You Can't Fight What You Feel (Boogie Amped)
You Can't Fight What You Feel (Andy Fis Rework)

Editor's note: this is not what I'd normally buy but since I went thrifting before work and didn't have time to Google search before buying this is what you get. Either way I've never heard this or the musician before so it's obscure enough to me. Though I wish I had recorded the yoga album by Ruth Bender or the organ with percussion albums before this. But this is way shorter and I have things to do. Now you do, too. Well...you did. SIDE B is showing copyrighted and has been deleted by the host sight. Oh well.

As an aside, if you really care, the B side label shown is actually the A side and vice versa. At least that's what the wax scrawl shows. It just seems that they should be the other way around.

PETER PAN PEANUT BUTTER BRINGS YOU YOUR DAVY CROCKETT RECORD (minus the featured song!)

by The Sandpipers with the Mitchell Miller Orchestra


WONDERLAND MUSIC COMPANY
DF100
1950s


SIDE A:



I'm Lonely My Darlin' (Green Grow the Lilacs)

download

Editor's note: the B-side, The Ballad of Davy Crockett, which was the real A-side on this record, as he was the boyhood mainstay of that era, was scarred beyond respectable playability. Thus, I didn't bother posting the scratched and skipping monstrosity. Somehow, you'll survive.

IT'S THE GOING THING


by The Going Thing


FORD MOTOR COMPANY
XCTV-141133
1968
    

SIDE A:



The Going Thing
I Would Like To Get To Know You
Bossananny Medley
The Warranty Song
The Varsity Drag
Scarlet Ribbons
Tijuana Taxi
I Dig Rock And Roll Music

download

Editor's note: if you enjoyed the Christmas Version of Ford Motor Company's late 1960s glee club rockers then you'll gladly add this to your mp3 collection. Yeah, it's just as bad and cheesy. Which is a good thing for record blogs such as this that have nothing of substance to add to your life.

A SALUTE TO KROGER STORE MANAGERS B/W OLD MCDONALD HAD SOME SOUP

by Evelyn Knight & The Modernaires


RADIO RECORDERS
78 RPM


SIDE A:



A Salute to Kroger Store Managers by Evelyn Knight

download


SIDE B:



Old McDonald Had Some Soup by The Modernaires

download

Editor's note: obviously this is some kind of commercial promo for each company from the 1950s or thereabouts. The singing by the Modernaires seems really low when the raspy-voiced dude sings but maybe that was a thing then. Evelyn Knight had a handful or two of top ten hits and a couple number ones including the song featured here with altered lyrics, A Little Bird Told Me.

SIDE B:

Editor's note: I expected to be back much sooner but am also surprised that I ever posted here again because it's a lot of work. Thankless and mindless as it gives nothing of myself save for wasted energy spent. And for what? Had it not been for comments concerning the recent death of Danny Holley and my recent purchase of Obsessional Schizophrenia I may never have posted. I'm glad I did. Expect another short recording soonly.
