IN HONOR OF FA LA LA LA LA's CELEBRATION OF CHRISTMAS AND A HALF (JUNE 25TH) I THOUGHT I WOULD RE-SHARE A COUPLE OF CHRISTMAS THINGS HERE:
Pebbles And Bamm Bamm Singing Songs Of Christmas Zip File
The Grinch has successfully displaced Ebeneezer Scrooge as the spirit of anti-Christmas for today's audience. And there are similarities. Just as Tiny Tim was a strong factor in Ebeneezer's redemption, the children are a strong factor in the Grinch's redemption.
It's a pleasure to be able to hear the great Boris Karloff narration, along with the songs, and then afterwards to again hear the songs reprised.
Of course, this is a short CD, just barely 30 minutes in length. One must realize that while the program was supposed to be a half hour long, nearly a third of the time was used for toy advertisements. The irony of it all, a beautiful story telling us that the joy of Christmas is in the spirit of Christmas, not in the getting toys is aired for the purpose of selling overpriced and non-imaginative toys.
The Tracks Are:
1. How The Grinch Stole Christmas (The Story)(21:36)
2. Welcome Christmas(1:41)
3. Trim Up The Tree(2:56)
4. You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch(2:56) Sung by Thurl Ravenscroft (aka Tony The Tiger)
5. Welcome Christmas (Reprise)(3:35)
How The Grinch Stole Christmas Soundtrack - Boris Karloff 320kbps
I just thought I would share the link here to the web page I made for this LP rip. Here's the link:
A Spike Jones Christmas
It is actually a pretty good collection of Christmas Songs picked out by Spike's Kids. With that Spike Jones typical zanyness thrown in here and there.
This is a Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes OTR Show called "The Night Before Christmas".
