CHRISTMAS 24: On the first day of Christmas.....
« on: December 01, 2018, 02:57:57 PM »


It's December and I like Christmas.  I lost my Mum earlier this year so this one feels different and I notice I'm feeling far more Christmassy and a lot earlier than I usually do.  So I want to warm into it with some cyber friends who share one of my biggest loves.   Other than explaining what it is when someone asks what music I like I don't get much chance to talk about it.

I plan to post something each day for the next 24 days in the build up to Christmas Day.  I haven't planned anything and I've been away all week so (as is always the case with me) it'll be on the fly, hit and miss but will hit the mark for some of you some of the time.

It gives me an excuse to pull out my 'corner records'.  They are a bugger to get to because there are piles of records in front of them and it's hard to pull things off the shelf with so little space; consequently they rarely see the light of day.

I just went up now and looked into the dark corner.; there's a stack of Chappells, a decent pile of those Selected Sound ST records, some 80's Italian ones I never even played, some Ember, a few MPs, Intersounds, Brull/ Harmonics, Ready, Red Bus, Spectrum, blah blah blah.
I wanted to get some of these out and get them ripped as well as make a note of what I have.

The only problem (and it is a small one) is I haven't been paying attention so I don't know what's already shared.   It's a shame to waste time ripping and upping something that everyone already has but it is likely to happen.  My rule of thumb-  I will do a search here and if it's not on the current forum I'll up it.

I often see something shared that I have had sat there and could have shared but didn't know what people wanted so in terms of Bruton, Sonoton, Southern, Peer, Amphonic, Sound Stage, De Wolfe, Boosey, Chappell, Rouge, Hudson... I have good runs.  I also have decent runs of Parry, Standard, Selected Sound, Studio G....


So bouncing into December comes a Bud Sherman/ Hans Schobert trio from Drive In/ Comes Records.

Thank you Retro for starting this mouth watering calendar! Looking forward to hear what you will share! These three look like something to start the day with tomorrow.

If you happen to have Nature's World vol 4 on Studio G that would be lovely! I have no idea on the other volumes of the series, so they would be interesting as well.

Sorry to hear about your loss.

Cheers. Didn’t realise they’d been shared -haven’t kept up.  I could’ve used the time to have done something else.  Still, 23 more days.

Many thanks for these - I missed the previous uploads, but this kind of German Tijuana Brass style stuff is right up my street!

Wow! What a kick-off to the Christmas season. You and Mr are getting the celebrations going early. Brilliant.

I'm very sorry to hear about your mother. I know it can be even tougher around the holidays. I hope all of us pals here at LMT can help a little to bring some cheer your way.
