Shirley Abicair - On The Nursery Beat

Shirley Abicair with the Mike Sammes Singers - On The Nursery Beat

Released 1965 the only recording by Shirley Abicair I ever come across is "Little Boy Fishing" I have never seen it on a 45 but it is on many Children's Favorites CD compilations.

The Track listing for side one on the cover is different to the record label I have listed the tracks as they appear on the label. There are some distortions on side 1 on the first track I did try to remove them but the track sounded worse so I left them in.

The track in the music round of the Pub Quiz last Monday that stumped most teams was "Eve Boswell - Pickin' A Chicken" another record I have not yet found on a 45.

It has started to rain here it may put people off selling/buying at tomorrows Boot sale.

Kirsten Flagstad - Songs For Xmas

Wrong time of year for Christmas records this was among some records that I acquired recently, the record is single sided and has the matrix number EFF-1265-1A in the dead wax searching the internet all I have manged to find out about this record is there is a copy of theEP for sale in New Zealand.
The correct title is "Songs For Christmas" Kirsten Flafstad with the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Sir Adrian Boult.
There is a lot of information about Kirsten Flagstad (12/07/1895-07/12/1962) a well renowned Opera singer.
I think this copy is a pre 1960 test pressing.

Also in the bag was an Acetate of the "12 Days Of Christmas" on playing it sounded like "Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters"

Tim Andrews - Sad Simon Lives Again / You Won't Be Seeing Me Anymore

The "A" side of this 1967 release has appeared in the "Piccadilly Sunshine" Series of CD's, the "B" side of this record is in poor condition, the Normie Rowe record looked in even worse condition but it played much better than this record.
