Rembering Goodyear And Firestone Christmas Albums

One of the real regrets I have around Christmas is that, with the demise of vynal records and record players, no one has ever thought to release on CD's those great old Firestone or Goodyear Christmas albums that they put out for years. There was some truly great Christmas music on there-Andy Williams, The Vienna Boy Chior, the Philadelphia Orchestra, Sammy Davis, Jr. The greatest version of "The Lord's Prayer" that I ever heard, by Richard Tucker, was on one of those albums.

I'd buy a bunch of those if they were on CD now.

Such a pity.

Anyone else remember those albums?

Agreed!

I have two of those Goodyear Christmas albums at home.
Not sure which vol# it is but there are well over 20 of them.

Can you put them on CD, Superfly?

I don't have a CD recorder yet. I'd be more than happy to record on to cassette tape for you.

Hey, that'd be great! If you can let me know. I'll pay you for the cassettes you use. I could get them on CD from there.

Why not? If they're going to be mine, why foot the cost? I'll even reimburse you for shipping. Do it for me, and I'll write you a check for the cassettes and shipping.

Now, don't go buying the most expensive cassettes you can find, just to bilk me, dude.  Big grin

Sure I can do that for you. I have a bunch of blank cassette tape I can use.
I have some unopened Maxell high-bias 90 minute tape. I think it's XLII.
You an't gettin' any of my METAL bias type IV tape.  no 
No worries about paying for the tape. Just spot me $3.50 for shipping.

My only concern is that my Goodyear Christmas albums aren't in excellent condition. They do have some surface noise but not a whole lot.
In terms of record condition, I'd give them a 'C'.

Jesus, you make it sound like I'm 116 or something!  Silly

I'm 44 years old, and as a kid, I grew up listening to those albums every Christmas. I loved them. One of my fondest memories of being young and of Christmas.

Most of those albums are available as we speak on E-bay, for just a couple of bucks per record.

Falcon 84, I can get you ten of them for less than $20 if you can approve my doing so within the next two hours...

I have a bunch of the albums myself, but no longer have a record player from which to record them. Haven't had one in years. About 12 years ago, my wife bought me about 6 of them at Goodwill, for like $1 a piece, but they're buried away somewhere, with other old albums, and they're really of no use anymore.

Some record company should reproduce them. I think they'd sell like hotcakes.

Many of those songs are on CD but not in the same compilation of the Goodyear releases.
I am leaving work now and I'll make you the tape when I get home.

ROTFL. Good one, but I think I'm right. A lot of people would love them. There is some wondeful music on those old recordings.

I've already made your tape last night.
It's two records on one cassette (Vol 4 and 9).
I brought it in to work so I can have it shipped out this morning.
