Equaling the thrill of finding Wanda Jackson's "Right or Wrong" in the record store was finding this gem of an album while rifling through the hundreds of "new" records in the store. This is a record by Jamie of "Js with Jamie" fame, and it is fantastic.
Readers of Christmas music blogdom may be familiar with "Js with Jamie". Jamie and the Js recorded a handful of truly excellent Christmas songs, far too few in my opinion. Thanks to the world of the Internet, these songs resurfaced over at WMFU's Beware of the Blog. Other Christmas music bloggers picked up on the shares and spread the word of these remendous recordings.
So, finding this record of Jamie and the post-Js J. Silvia singers was indeed a treat. The record is in beautiful condition, which shows in the quality of the rips (in my humble opinion).
Searching the WMFU Blog will lead you to several (perhaps all) of Jamie's records, including the Christmas songs. Old friend Ernie rates the Christmas songs as the best of the year, in a past post.
In an interesting Internet-enabled tale, Jamie's daughter found the WMFU links and commented. Through these and other posts, Jamie's daughter tells us that Jamie is pleased that her recordings are being enjoyed by a new audience.
Please enjoy my rip of "Encore" by Jamie and the J. Silvia singers. And visit WMFU to collect the rest.
