Jan August - "Martha"

"Martha" is the flip side to Cow Cow Blues which I posted back in February of 2011.
The song, "Martha" is adapted from the Friedrich Von Flowtow opera of the same name.

George Wright - "Tumbling Tumbleweeds/Brazilian Sleigh Bells"

Here is something a bit different from Dad's 45s and somewhat fitting for the holiday season.
George Wright (August 28, 1920 in Orland, California – May 10, 1998 in Glendale, California) was an American musician, possibly the most famous virtuoso of the theatre organ of the modern era.
Wright was best known for his virtuoso performances on the huge Wurlitzer theater pipe organs at the famed Fox Theater on Market Street in San Francisco and the ornate Paramount Theaters in both New York and Oakland. He was in constant demand during the 1940s, '50s and early '60s, playing at concerts and recitals around the world.
Here is side 1 of a 4-song E.P. that was released on the HiFi Record label in 1956.
