GOODYEAR BEST OF THE GREAT SONGS OF CHRISTMAS ALBUM TEN (1970). "Although the GSC series often repeated performances from album to album, this was the only edition marketed as such."



GOODYEAR TIRE CHRISTMAS RECORD SERIES VOLUME 10 "THE BEST OF" ZIP FILE


"THE JOYOUS SONGS OF CHRISTMAS"(1971) AKA GOODYEAR VOLUME 11. Since this was the first album in the series to not bear the name 'The Great Songs of Christmas', it was thought that 'Joyous' would be the new name for the series in the Seventies. Instead, this was the only release with the 'Joyous' name:

"HENRY MANCINI SELECTS GREAT SONGS OF CHRISTMAS" GOODYEAR VOLUME 15 ZIP FILE


AS A READER OF MY BLOG HERE, PDMAN, JUST POINTED OUT TO ME THERE WAS ACTUALLY 17 OF THESE GOODYEAR LPS. VOLUME #16 WAS ACTUALLY AN LP THAT WAS A REMAKE OF MANCINI'S 1966 CHRISTMAS LP. IT WAS TITLED GOODYEAR - "MANCINI MOODS AT CHRISTMASTIME". I NOW HAVE THIS LP EVEN THOUGH I DIDN'T REMEMBER I ALREADY HAD MANCINI 1966 LP WHICH IS IDENTICAL TO THIS GOODYEAR LP. I'VE EVEN INCLUDED SCANS OF THE TWO VERSIONS OF MANCINI'S 1966 CHRISTMAS LP:











GOODYEAR VOLUME 16 - "MANCINI MOODS AT CHRISTMASTIME" ZIP FILE


"GREAT SONGS OF CHRISTMAS" PERRY COMO & EUGENE ORMANDY (1977) AKA GOODYEAR VOLUME 17. "This may have been a very limited release as it is not commonly found and was not marketed in all areas." I was able to finally find a copy of this one at an online LP seller. As usual since then several copies have shown up on ebay. oh well...lol."
THIS ONE I GOT STILL SEALED SO IT OUGHT TO SOUND PRETTY GOOD:

Thanks for the posts. The download link for Goodyear vol. 9 actually goes to vol. 8

Dave said...

Ok. They should all be in the proper order now. Sorry.

johnny dollar said...

that carols and candlelight, volume 14, was my rip, i believe. i don't mind that it's reposted here, although a credit would be nice :D

happy new year! great blog!

Dave said...

Yep. You're right. I tracked it back, and I got it off from your post on the FaLaLaLa Forum. Thanks.
Dave

Robert Pope said...

I can't say THANKS too big or too loud. FINALLY, Steve Lawrence's "Twas the Night Before Christmas" and all the other swingin' goodies. You're a king!

ballardkringle said...

Enjoy your site! However vol. 11's download link is listed as not available at this time.

Dave said...

Keep trying. Eventually it will be available. Some files do that now and then for some reason.
Dave

Kwork said...

Very awesome. Look forward now to the rest.

Kwork said...

Ok. I just figured out why people aren't getting volume 11. The link that people are clicking on has a space and some extra characters at the end that don't belong there. The link should read as
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=RHMBV41L

By using that link, I had no trouble getting the zip file. Just thought I'd let you know. Thanks.

Dave said...

Thanks. For some reason the " at the end of the hyperlink URl got skipped down to the next line so it placed a space that wasn't supposed to be there. Should be ok noe.

dave

Kwork said...

Yep. All connects now as it should. Thanks for fixing that.

ballardkringle said...

Yes, the vol.11 link now worked for me too today! I've been enjoying the Goodyear shares. My father was a Goodyear dealer during the time these albums were issued and I remember listening to these albums many times growing up. It brings back many great yuletide memories. Thanks again for your efforts!

Dave -

I've been on a quest for several years to collect the entire Goodyear catalog; it was a staple of my childhood christmases that, unfortunatley was lost with the passage of time. I can now play these albums for my family and pass on the tradition.

Thanks for bringing back my childhood, as it were!

-Tim

Dave said...

Glad I could help. One day RCA may re-release them all on CD, but until they do I am going to offer them for everyone who grew up with them like you and I did. I feel the same way about the W.T. Grant and the J.C.Penny Christmas LPs. My Dad did not have everyone of them. The ones he did have were a staple of our holiday time listening at our house though. Thanks to some online sources I was able to give my Dad the complete set of W.T.Grant Lps on CD-R for Christmas this past year. He loved them of course. Thanks for coming, and please pass it forward whenever and wherever you can.

Thanks so much for posting the Firestone and Goodyear collections.
So many memories come flooding back when I listen to these classic recordings. I tried down-
loading Goodyear,vol 8 last night and got a message saying that the file was "corrupted". Is it just me? Thanks again. You're the greatest.

Deac

Dave said...

Glad you liked them. I tried downloading the file, and it came through fine for me. No clues why you might have had problems. Sorry.

PDMan said...

As I was doing a little research on the Goodyear LP's, I found out that the Perry Como, Volume 16 is actually Volume 17. There was a Volume 16 that was entirely Mancini - in fact, it was a rehash of Mancini's Christmas LP. It was titled Mancini Moods at Christmastime or something like that.

Dave said...

Thanks for that info. That must be why there is a years gap between what I have listed as #15 and #16.

Dave

Dave said...

I just did a search for that newly found mancini Lp, and I came across this Mancini Discogrpahy webiste:
Henry Mancini Discograohy
It does list the Lp, and even has excellent scans of the front and back covers of it, and just about ALL of Mancini's LPs. I'll have to update my blog, and go on a hunt to add this to my list to buy. I've already found all 16 of the other LPs.

Thank you so much for posting the entire Goodyear Christmas record series. I had a number of these while growing up, but they've all disappeared over time. Your posts brought back many great memories.

I am having difficulty downloading volume 13; all seems to work well until I click on the "free download" button. Instead of receiving the "save' prompt, I get sent to a new home page where I am instructed to type in 3 more letters. I've tried this a number of times and have still not been able to download the file. Any ideas?

Once again, many thanks!

Dave said...

Those are verification numbers that you should get for each download unless you have a Premium Account. Just enter those 3 numbers CORRECTLY, and you should be able to go forward with the download.

Vol 13 downloaded just fine for me this evening. Go figure!
Thanks for your quick response.

Dave said...

YVW. That happens some times.

Thanks for all the great info. I also remember and still have a different version of album eight that has a red gatefold cover with a green vinyl on one side and red vinyl record on the other. Does anyone else have this version?

tb

Dave said...

I'd like to see that one.

Carol said...

It appears that Megaupload has killed the links.

Dave said...

Yes that is why I've had to start doing all of my sharing at the Yuku Forum link as shown on the very top page of the forum.

Dave

Melissa said...

dave can you post the link to the new site you are sharing these great songs on??? I need them so bad for my mom's christmas gift. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dave said...

Sure. Here it is:

MY YUKU FORUM.

Dave

Melissa said...

do you happen to have the direct link to the goodyear uploads??? I must be slow cause I cannot find them on the link you posted. Thanks so much!!

Melissa said...

OK i found the christmas links on your site but you said you have to give premission to be able to see the links. Could you please let me have premission??? I really need these songs for my mom for christmas (cause I can only find the LPs online). Thanks!!!

Dave said...

You'll need to register with YUKU and let me know what User Name you register with. You can't see the shares because I have them hidden until I give access.

Dave

Melissa said...

I am registered as Mkoc1987.

Dave said...

I don't find it. When you go to your Account what does it say after Mkoc1987? It should be Mkoc1987 DOT "something".

Dave

Melissa said...

It is
MKoc198.mostlyghostlymusicsharingblaaahhhggg

Dave said...

Hmm. Ok. I'll try it again.

Dave

carlt said...

Dave,

I guess my lack of computer skills is showing. I cannot find the download button at the Yuku site. I thought my user name was carlt but when I logged in, it would only accept my email (carld@theoso.com) as my user name.
Please help. Thanks. Carl

carlt said...

Sorry, I forgot to check the email follow-up box. Carl

Dave said...

That's because the music sharing sections are hidden until I open them for you. I'll try that user ID, and see if it works.

Dave

carlt said...

Thanks, Dave.

Be sure to let me know at the email address below how I should proceed. Carl

Dave said...

Melissa and Carlt. You should both be able to see the sharing sections now.

Carlt - your YUKU ID is carlt.mostlyghostlymusicsharingblaaahhhggg

Hi Dave, my name in Ken. I too am a Goodyear/Firestone Christmas fan.
Lots of memories while watching a color wheel change colors of the old aluminum tree!
Is there any possible way you could share access so that I may download these?
I am registered as vinylgator.
I see that you accept donations to keep these songs available. I would be happy to contribute a little something.

kenneth said...

Could you please share access to the Goodyear Christmas files?

I thought I had already given you access?

Hello again, it looks as if these links have also fallen victim to the killing spree of lately. Only Vol.11 was downloadable, all others were invalid and unavailable.

I assume this Yuku thing is obsoltete, as I couldn't find any hint above the main header photo to that.

But great that you have uploaded all the pictures here, so I could take those in, in case I will find more albums of this in the future.
Thanks for the efforts, it is greatly appreciated!

Please help! I need to find links for the Goodyear Great songs of Christmas. I'm trying to surprise my wife for our 1st Christmas together. She would be ecstatic! Thank you for any help you provide.

grant said...

While these links seem to be gone I am able to see the entire series as a bit torrent download by using the search term - goodyear and christmas . I also found a site that is selling CD's and downloads of the entire series for some $$. It seems to be legal to do this if you own the record, and if you don't, he's selling the used lp's with CD copies included. He's at http://www.great-songs-of-christmas.com/

grant said...

I found the entire series as a bit torrent download using the search string goodyear and christmas. I've also found a site that is selling CD's and mp3 downloads. It appears to be legal to download or buy a CD if you own the record, and if you don't he's selling used copies of the LP's with CD copies. He's at http://www.great-songs-of-christmas.com/ (but wants some pretty big bucks for the set)

Dave said...

You can also find CD copies on BluJay.

Hi Dave, my user name on Yuku is pixelmech - I would love to have access. Thanks.

KatWoman said...

Hi, Dave, I'm so excited to find this page. Could you please, please give me access to your downloads? My dad bought these albums every year, and I would so love to be able to listen to them again. My Yuku user name is katwoman9999.

Dave said...

I will try to work something out. Email me at davesworld56 at msn dot com and I will email you back the links.

Dana Collins said...

Dear Dave, I came across your blog, and as others noted, these Goodyear collections have a very dear place in my heart - reminding me of my family Christmases when I was a child.

Is there any chance of re-upping the links, or getting a direct link to download the albums? It would be such a welcome addition this holiday season.

Thank you very much in advance, and happy holidays!

Juliet said...

I don't know if you're still around or hosting these or whatever. But I went to Yuku and it was gone, most other of your links seem to be gone too. I would love to find these goodyear albums and of course megaupload is gone. maybe drop box? Thanks

Dave said...

I offer them here:
